This month I’m truly delighted to share a story published in the esteemed Ligottian literary journal Vastarien. My story “Fugue” is a quiet, introspective piece about lost connections and longing that shares a table of contents with Gwendolyn Kiste, Daniel Braum, Wendy N. Wagner, and many other wonderful authors. In addition to publishing Vastarien, Grimscribe Press released one of my favorite collections, Christopher Slatsky’s “The Immeasurable Corpse of Nature,” and Gemma Files’ recent Bram Stoker Award winning collection “In That Endlessness, Our End.” Needless to say, I’m deeply honored to work with them.
The cover art by Jason Barnett is pretty stunning, too:
Vastarien is always worth the more than reasonable price of a physical copy, but if you prefer e-book or live on a tight budget, they offer a “pay what you can” option for electronic copies. Considering the challenges of keeping a small press in business, this seems like a very kind compromise that gives more readers access.
