New Story at decomP!

The June issue of decomP has gone live, with my story: "Ava Gardner was born in Grabtown" . I'm very excited, of course. The story comes from an idea that was too-too to fly: what would happen if you dropped Infinite Jest in the bathtub? Of course there's none of the original idea left.

My bio is a little off. I claim that I have a recent publication in the Northville Review. So far this is untrue, but Erin will crack any day now.

Ha! Kudos on the story, and on your witty post. There are a few editors I'd love to pull that one on! Erin, you're one of the best.

I really loved this story and especially this line:
Preference, especially after marriage, seemed an unnatural consideration.I like wit.
