This one has been several years in the making. It’s been hard finding it a home, probably because it’s really hard to pigeonhole it into a genre (he tells himself, staring at rejection letter number 10).
In all seriousness this is one of the favorite stories of the ones I’ve written, so wish me luck.
(It occurs to me that I write a ton if you count the blog, but I have a really hard time finishing any of my fiction. And yet, there’s probably enough here for a couple of books. Weird.)
