I'm sure everyone has read this already, but The Original of Laura will be saved! See more details here (The Guardian).

In other news, I'm proud to say I will soon be contributing to the venerable Tarpaulin Sky. Also, one of my Foghorn pieces is upcoming in the excellent comedy magazine Monkeybicycle.

Lastly, I have been transfixed by this story I caught in the news the other day: a Catholic priest in San Paolo is missing after being carried away by hundreds of helium balloons. I mean the utmost respect to the priest and hope he will be recovered safely, but I also find this story has so many elements of magical realism, it's mesmerizing. I am working on a short story about it now...
