5-20-16 Spring Update: New Stories and Articles

A busy and rewarding semester teaching at Texas A&M University. Some wonderful papers, stories, poems, scripts, theatrical and puppet performances emerged from students.

In addition, I was lucky enough to have some stories and articles see publication within the space of several months.

My story “Echolocation” is available in the Arroyo Literary Review Print Issue 8 Spring 2016: https://arroyoliteraryreview.com/

You’ll find “Shadows of the Past in the Sunshine State”–a folklore fieldwork study of ghost legends and ghost tourism in St. Augustine, FL in Western Folklore . Summer/Fall2015, Vol. 74 Issue 3/4, p309-342. 34p. Available here: http://www.westernfolklore.org/WFVol74No3&4.html

I’ve worked on “The Handle” the last couple of years, and it will be published later this summer and reached Runner Up status in Psychopomp Magazine‘s Short Fiction contest for 2016: https://psychopompmag.com/contests/2016-psychopomp-magazine-short-fiction-award/

Most recently the online open source journal Humanities published my article, “We All Live in Fabletown: Bill Willingham’s Fables—A Fairy-Tale Epic for the 21st Century” for the special issue Fairy Tale and its Uses in Contemporary New Media and Popular Culture–Academic Editor: Claudia Schwabe
