We destroy the beauty of the countryside because the un-appropriated splendors of nature have no economic value. We are capable of shutting off the sun and the stars because they do not pay a dividend. — John Maynard Keynes
New story up
One of my Venezuelan stories, "Stairways," and many other good things to read (one really spooky story, another set in rural India, plus poetry and reviews) are now up at Small Spiral Notebook. I'm very pleased to be in such good company and in such a handsomely produced journal.
