“The Happy Family,” my short-short about the Barnum-ian weirdness below, has been accepted to Sundress Publications‘ forthcoming e-anthology, Curious Specimens, edited by Jennifer Hanks and Beth Couture.
From the editors: “We want your Wonder Room’s creepiest inhabitants—think the Mütter Museum, reanimated Fiji Mermaids, and all creatures caught between life and death. While we’d love to see your poetry and flash fiction, we also welcome ephemera. Send us excerpts from taxidermy pamphlets, specimen lists, and medical notes. May your most unsettling work find a home with us: bottled, hand-labeled, and doused in formaldehyde.”
My kind of book! Release details to come.
