"The Mouth"


Glenn Buttkus said...

MOUTH is quite a tale; loved
posting it on FFTR. Really fakes
out the reader for the first
couple of paragraphs, made me
re-read several times to make
sure you were taking me to
one of your alien landscapes,
your Kafka country imagination.
Yet the read is smooth, and
by the midpoint, you have us
hooked by the world you've
created, and we've accepted.
Actually the piece is upbeat
in a downbeat sort of way.
Really liked it; congrats.

Thanks Glenn. "Mouth" is the kind of story I should be writing everyday. It took a couple years to get picked up. Editors SAY they want something different, but send them something different, and see what happens...
