Shotgun Honey has been publishing some first-rate fiction since it burst onto the scene a couple of months ago. I'm honored to now have one of my own stories hosted there. "Gun Manta" is probably one of the quickest and easiest bits of fiction I've ever written; hopefully, it doesn't show. I have a love/hate relationship with flash. It's not my favorite format--at all. But I'm very proud of this story and I don't think it'll be the last appearance of the unnamed Inspector with the tattoo of Ganesha on his hand.
My Shane Stevens piece is undergoing edits and running into some hang-ups. As it stands now, the piece clocks in at 33k. Not exactly a size condusive to easy printing. With the extraordinary help of Matthew Funk, we've cut it done to a one issue version at just a little over 5K. It works (which I attribute to Funkster's skill), but it's fucking painful to look at. Really fucking painful. So, I'm not sure what the final form will be, but for those who are interested, I plan on keeping you posted. Meanwhile, my internal debate on whether or not to start a Shane Stevens Facebook group continues.
