THREADCOUNT has just published my peculiar hybrid microflash “Fyodor Translates Edgar Translates the Universe” in their spring issue. I love THREADCOUNT, “a biannual online literary journal dedicated to hybrid forms, work that challenges genre boundaries and resists classifiable form, that experiments with texture and convention, that (like fabric) packs a lot in a limited space.” I love THREADCOUNT’s spare, elegant design, and above all their array of flash and incomparable roster of authors (among them, Lily Hoang, Matt Bell, Kathy Fish, Megan Giddings, Ben Loory, Kelly Magee, Christopher James, Brian Oliu). A big thank you to editors Annie Bilancini, Steve Dudas, C.J. Opperthauser, and Matt Weinkam (who called my flash “badass,” which made my day)!
Lovely cover art by Alex Kuno. A mythical beast? A vegetation deity? Hybrid flora and fauna?
