Great news! I’m honored to share here that Newington Blue Press will feature a flash fiction story of mine in the third and final volume of “Buk 100.” The publisher is based in Germany, and produces the “Buk 100” commemorative chapbook series as an homage to German-American writer Charles Bukowski. The first two volumes were beautifully crafted and filled with outstanding contributions from around the world. Thanks once again to Matthias Krueger for including my work.
The story is entitled “Bill and I,” and is my stab at spinning a Bukowski-esque vignette. I’ll share ordering details when they become available.

These things were a blast (no pun intended).
