Featured Author at Pure Slush

You may know me only as the delightfully mysterious man behind the gas mask, but there is more to me. I have a mouth, for example. I also write short stories, and this month Pure Slush is featuring my story "At the Deathbed of William Fear: the Wife, the Priest, the Lover and a Dog" in five parts. A big thanks to Matt Potter! Today, the first and second installments live now. If you are so inclined, please stop by and give this darkly humorous tale a read.

Also from Pure Slush: the collection of bar stories called Barcode, in which my story "The Man Who Can't Be Moved" appears along with lots of other stories by some pretty incredible writers. For a taste of Barcode go HERE.

And also also, my book Conversations with S. Teri O'Type (a Satire) turned one year old this week. You can help me celebrate by, well, buying the book. Or a car. Oh! Or a castle!

I'm traveling back to Germany tomorrow morning after having spent almost two weeks in the States. Wish me safe travels please.

I must be off,
