The latest issue of Grain magazine, dedicated to the theme of “Scorn” and featuring an arresting painting by Tamara Bond on the cover, is on newsstands now. One of my stories, “Open All Night,” appears in it. Not long ago, a story of mine was included in Kiss Machine’s “Shame” issue; now I’ve got one in Grain’s “Scorn” issue. What do you suppose that says about me and my work?
In any event, it's clear from the content of the issue that the theme of scorn makes for some great writing. No excerpts are available online as of yet, but if your local bookshop, magazine store, or library carries Grain magazine, I encourage you to check it out.
