Silence on a Slow Train

A perfect fit: one of my stories from TRACKS, a novel in stories that takes place on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago, has been published in the latest edition of Slow Trains, an online literary journal. You can find “The Silences” in Volume 7, Issue 3, Winter 2007-2008.

And perhaps there’s no better time than now, as Valentine’s Day approaches, for the publication of this story, an innocent, romantic tale of a young couple in love that balances some of the book’s harsher stories.

The Silences” was featured earlier this year at the Baltimore Book Festival. Now, it finds its way to readers across the nation via Slow Trains.

Slow Trains is read by a large and diverse audience each day, including editors and agents. Fiction from the journal has been selected for "E2Ink - Best of the Online Journals," and in anthology award series, including one guest-edited by Pam Houston.

The editors of Slow Trains also forward appropriate writing to various awards, including the "Best American" series, Pushcart, and O’Henry.

You can read “The Silences” in the current edition of Slow Trains at the link below. Look for me in the fiction column, seated on the left side of the page.

And enjoy the ride!

Really nice story, Eric. Somewhat frightening - make think of one's own future, you know ;)
Let me see. It's third piece of Tracks I've got so far. I like it best of three.
