New story in issue five of Kilgore Quarterly! It features comics by Noah Van Sciver and Sam Spina, an essay by John Kuebler, an interview in comics with Anders Nilsen, and more. It can be ordered here.
Valkyrie is up today at Vol. 1 Brooklyn. Thanks to editor Tobias Carroll for taking the piece. After having the idea for the story, I thought, “That doesn’t sound like something I’d usually write.” I had just finished some longer work, so I was interested in trying something different. Anyway, while reading the story, maybe listen to this?
“Collar” is up today at The Fanzine. It’s part of a loosely connected series called MILK TEETH. More on that in the coming months.
“Vessel” is in the new issue of SAND, a literary magazine based in Berlin. It’s almost sold out, so I think you’ll have to go to Berlin for a copy. Haven’t you always wanted to go to Berlin? It’s alright, I hear the weather’s just fine.
Bliss and Constriction is up today at Spork. It’s about a couple that travels to Brazil to join a cult. Also featured: reliquaries, windshields, beaches.
“Natives” is in the 10th and final issue of Pear Noir. It can be preordered here. It’s a story about child thieves and a town that gets caught up in it all.
Partway through writing this story, I lost direction with it. I had a draft that wasn’t working, but couldn’t pinpoint the problem. I sent it to my sister Rain, and she helped to identify the issues and brainstorm some solutions. Her assistance was invaluable, and I greatly appreciate it.
Lake of Earth is available to order today.
There’s an excerpt from the book available here.
You can read more about the creation of the book here.
Thank you so much to Caketrain editors Amanda Raczkowski and Joseph Reed for their careful editing and design of the collection. It’s been a great process to a be a part of, and I’m terribly proud of the book.
