Publication: Wixey


My flash fiction piece "Wixey" will be coming out in Wild Violet. The story is inspired by the many horror stories that inevitably come up at MLA, the most stressful conference for people in languages and literature because it's where the job interviews are done. It's a short piece, but it came together quite satisfyingly nonetheless.

Wild Violet has also published a couple of other pieces by me: "Corrections to the Rules of Fimble Fowl (for 3 players or 4)" and "Me and Margery Kempe." I think it's safe to say that editor Alyce Wilson appreciates my particular sense of humour.

"Wixey" is excellent, and I'll be reading the earlier works shortly. Thanks for the pointer! (Too tired to work up a jejeune pun on that last sentence.)

Grazie! Fatigue and punning are a dangerous mix anyway -- you don't want to pull a hamstring.

Or display too much of the literary equivalent of hambone.
