Good News: BOMB, The Murky Fringe, Liars’ League NYC

Three pieces of good short-short fiction news:

BOMB Magazine is going to publish two of my stories, titled “The Way the Water All Agrees on a River” and “An Obstacle to Empathy.” (Not sure what issue yet. “An Obstacle to Empathy” is the story I read in last summer’s L Magazine Literary Upstart semifinals.)

The Murky Fringe just published my I’m-not-sure-what-you-call-it titled “The League of Men with Nipple Shoulders Is Bigoted and Discriminatory.”

And my story “It’s a Long Story, It’s a Harrowing Yet Uplifting Jewish Story, It’s Based on a True Story” will be performed at the next Liars’ League NYC event: 7:00 p.m., Weds. 6 March, at the KGB Bar. The theme is “Secrets & Lies.”

I can’t be there, unfortunately, but I hope you can!

Addendum: Here’s “It’s a Long Story, It’s a Harrowing Yet Uplifting Jewish Story, It’s Based on a True Story”—both the text of the story itself and an MP3 of the actor Jere Williams reading it at KGB—on the Liars’ League NYC Web site.
