Rose & Thorn Journal

She’d translated the crassness and the awkwardness and the abuses, and explained to a hundred women that their man had stopped writing.  How it didn’t matter, that the sea was full.

I’ve had a piece taken  up by Rose & Thorn Journal.  There’s plenty of fine writing in their Fall 2010 issue.  The title of the poece they accepted is 金 (pronounced “jin”), and means metal.  The story is Segment Two of a five part series themed loosely around the “five movements” (also called the five elements).  You can find the story here.

Segment One, 水 (“shui”, water), recently appeared in the Last Man Anthology.

Segment Three is titled 木 (“mu”, wood), and takes place in the jungles of northeast Cambodia, during the Khmer Rouge era.

Segment Four, 火 (“huo”, fire), follows a Chinese railroad worker in California.

Segment Five, 土 (“tu”, earth), is still in the “imagining” phase, but will probably be about an unwanted object that just doesn’t seem to stay buried…
