Going shopping at the body part market (my new story published!)

I have a really short story called “Bargain Brain” up at the marvelous Apocrypha and Abstractions website. It’s sort of a dystopian thing and the main character is a young boy accompanying his mother on a trip to the body part market. 36 more words

A Book Review of Swan Song by Robert McCammon

Swan Song by Robert McCammon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
