New Short Story live at Bourbon Penn

Bourbon Penn, the cool lit/genre zine just published my new short story “Swim Wants to Know If It’s as Bad as Swim Thinks.”

The opening paragraph:

What I remember from that day is the road. It went on for forever and went nowhere. The trees on the sides of the road were towers reaching up into the sky, keeping us boxed in, keeping us from choosing another direction. The trees had orange leaves when we started and green ones when it was over. The dotted lines in the middle of the road were white the whole time. I followed those, carefully, like our lives depended on them. I believed they did.

  1. Man, love that. Off to read. The line about the leaves is brilliant, great way to show time. Has a very DARK TOWER feel to it. Always a pleasure to read your work, Paul.
