All Concepts Dissolve Under Analysis

I think that’s from the sayings of the Buddha. Although it might be Zhuang Zhou. I couldn’t find it online and my library is in boxes. This is about my general level of intellectual rigor.

Some of my work:

“Georgia Buddha” – Received the Passage Prize First Place for Fiction, and featured in the collection from Passage Press. The hardcover and paperback editions have sold out, but if the set gets rereleased, it would be at the link below.

“Sky Burial” – It’s shorter than Georgia Buddha, touches on similar themes.

“Shark Fin Soup” – Published in Apocalypse Confidential‘s SUMMER OF THE SHARK Special, this one is, perhaps unsurprisingly, shark-themed.

“Waiting on Redemption” – A very short piece. It’s my version of a horror story.

“Rough Hump” – This was initially meant for a science-fiction flash-fiction anthology with a dystopian theme, which explains why it’s short and downbeat.

“Borges at a Movie Palace” – Another very short piece, which is appropriate because it’s my attempt at a Western in the style of Borges.

Boll Weevil – In progress novel, crime story set in the South after World War II and some other places as well. First Draft Excerpt Here:

Bell Weevil – Bodhidharma Died in California. It’s the title of a short story which didn’t work but does as the novel’s second strand, taking place in California as the Cold War has ended early with the other team winning. Second Draft Excerpt Here:
