Back in February, Elizabeth Foulke, the new editor at the annual print journal OCEAN STATE REVIEW, contacted me to say they wanted to start posting online content, including my story "The Snows of Yesteryear" (solicited for their current issue by their previous editor, Charles Kell). I said sure, great and forgot about it. I missed their Facebook post with my story last month.
Here's the online post of "The Snows of Yesteryear" from OCEAN STATE REVIEW. It turns on one of my obsessions, the significance and afterlife of our stuff. Loved the cover of the magazine, and it was fun getting an elegant print journal in the mail.
Speaking of print journals, I'm waiting for F(R)ICTION and I"m not sure why I thought issue 14 would be published on August 15, since there's no sign of it on social media. Curious about their cover, since they do a lot of interesting art (inside the journal too). Maybe it's their new banner on Facebook (below). Curious about CAUSTIC FROLIC too, which their editor Jacob Anthony Moniz sent to me on August 12. Not here yet.
Lots of nice comments and retweets of my SWEET interview, but coming out as bipolar to such a large audience definitely makes me feel vulnerable. I guess I've committed to it, with THE LUNATICS' BALL.
