Thank you to Club Plum Literary Journal for including my story “Greyhound” in their current issue.
Like the character in the story, I logged many miles on buses, assuming I could afford the ticket, especially when it was too cold or wet to hitchhike. As much as I love Jack Kerouac, I always seemed to have less money than Sal Paradise.
The link below includes a soundtrack from Calpurnia, also entitled “Greyhound.” Very cool.
Thank you to Brett Pribble and Ghost Parachute for publishing my flash fiction story. I love the illustration by Paulaidan Minerva.

Below is a sneak preview:
In the first magnetic lines of The White Field by Douglas Cole, the narrator Tom enters a surreal purgatory: “I walked into the sun. It seared the road and the rooftops, intense, blinding.” For Tom, the bright heat greets his release from prison, but not as a mere celebration of freedom….
Friends on the road in western Kansas, Pearl waiting for her turn to drive. Look closely and you’ll see a cat’s head nestled under Pearl’s nose.
Curt agrees to try a spiedi, the local Binghamton delicacy, but he faces a more portentous decision.
Thank you @TheFictionPool!
