My review of "Boston Noir" is up now on Mostly Fiction. The collection was edited by Dennis Lehane and is one of Akashic Books' Noir Series. This is the link.
While we're talking Boston, will someone please begin a petition to get the "What's the Best Way?" and "The Vallencourt Boys" SNL sketches online or on DVD? "The Best Way" was the game show about directions in New England that yielded the "pass eleven Dunkin' Donuts" and "there's a retahded kid sellin' fiyahcrackahs" jokes. "Vallencourt" was Adam Sandler and Kevin Nealon as two mushes with a cable access show. Both were spot-on Boston accent parodies.

My essay, "God Was Magic," is in this week's Columbia Chronicle. You can read the whole essay online, here. Make sure to leave a comment about how I'm going to hell.
No word yet from Cell Stories about when they're running "The Bullets Were Losing," but it should be by the end of the calendar year. In the meantime, head to CellStories.net and sign up, for free. It's a service that sends a daily story to your mobile device, which they define as "Any mobile device with a WebKit-based browser; we've specifically checked iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android-based phones."
Honestly, that's a little bit over my head, but I'm not very tech-savvy.
