Short Story "Stars Fell on Alabama" Up on ChiZine
Untitled Day at the Beach--Calistro
My story "Stars Fell on Alabama," in which I overdose on dialect, is now live at Chizine! Many thanks to the good people there for taking it, and to vegan_vulcan, chop_sockey, penguinkeggard, and anybody else who might have workshopped it for me way back when. Cue up the Reverend, the Shack Shakers, or Mojo Nixon, and come on down...

touching story (which may sound weird, given the lineaments of it, but yeah! very poignant)

I love regional accents represented in print, so I enjoyed that aspect of it a lot.

Thanks, so glad you liked it! I'm a huge fan of phonetic dialogue/narration, but even for me I had my concerns with this one. Just how it came out--chuffed it worked for you!
