Main Street Rag Reviews A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing

May 13, 2018 § Leave a comment

CvrMSR_Sp18_FB-200x300Very much enjoyed the new review of the collection by Evan Williams in the Spring 2018 edition of the venerable literary magazine Main Street RagIt’s not available on-line, but here’s an excerpt:

“Each story is an exercise in high adventure. Cessna prop planes, dugout canoes, rattletrap sports cars, and hipped-out VW vans transport characters across America to Grateful Dead concerts, and up the Amazon River in search of a new species of frog. The author’s attraction for the outdoors in inescapable, with each installment a trip to another country, or occasionally, a mind trip on LSD . . . Weed writes as a realist, never coddling his stars. Teeth are kicked out, and hearts are broken. Perhaps gritty is the optimum word to describe his treatment of behavior and consequence, where even the innocent are not insulated from the impact of their decisions, nor the decisions of unkind others. In A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing, no one is granted immunity from life . . . Provocative and memorable, this collection strikes all the right chords.”

You can see how this is a review to make an author happy. The collection just came out in paperback: click here for instructions on how to order!

New story out in Main Street Rag ghost anthology

October 12, 2016 § Leave a comment

img_newPleased to report that my story, “The Foreigner,” is about to appear in a new anthology of ghost stories and poems. The story is set in my one-time home city of Granada, Spain, where an amateur photographer’s increasingly uncanny encounters with locals lead him to a difficult pass. The anthology, titled Polterguests, is available for pre-order from Main Street Rag Press.

“The Foreigner” will also appear in my new collection, A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing, to be published this April by Green Writers Press. The collection is also available for pre-order.
