Paul D. Brazill on the latest Thuglit outing

The indefatigable Paul D. Brazill has put up a bit on Thuglit 11 over on his blog. I suspect these tales may be on the dark side of the spectrum for the faint of heart, i.e., me, but somehow Paul always makes the stories he describes sound appealing. It is very hard to write up short fiction, but Paul seems able to always be both succinct and descriptive. Check out his review, and then you can follow the link if you'd like to purchase a copy.

Hannah Tinti's story class at One Story

Yes, I've fallen sadly behind about posting story related content here. But I did want to give a heads up to anyone who might be doggedly lingering here that the renowned literary journal One Story is offering a class taught by One Story editor and celebrated author in her own right Hannah Tinti teaching story fundamentals. I took the editing class that One Story lead earlier this year and was quite impressed by it, although I think there remained a gap between seeing in this case Will Allison's editing skills and my own attempts to achieve the same. I remain impressed and even astounded by the amount of care and consideration they give to the stories that they publish.

This second class will be a bit different in that it is going to teach you about working on your own story. I tend to like classes where you work hard and have something to show for your efforts at the end. This one looks promising. In any case, the details are HERE .
