Seize The Press

I’m pleased to have a new short fiction out today through Seize The Press. It’s a mash-up with some poetry by Joseph Bouthiette Jr. that I asked him to provide with no prompt other than the title. I’ve borrowed some of his language and beekeeping knowledge, and added a hymenopteran conspiracy against oppressor bipeds I imagined after researching a bit about historical bee farming practices. I guess you could say it’s a revenge story.

Read Eating Bees From The Ass Of God and look for exciting fiction and nonfiction in this issue from awesome cohorts like Eric LaRocca, Lindsay King-Miller, Kurt Schiller, and more!
