Read my short story “My Pet Trilobite” in Ricky’s Back Yard based on a real-life sideshow fraud.

Other published works: “Don’t Ask” in Profane Journal, “Selfie” in Deadly Quill, and “Passover” in Sprout.

I have reread it, and your January 29 letter is particularly remarkable. Perhaps we should include a bit of your poetry, or your essay on Uccello? The effect would be a sort… Read more
