STORYGLOSSIA 28 is live today. It is a special crime/noir issue guest edited by Anthony Neil Smith. Please check out my story THE CIGARETTE STORY and another, THE HUMMING written by Dogzplot contributor and friend Heather Fowler.
While you're there check out other great stories by Vicki Hendricks, Seth Harwood, Greg Bardsley, and others.
"These are the stories that reached inside and really held on. They were determined to be in this issue. And I can't help but oblige them. Maybe they won't be your cup of tea regardless of what side of the literary fence you're sitting on. But I've got no problem walking that fence like a tightrope, ready and willing to fall off over and over again before hopping right back up and tightwalking some more. It's exhilarating, hovering above it all, but not afraid to get your hands dirty when the time comes."
