Smile, Hon, You're Published!

Well, that’s almost what the editor said.

I’m smiling because my fiction has been published in the latest issue of Smile, Hon, You’re In Baltimore!

For a little literary zine, it packs a big punch. Smile, Hon, You’re In Baltimore! has gotten rave reviews from UTNE Reader, Urbanite and Pop Candy (USA Today’s Blog).

Baltimore Magazine named Smile, Hon, You're in Baltimore! the city's "Best Zine" in its August "Best of Baltimore 2008" issue.

Baltimore City Paper also called Smile Hon Baltimore’s best zine, describing it as “surprisingly fascinating, consistently absurd, and often weird as hell . . . Baltimore at its bizarre best.”

Zine World says Smile Hon “adequately captures Baltimore's grit and glitter, horror and heroes.”

The Johns Hopkins Newsletter says, “Smile Hon revels in Baltimore's every eccentricity”

Even Maryland Mayor Martin O’Malley (how’s that for alliteration?) said that Smile Hon “caused a bit of a stir in my office.”

My story, “Little B&O,” is featured in the latest issue. “Little B&O” is an outtake from TRACKS, my novel in stories. Other authors in issue 11 include Caryn Coyle, Fernando Quijano III, Ben Shaberman, Rosalia Scalia and Alex Hewett.
