Publication: Oops

It's not like me to miss a publication, but I have done. My story "Tangled Up in Some Sort of Cerulean Hue" appeared in volume 3 of Ephemera in December (pp 49-52). It's a mash up of not quite Dylan lyrics from Blood on the Tracks (obviously stealing its title from the first track) with Marlowe's Doctor Faustus. It's best to listen to the album first, see a production of the play, then read the story.

If you don't have that much time, just read the story.

If you can find it -- it's a small press lit mag put out by students here, which means I only came across it by chance because there was a copy lying on the table in one of the other department buildings where I had a meeting this morning. I picked it up, a faint bell ringing in my head. Oh yeah -- that story. I had written the story originally for the Bayou Review, but then we moved up here and I submitted it here instead.

Then I immediately forgot about it. It's a nice way to be reminded, I must say. Of course, this means it will be difficult to get hold of, so if you want a copy let me know and I'll see what I can do.

I would love a copy!

How about having it scanned if copies are scarce?

Here! Here! I'd hate to put you through the trouble of scavaging for a copy, but I'd love to read it!
