The Opiate Literary Magazine

The Opiate Magazine of Paris and NYC published my tale "When the Phone Rang," about a prisoner of war during the times between wars. The story takes on issues of rendition, torture, erroneous incarceration, hate, prejudice, and pain... just a few things that've been on my mind.

"When the Phone Rang" originally appeared in my short story collection Fiercer Monsters published by Nomadic Press of Oakland, CA a few years ago. It is my belief that not enough people have seen the story.

I read it to an amazing audience live for the book launch with music provided by John and Jon from No Lovely Thing. We had a great time. We were outdoors in a huge backyard with a bonfire and fairy lights everywhere. I'd love to do that again! Let's see if we can make that work.


Read the story, read the whole issue here because it is superb.
