Fiction River: Recycled Pulp

FR15 Recycled Pulp ebook cover webMy short story “Prism of the Crab Gods” appears in Fiction River: Recycled Pulp. This is a fantastic anthology, and I’m incredibly proud to be among the authors below. “Prism of the Crab Gods” was my first pro-sale, and it is a story close to my heart since it is about a a young, disabled and abused boy who clings to the hope that his three hermit crabs will save him and his family.

The editor, John Helfers, had this to say about the story: “In an anthology of excellence, this story stands out for its heartbreaking eloquence, as well as defining a situation that could be happening down the block on your street, and with nary a futuristic or fantastical trope in sight; just the shattering look inside a young boy’s world, and the vivid imagination he uses to keep reality from destroying him completely. I know I’ve been changed by reading it, and I hope you will be as well.”
