Dead Americans (More Fiction Sold)

Shadowed Realms has purchased my little story 'Johnny Cash (a tale in questionnaire results)' for their quite gorgeous ezine.

This story is another in my trend of referencing public figures who are dead and American, either in the title, in the story, or by having them as characters. I've been calling these pieces my Dead American Stories simply because it amuses me. Should I write enough of them to have a collection, I'll call it Dead Americans and have the cover made from the images of celebrity grave stones (that have hopefully been defaced and worn away by time).

It's a reason to visit the States and deface the graves of icons for kicks, okay. Like you all haven't thought of it.

A short story publication seems fairly tame after the novel news, you know.

(But, congratulations, hey? :) )

I thought of it more as a quip than a point, but hey.

"Dead Americans" sounds cool, too.

And with the CIA.

Did you ever get a response to your "Kill George Bush" thing? I was thinking about it the other day.

now, now, you know the CIA can't read. it's the only explanation for so much.

i didn't get any response for that. no one did it, no one cared. hardly surprising. i'd forgotten all about it, really.
