The newest news: Paper Darts, Issue 3!Grab yourself a copy of the magazine because it’s gorgeous in word and in picture, and because you can there read my story, “Sheba,” which is about a half dog. Read it here.
At the launch party, I read two new pieces, one called “An Address to my Fellow Residents of Surrency, GA, On July the 25th, 1866,” and another called “Mermaid Explains Your Tongue to You.” They may appear in Paper Darts Issue 4–keep an eye out.
And check out the work of the other folks who read at the party (HINT: they’re also in this issue), if you are interested in such topics as punk rock, apocalyptic pick-up lines, and what happens when you see butts from your bike.
