At my request (because I inexplicably failed to take any photos at all), Black Lawrence Press chapbook editor Kit Frick sent me a picture of the chapbook display at AWP18. (The book display was a large table to the left of it.) There it is, THE MISSING GIRL, second on the top row. The chapbook signing attracted a lot of readers, and BLP sold all but one copy by the end of the book fair.
The local indie bookstore, Books on B, has sold out, and just bought five more copies of THE MISSING GIRL. Small numbers, but it's nice to know people are still reading it.
NOTHING SHORT OF: Selected Tales from 100 Word Story will be out in April but is already shipping. Pre-order here from the publisher Outpost 19 for $10 and free shipping.
“These beautifully economical short stories (yes, truly stories) are photographs built with words. They capture a moment and a lifetime, a fraction and a whole. They are epics the size of sound bites, and they prove once and for all that size doesn’t matter. Just the stories that fit inside.” - Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World
"Let’s call them Centuries because they screw up time and space, these articulate deconstructions of Quantum Mechanics, hopped up and happening Nano-narratives lasting lifetimes. I like how they are justified, how they square-off and square-up on the infinite and bounded singularity of the page, how they present themselves as instant Polaroid-ic printed fictions, developing, pixel by pixilation, in front of our revving and REMing eyes and I’s. Moving and moving, these microscopic millennia in nutshells, expanding from the pancaked periods that map the infinite concentrated trail of ellipses, begin to explain, approaching the paradox of the accelerating dark mattered universe… (That, by the way, is a 100-word blurb)" - Michael Martone, author of Michael Martone and Winesburg, Indiana
