Don't Count On a Hurricane To Do a Man's Job

That's the teaser for my story in the latest issue of Thuglit. And I'm with some great company, including Patti Abbott and Bryon Quertermous. Jesus, this is a great mag; and to be apart of the first anniversary issue is pretty friggin' cool.

If There's a Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go was written for a workshop in my MFA program - and it was written really fast. It was a pretty shitty draft that was part third person and part second person (hey, it's an MFA program, I had a right to be pretentous). It's the pop fic secret cabal (and our fearless leader) who deserves the credit for kicking me in the ass and making this story much better than it was destined to be. So, thanks to Alex Jackson, Lyman Feero, Sandra MacDonald, Dr. Dave Page, Debbie Smith, Rebecca Longster, Alice Luxton, Marie Hannan and Jim Kelly.

If you read it, let me know what you think.
