I'll be reading in the Flash Fiction Collective Reading on Thursday, September 7, 7 pm, at Alley Cat Books, 3036 24th St., in the Mission. Here's the Facebook invite:
Join us for what periodicals around the world have called the "single best flash fiction reading series in the history of the planet, and that includes Denver."
There won't be any goats at this reading, but we will provide good swill of all sorts, and there are rumors of savory snacks.
These fine writers will carry us to other worlds in their stories, and we'll have an open mic to boot.
