Good Reading

A few recommendations:

After you finish with the excellent new issue of SmokeLong Quarterly, then pick up a copy of Roger Morris' The Gentle Axe. You won't be disappointed with this atmospheric mystery. I devoured it. I've just started Pia Z. Ehrhardt's gorgeous short story collection Famous Fathers. Pia's writing is so breathtakingly honest and her details are so fresh, so exquisite, you'll want to read this slowly.

Also Storyglossia's Issue 20 has published with many great stories including my dear friend Myfanwy Collins' story "Orange Crush." I swear you'll fall in love with Myfanwy's story of painful teenage crushes.


this journal from Long Island University just took a story of mine. I'm delighted--I really like the stories they publish.
