I’m Notable! Best American Short Stories AND Nonrequired Reading Notable!

My story “Last Dog” that appeared in Hunger Mountain no. 16 has been listed as notable in Best American Short Stories 2012 AND Best American Nonrequired Reading 2012! Seeing my name beside authors like T.C. Boyle, Amy Bloom and Tom Bissell is just about the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me. Understatement: I’m pretty elated. Extreme gratitude to Miciah Bay Gault and the editors at Hunger Mountain for liking it enough to publish, and to Heidi Pitlor/Tom Perrotta/Best American Short Stories and Dave Eggers/the late Ray Bradbury/Best American Nonrequired Reading for reading it and finding it notable. These are great honors, indeed. (Understatement #2.)

You can read “Last Dog” online at Hunger Mountain here, and then you can pre-order yourself a copy of BASS 2012 and BANR 2012, read all the fantastic fiction, and take a gander at my name in the back. Attention world: I have arrived. Or I’m at least on my way.
