New & Forthcoming. Patreon & the End of the Blog.

At long last, The Right Way to Be Crippled and Naked: The Fiction of Disability: An Anthology is available from Cinco Puntos Press.

Also, my story "Kentrobarbative" is forthcoming in the Denver Quarterly.

My poem "Dear Angel" was included in If You Can Hear This: Poems In Protest of an American Inauguration published by Sibling Rivalry Press

2 small stories from 77 Irish Love Stories are forthcoming in Duende.

Lastly, I think the time has come to withdraw from this blog. Work I share here is considered published, even if only a few friends and a few relatives (appalled, presumably) are the only ones who ever read it. As my work becomes slightly better known, this has started to create problems. Also, the blog looks increasingly tacky and antiquated -- I've never had the skills or funds for a proper website. It seems wise to call a halt, at least for now.

A kind friend told me about Patreon, which allows me to share work in a more controlled way and also raise to funds. As my readers can likely guess, my wandering life has grown more difficult and precarious. Being able to raise even a little money has immediately made a big difference in my life.

For a more comprehensive explanation of my work and goals, here is "What I Do, What I've Done, What I Aim to Do".

I am grateful to anyone who does helps, or even considers doing so. Please know that it is NOT this hippie dropout's intention to create a paywall. My work is always available on request to anyone who asks for it. Patreon is simply helping to make my life more survivable. For that, I am deeply grateful.
