I’m fortunate to have three pieces in the Spring Summer ’12 issue of Epiphany, an excellent literary journal that publishes some pretty cutting edge stuff. Of the three pieces, one is “Getting Beaten,” a visceral and hard-edged story from the Saw collection. The other two are new. Of these, one is an essay/process piece solicited by the Epiphany editors. It’s titled “The Process of Getting Beaten,” and it’s generally about how the story came to be, but it also veers into, among other things, kicking ass, getting your ass kicked, the nature or road rage, cowardice, automotive sabotage, and knowing oneself. The other piece, “The Roaring Engine of Here” is new–the title piece of the chapbook-length collection of prose-poem type things I’m going to start shopping around this fall.
Big thanks to Epiphany for supporting my work.
