blog post. That’s right, if you’re tired of paying for books and magazines, just follow this link to my most recent online publication, a short story titled “Defending the Home Front.” It appears in the most recent edition of Bending Genres magazine. Thanks to editor Robert Vaughan and fiction editor Meg Tuite for recognizing genius when they see it. The story is a whacky take on how local political disputes can lead to over-the-top escalations of response and reprisal. Have at it.
