Happy New Year

Happy 2011! I’ve got a story, “Slowed Time, Normal Time,” in the current issue (8) of the Kartika Review. Asianness, filmmaking, and origami are involved. Thanks to Christine Lee Zilka and Sunny Woan.

Here’s an excerpt:

“Once, she’d spent the entire day making an armchair, and when I returned from school and tested it, it didn’t even collapse as paper should. She seemed to have an almost magical talent.”

In other news, Christopher Newgent has some nice words to say about Our Island of Epidemics at vouched.com. Our Island is still on sale at PANK for $6.
