After a long layoff from here and from writing crime fiction short stories, I finally have something to report: A new short story of mine is up now at Beat to a Pulp. "A Wild and Crazy Night" tells of a recent parolee and his troubles with the generation gap.

If anything, getting this story out there finally is testament to the fact that you can find a market for your story if you wait long enough. After a couple of rejections from places that sought more blood and guts than I offered, I was happy to find the new venue of BTAP to query. And, after working with Elaine Ash there, the story is considerably better than it was when submitted.

You can find it here:

I'd love any feedback.

This is a great story, John. Had next to nothing to work with, but used his wits well. Loved this. It grabs you from the beginning and hangs on until the very end. Terrific! Joyce
