Acceptance: Bull!

Thanks to the fine menfolk at Bull: Men's Fiction for accepting my short story "Trans-Neptunian Bodies." All of my stories are important to me, but this one holds a special place in my innards, so I'm glad it's found a home at Bull. I met a couple of the editors at the AWP conference in Chicago last year, super nice guys. Makes it mean all that much more.

A few friends have expressed puzzlement (and possibly disdain) at the concept of "men's fiction." I'll say this much: it's not about bachelor parties, strip clubs, fantasy football, or lady-bashing. These stories for men are, among other things, meditations on fatherhood/sonhood, journeys into wilderness, expressions of fear, longing, hope, and despair. Think of "The Road." Yes, it's full of horror, but is essentially (if my sources can be trusted) a love letter from Cormac McCarthy to his son. Bull is full of good writing that also fits into a million other cateogries. It's not about exclusion, it's about inclusion. Possibly re-inclusion. To quote Bull's site: "Major publishers say men don't read fiction. We say Bull."

I'll post a link to the piece when available.
