New Fiction: “Blue Plate Special” in Barrelhouse

The D.C.-based literary journal Barrelhouse has recently published its special “Crime Issue,” including my story “Blue Plate Special” and a story by my wife, Tara Laskowski, too; hers, “The Etiquette of Homicide,” actually appears online in an annotated version as well. A special section on Small Town Noir includes several fine writers: Stewart O’Nan, Randall Brown, Stephen Graham Jones, Brian Evenson, and others.
