Literary Hatchet #12 is Now Available
I'm a bit late on this, but the August Issue of The Literary Hatchet is now available. As before, you can either pick up a free online copy at http://literaryhatchet.com, or get a paper copy (for $14) on Amazon (www.amazon.com, of course). Once again, I'd like to thank the staff at the Hatchet for publishing my story--Publisher/Executive Editor Stefani Koorey, Short Story Editor Eugene Hosey, Poetry Editor Michael Brimbau, Humor Editor Sherry Chapman, and the rest.
My contribution, "St. Vincent" concerns a Mob hitman, with a big twist. This one is definitely not for the kiddies! I'm sharing the magazine with some illustrious authors, too. Bruce Boston is an awards magnet--4 Bram Stoker Awards, a record 7 Asimov's Reader's Awards, a record 7 Rhysling Awards, and a Pushcart Prize. And it runs in the family, as his wife, Marge Simon, kicks in another Rhysling, and 3 more Bram Stokers. Wayne Scheer and AJ Huffman have each been nominated several times for Pushcart Prizes. Other writers include Rick McQuiston, Lawrence Buentello, Ryan Falcone, Michael Fantina, Gary R. Hoffman, Matthew Wilson, and Michael Lee Johnson, to name just a few. It all adds up to dozens of stories, poems, and nonfiction articles--300 pages, all for no cost to the reader. And while you're on the website you can pick up the earlier 11 issues (also for free online), or learn more about the infamous Lizzie Borden double murder case, and/or the history of Fall River, Massachusetts. Enjoy!
