I try to keep this blog about mostly my online publications, but I was just so thrilled with two new print publications in two literary magazines I very very much admire. One is for my story, Gradients. If you see the tagline for the blog, it mentions people who can fly, and that’s what the story is about. Last year, my favorite story was Collection from Existence. I’d say this year, Gradients was one of my most important stories as it explored a lot of issues I’d been pondering. The editor was not just brilliant, but really made a difference in the way I not only viewed stories, but myself as a writer. I am extremely grateful to him, as well as the chance to dedicate this story to a writer I admire, Rio.
The second story is the Buddha of Many Parts, dedicated to my friends, Joy and Jill Fan. The magazine was absolutely beautiful, and a tome! Over 600 pages in length! I’ll have more on both stories later. But needless to say, it was a real special week and I can’t imagine being happier than seeing these two stories in print.
