My short story "Only For the Crossed-Out" appears in the forthcoming anthology The Master in Café Morphine: A Homage to Mikhail Bulgakov (ed. Dan T. Ghetu, Ex Occidente Press Bucharest 2011).
(At left is a handsome Bulgakov-themed illustration by C.C. Askew.)
I have heard fairly persuasive rumors that this long-awaited volume will see publication in March 2011.
Available to pre-order from the publisher: http://exoccidente.com/morphine.html
Once again, I am stunned to see my work appear between hard covers alongside stories by Mark Valentine, R.B. Russell, Reggie Oliver, and other gifted practitioners.
UPDATE: Now it looks like this book will emerge sometime in June/July. I have done final corrections on my story and had a peek at the interior layout- it's another triumph of book design by Dan and team. Collectors and aesthetes rejoice!
