My short story, Tin Man, is up at Big Pulp today.
Big Pulp is an internet magazine featuring a wide range of pulp fiction and genre artwork. The editors’ definition of genre fiction is very broad, running the gamut from literary fiction and experimental poetry to locked room mysteries, sword and sorcery, and space opera.
Tin Man is a story about Malachi Woodman, a fellow who has crawled into the bottle after his girlfriend left him; and he’s dying of a broken heart as a result. Only magic can save him, but at what cost?
It’s the third in a series of stories I’m calling Seattle Supernatural. The first was I Must to the Barber’s Chair, which appeared September 1st, 2oo8, at Every Day Fiction; the second was And Bay the Moon, which was published this past March at The Absent Willow Review.
Check out all three, if you would like; let me know what you think.
