Eric Hoffer Award winners posted

September 17, 2012

It’s finally posted, so I can talk about it.  My short story, Knitting the Unraveled Sleeves has been selected for an Editor’s Choice Award in the Eric Hoffer Prose Award competition and will be included in the annual anthology of short prose, Best New Writing 2013.  The book will be available in early October.

Here is the link to the announcement: http://www.hofferaward.com/HAprosewinners.html

And here is the link to order the book: http://www.hopepubs.com/pubbuy.html#BNW

I’m particularly proud of the story and very happy to see it found a proper home.


My new short story, ‘Waiting for the Wolf’ is now available in Lost In Thought: Issue 2

March 10, 2012

This remarkable magazine, LOST IN THOUGHT, is published in Canada and is a stunning mix of visual art, poetry and fiction.  One of the finest magazines I’ve ever seen, I am proud to be included in the collection.  Each illustrated story and poem pairs a writer with either a photographer or an illustrator.  The result is singularly arresting and represents a new class of magazine, one that rivals any that you’ve seen before.

I’m also happy to say that my story, On the train to Otsu Station will be included in an upcoming charity anthology, New Sun Rising.  Proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to charities providing earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. The anthology was sidetracked for a while, but is now in gear and I’ll post a link for purchase when it’s available.

In the meantime, here is a link to information on the ongoing effort to publish:

As for the rumors, I will have a poem published in Blue Fifth Review sometime in May and my story, Waiting for the Wolf will appear in print sometime soon in the Canadian journal, Lost in Thought.  In the meantime, I’m working on two novels, one of which should be finished in November of this year.
