ACCEPTANCE: short story in The Fiddlehead

I am jacked to announce that I will have a NEW SHORT STORY in an upcoming issue of The Fiddlehead, one of Canada's longest running and most august literary journals. My piece, called "Fall Back," is slated to appear in the magazine's Summer Fiction issue, which, I've been told, will also be The Fiddlehead's 300th issue.

While I've published a couple of book reviews in this journal over the years, this will mark the first time I've had my own creative work appear in its pages. I've been a long-time reader of and submitter to The Fiddlehead - off and on probably since the late 1990s - so I can't tell you how tickled pink I am having received this acceptance. This also marks my second short story acceptance so far this year, and it's beginning to feel like I'm finally getting my short fiction mojo back.

Anyway, I'll post more news when I have it, including when the issue hits the news stands.
