Hello, this year Easter is on April Fool’s Day. Sweet. Two for one deal. Here are some things that are going on.
1. Double Bird, my new collection of short stories, is out from Maudlin House. It can be purchased in paperback, direct from the publisher here.
These short stories are odd little ducks … A man finds a seashell and it tells him to do things, some bad, some good … An adjunct professor decides he doesn’t want to teach at the community college anymore, he begins a journey into the underworld, his dog at his side … A giant eagle egg is found lying on the lawn, it shakes and continues to grow larger, and larger … Let’s out go on a date with someone who has little tiny tigers in their blood … Let’s make love to a severed head … A man is crushed with a car and asks a personal favor of the driver, he wants to run some errands around town before he dies—cash this check at the bank, pick up stamps at the post office, go with you on your job interview … Double Bird. Vivd. Odd. Hurtful. Unloved. Wet with dew. Out of its mind with joy. 232 pages. 30+ stories. $16. The snake and the severed head was illustrated by the amazing Tyler Gross, btw.
2. Speaking of stories, I have two new stories that were just published online. Both are in Double Bird. The first one is called, ‘rek-rek-kek-kek-kek’ and it was published by Fanzine, thanks for Blake Butler. The other story is called ‘Shwimps’ and it was published by Faded Out.
