Earnest Distractions

“Evil is whatever distracts” –Franz Kafka

My infamous Navy story “Beef” is forthcoming in So Say We All’s latest installment of Incoming.

New short stories in Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading and pacificREVIEW and forthcoming in the Mississippi Review and Zyzzyva.

Essays forthcoming in Black Candies and Funhouse.

A brief series of columns about gambling and casino culture.

I’ve been a columnist for Razorcake, America’s only non-profit independent music zine, for the last 17 years. My print-only column appears bi-monthly. Do your part and subscribe.
