“The Kamikaze Caves”: short story, to be featured in Hong Kong Noir, the latest in Akashic Books’ popular series. My first stab at noir! The result is probably closer to St. John of the Cross than Sam Spade.
“Eight Commandments,” Austin Monthly, January issue: My suggestions for how to improve Austin, were I to magically be “elected” benevolent dictator. One of the weirdest things I’ve ever written. So fun to write.
“What’s Still Halfway Decent About America?” — A poem about a lost wallet, a truck stop rendezvous, and a pie. Published by the new and very cool kid on the block, P98, edited by the brilliant R. Jay Magill, featuring other great contributors like Alex Ross and Jonathan Lethem. It’s pretty print journalism, y’all! Scanned clip of said poem coming as soon as it lands in my mailbox, promise.
“Mourning is Magic” — I loved interviewing the brave and boundary-leaping artist Alyssa Taylor Wendt on her October installation at Austin’s Co-Lab Gallery. Featured in Tribeza Magazine’s Oct 2017 issue.
“Guided by Voices” — I’m crazy about podcasts and comedy, so it was a dream to profile Griffin McElroy, one of the three comedic geniuses behind advicecast and TV show My Brother, My Brother and Me for Tribeza Magazine.
“Humans of the Greenbelt” — I spend a LOT of time on Austin’s beautiful urban hiking trail, the Greenbelt. So I loved coming up with this satirical wildlife guide to all the species of Austinite I spot there for Tribeza Magazine.
