Thanks to the very neat online lit mag Animal: A Beast of a Literary Magazine for publishing–or being about to publish–this very very short short story. A shad is a type of fish. Is there, perhaps, a recurring theme on this blog? Link to come when the story is posted.
Thanks to Cargo for publishing this piece about an unlikely movement in central Cuba. Hoping to return and, with luck, sit in with Valdivia’s band.
For publishing “Swimming,” inspired by the old Henry Badowski song, “Swimming with the Fish in the Sea.” Which is still worth a listen. (The story is reprinted on a separate page on this site. Look above the waterline.)
