New story, "Osvaldo's Guitar," in Hart House Review

My third short story accepted for public consumption, "Osvaldo's Guitar," is forthcoming in 2011 edition of the Hart House Review: It's a story set in Western Nicaragua. Updates to follow about publication date, and the launch party, which usually features public readings. Eep!

Thanks again for all of your support, in general and in the recent Broken Pencil Death Match. My story, "The Expiry Dates," is out, but Round 4, between "Fatty Fat Fat Fat" by Jeffrey Ross and "Deathmatch" by Martha Tuff, is neck-and-neck going into the homestretch. Read and vote at, and as of Monday, watch for the semi-finals between "Free Therapy" by Colin Brush and "Field Guide to Kleptoparasitism," by Braydon Beaulieu. It's shaping up to be a knock-down, drag-out war!

If you've stumbled across this, thanks for stopping by! Here are two more links:
