“The Lost Hoof of Fire Horse #12,” my short story surmising the provenance of a very particular gutta-percha dipped paperweight, will be published in the fourth edition of Footnote: A Literary Journal of History on 7/14/20.
From the publisher, Alternating Current Press:
“The fourth issue of our annual literary publication contains 48 works of poetry, photographs, fiction, essays, articles, and nonfiction by 33 authors about various historical topics. Within these pages, you will find contemporary outlooks on history right alongside little-known public domain works that feel as fresh and as vibrant (and as scary) as if they were written today. Here, the old meets the new, and you’ll discover fascinating history from a personal, accessible, non-scholarly literary approach.”
“Trigger Warnings: slavery, racism, gun violence, animal amputation, death in childbirth, bullfighting, suicide, Native American massacres and betrayal by whites, climate trauma, light sexual content of transgender transitioning, light nudity in 16th-c. paintings, animal cruelty, child death (mild horror).”
