Just in time for the Christmas season (Is anybody feeling it? I’m not), I’ve got a short Christmas story in the brand new issue of SLUSH PILE. “Merry Gentlemen” is, appropriately, not very merry (adultery, Applebee’s, a shopping mall!). The story originally appeared in the December 23-30 issue of the free alternative weekly DIGBOSTON, which has 70,000 Boston-area readers. (Even though I never got a copy, I was excited to see it on the cover.) My thanks to editor M. Rachel Branwen for including me in both magazines.
