It's been brought to my attention that I buried my plug for "Botticelli
" in the middle of a link salad. Consider me suitably chastised, and replugging.
Also, "One-eyed Jack and the Suicide King
," the second-to-last of my four Las Vegas stories (the other two that have been published so far (original typo: "so fat") are "This Tragic Glass
" and "Follow Me Light
"; the fourth one, "And the Deep Blue Sea," is still househunting) is live at the lovely Lenox Avenue
, along with luminaries like nihilistic_kid
, Tim Pratt, Paul Tremblay, Michael Canfield, M. Lynx Qualey, and Peter Gric. "One-eyed Jack and the Suicide King" is both a standalone short story and
a slightly modified version of two nonconsecutive chapters of my novel, One-Eyed Jack
. I'll be updating my bibliography
And I've got the Supreme Court striking down the death penalty for minors in one ear, and the murder of the family of a Chicago-based federal judge who had the misfortune to tangle with white supremacists in the other. What a world.
