It must be a couple of years since my short story publications overtook my
academic credits and, as of the end of last month, my blog publication count has finally surpassed my tally of published short stories. With a tentative commitment to do a blog post for each publication, it's a watershed moment: the stories are never going to catch up. As for academia, I'll be grateful to have my name tagged on the end of a couple of forthcoming papers, but that time's in the past.
So I'm especially pleased to announce my newest short story publication, A Dress for the Address, about an academic not quite getting it together to set off for a conference. Many thanks to the folks at Halfway Down The Stairs for selecting it for their issue on Beauty.
