Story Log

You’re probably thinking to yourself, “What, hasn’t he been reading? All that shit he adds to his goodreads list; what’s he doing, slacking?”

Slacking on blogging, that’s for sure (and engaging in general human contact, household chores, and stuff). Been busy, but to make it up to you like an absentee parent who disappears for weeks at a time, then bombards you with gifts, here are three weeks worth of lists of stuff I’ve read…


  • Mary Robison, “Seizing Control”
  • Veronica Schanoes, “Rats”
    (Comments here)
  • Jessica Hagedorn, “Tenement Lover: no palm trees/in new york city”
  • Caroline Cheng, “Consolation”


  • Amy Hempel, “Daylight Come”
  • Amy Hempel, “The Harvest”
  • Jan Lars Jensen, “Happier Days”
  • Jane Avrich, “The Life of Cards”
  • Aimee Bender, “Lemonade”


  • Kate Bernheimer, “Whitework”
  • Judy Budnitz, “Abroad”
  • Barry Hannah, “A Creature in the Bay of St. Louis”
  • Mikal Trimm, “Climbing Redemption Mountain”

  1. The motivation comes from reading the sort of stuff I want to write. Plus, they’re story collections, so I just switch back and forth the same way I flip through channels on TV. Mass transit helps, too.
