At this very moment, some imagination is spawning something wonderful that might make us tremble.

Great new stuff this week.
There’s a new issue of The Economy out and it’s stellar with great work,…
Great stuff. Thanks for including Caller Thirteen!
Here’s a peek at our author photo for the 2014 Little, Brown catalogue. The dinosaurs insisted on being included, though we stopped short of giving them co-author credit. What The Dinosaurs Did Last Night will be available everywhere this fall. Get excited!
Do yourself a favor and take two minutes to go read Matt Fogarty’s TURTLE POWER over at Johnny America.
He was big into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles then, even long after they were popular, and a lot of the words he’d use were turtle-related. … One night he told me how his family didn’t speak any English around the house and TMNT’s how he learned the language.
Dante was short and had a gold tooth and whenever he was over the house smelled like skunk. He hadn’t been around much lately, so I thought they split. When my mom told him about the contest he came right over.
Read my new one from Pithead Chapel’s February issue. Caller Thirteen is a short story about a boy living in the city with his mentally handicapped uncle and a mother of questionable caliber. Hope you like it.
Once this was finished I elected to show the woman my new toothbrush and powder, which I had in my vest pocket. She became excited by the suggestion, for she was also a recent convert to this method, and she hurried to fetch her equipment that we might brush simultaneously.
