“[the] Lummox, in my opinion, was one of maybe the best half dozen poetry mags in the country.  I wd rather read Lummox than any of the so-called high class high art poetry mags going.  It's got more life and more guts than any mag I know.”  - Todd Moore

In Between Altered States publishes, "No Sex Since Last Spring"

In Between Altered States, I just can't quit you. Today they published, No Sex Since Last Spring, a flash fiction of mine. It's a great issue with John Riley, John Grochalski, Dennis M. Sheehan, Bud Smith, Bruce J. Berger, Misti Rainwater-Lites, Maude Larke and myself. 

Each story muses on the subject of obligation. Mine muses on sex, anxiety, valet parking, Mitt Romney's dog   and Demetri Martin. 

Oh and September 1 is here.
