Side Effects

"Side Effects" was published in the Spring 2011 issue of The Battered Suitcase.

A brief synopsis:
With his acting career in free fall and his last girlfriend a hundred yard restraining order away, Carter Wall is having a crisis. Or is he? As he tosses down a small handful of Demerol, he certainly doesn’t feel the need to panic. Unfortunately for him, dumb, pill derived happiness doesn't come without a few side effects. 
Curious? Here, have a cookie. (It tastes best on page 102.)

Grandparents Heart Babysitting

NANO's Volume 6 Number 1 features my latest piece of flash fiction, "Grandparents Heart Babysitting". Huge thanks to the editors - certainly for the inclusion, but also, and perhaps more importantly, for their attention to detail, their push to get every word just right.

If you like things to read, short things, stories that move you and leave you wanting more, fictional flings, order your copy here.

Outside of Cars

Read my short story "Outside of Cars" in Corium Magazine's Issue 19.
I mean, if you want.
Just so you know what you're getting yourself into, here's a bit of my correspondence with the editor.
"Your story made me very uncomfortable, which means it made me feel something, which is what we look for at Corium. As long as it's well-written, of course! And your story is, so I am happy to publish it."
Results will more than likely vary.

WARNING

My micro-story, "Warning", has surfaced on Monkeybicycle.
I will leave you to wonder about its inspiration.
