‘Little Digs’ is the third story I’ve been lucky enough to have published in The Dark magazine, and it’s now the third story Charles Payseur has reviewed over at Quick Sip Reviews.

Over at SF Signal, A.C. Wise has posted the latest in her series of essays on “Women to Read!” — and this month, she focuses on “stories designed to sit uncomfortably, twist against expectations, offer truths that won’t stay put, narratives that can’t be trusted, and characters who refuse to hold their shapes.” Alongside discussions of…… Continue reading A.C.
