So it's summer, and I'm actually reading things other than student work, but it just reminds me of things I haven't read that I feel like I should. Today's book I have not read is Independence Day by Richard Ford. That's right, haven't read that one. But one of my past professors told a story about how he was jerk, so that probably makes it okay.

Grey, gray, grey, grey, definitely. Reading a Stoker biography and turns out he had grey eyes and loved it! So does one of my brothers, though I'm not sure about his feelings on having said grey eyes. Why do I bring it up? No reason.

So my story "Paternity" (that's right, fatherhood comes natural to me--though it hasn't right yet) is in the Summer 2009 issue of the illustrious LITnIMAGE. Not only does it have a great look as you'd expect considering the name (in this issue check out Leslie Ditto's bizarro cool work) but has also published some killer fiction in the past, including Jenny William's “The Fisherman’s Wife”, which won the 2008 Million Writers Award.
