"So many people can now write competent stories that the short story is in danger of dying of competence" -- Flannery O'Connor

Nobody's going to ever accuse ME of being competent, no matter how much their name resembles a Mexican dessert.

As you've probably guessed from that picture over there, another edition of Some ____ Stories is available.

This one's theme is concrete stories, which is sort of a take-off on concrete poetry, which is a style of poetry in which the words are arranged on the page in pictures, or other symbols that help add meaning to the poem.

These are among the most original and most challenging short stories I've ever written, although "short" is something of a misnomer for the final one -- that's Staircase Elevator Rope and it's about 60 pages.

Plus there's all three sections of q+u, a love story, and great stories like Origami, or The Wary Dance, a fable about how the planets ended up the way they did.  A fable! I wrote a fable!
