Me in Plots with Guns

So my story "The Wellum" is in the Winter 2012 issue of Plots with Guns. It's the story of a deranged Nancy Drew or Harriet the Spy type who accidentally discovers something terrible. Also, I get to slip in a Charles Fort reference.

The issue includes lots of other great stories (with guns) by:

Eric J. Bandel
Taylor Brown
Terry Butler
Andy Henion
Erik Lundy
Dan Ray
Nick Ripatrazone (novel excerpt)
Tim L. Williams

May all your plots have guns.
