Congratulations to the talented (and humble) Roy Kesey who recently received news that his story "Wait," published in The Kenyon Review was chosen by Stephen King for Best American Short Story!
Anyone who knows Roy will not be suprised by this glorious news, but rather, feel assured that things are right in the literary world.
