A New Dr. Phil Story Online!

Southern Fried Weirdness

T.J. McIntyre has just e-published my short story "Giant Cicadas and Other Odd Indignities" at his weekly Southern Fried Weirdness Online.

"Giant Cicadas..." was born in the humid heat of East Lansing MI during Week 4 of the 2004 Clarion workshop. Listening to the cicadas that summer, I remembered the racket caused by cicadas in Greensboro NC during the mid-70s and seeing the eerie split open body shells with clear eye lenses of the newly molted cicadas. Alas, that first version did not fair well in that crucible of Clarion, the Crit Circle, crashing and burning as a humorous tall tale. I think I've got it right this time, though. (grin)
