In our second round of stories this month, we are pleased and proud to welcome Lindsay Milburn and Debra S. Levy to the Little Fiction family. Speaking of which, family is front and center in both stories, as they look at how easily our bonds can come apart, and how the little things can keep us together. But that’s just the beginning of what these stories have in common.

There’s also death. In MEMORIAL KEEPSAKES (by Lindsay), an ex-husband and wife, and a house fly along for the ride, are momentarily re-united over the death of a family member. 

While in AMERICAN FARE (by Debra), a prison cook struggles between making two important dinners — one for a death row inmate, and one for her newly-engaged daughter.

And then, there’s Wheel of Fortune. Mentioned in both stories, which is just awesome.

three years 
of little fiction
Paul Carlucci’s debut story collection, THE SECRET LIFE OF FISSION (Oberon Press), won the much heralded 2013 Danuta Gleed award for best first collection. It was a dark horse for the award, but one read and you can see how deserving it is of the attention. Paul took a few moments to talk to us about winning the award, what’s coming up next for him, and what he loves about reading and writing short stories.

It hopefully goes without saying, but we’re super proud of all the work we publish, and it’s never easy picking the stories and essays to put forward for awards. But we can’t enter them all. So, after a lot of careful thought and a little bit of debate, these are the two fiction and two non-fiction pieces we have chosen to nominate for the Sundress Publications Best of the Net awards:
THE CLINIC by Lindsay Wells »
APARTMENT HUNTING IN THREE ACTS by Jules Archer »
PRETEND WE FELL ASLEEP by Jessica Hendry Nelson »
THE GREY GOOSE AND WILD TURKEY YEARS by Emily Walker »

Good luck to Lindsay, Jules, Jessica, and Emily!Lindsay_Wells_TheClinic.htmlJules_Archer_ApartmentHunting.htmlBigTruths_JessicaNelson.htmlBigTruths_EmilyWalker.htmlshapeimage_32_link_0shapeimage_32_link_1shapeimage_32_link_2shapeimage_32_link_3
BEST OF THE NET NOMINATIONS
Shawn Syms is a man of many writerly talents — he’s a fantastic book reviewer, an amazing editor, and one hell of a writer. And we’ve been fortunate to publish him twice. First, way back in our early days with his story The Exchange, and more recently with Snap. Both stories can be found in his critically acclaimed debut story collection, NOTHING LOOKS FAMILIAR (Arsenal Pulp Press).

We asked Shawn if he would put together a playlist for the collection—turns out he’s pretty awesome at that, too. So here it is, a story-by-story soundtrack for NOTHING LOOKS FAMILIAR. Enjoy.
