My latest publication, “In Defense of a Water-Bound Adventure, My Dearest Fran”, is now available in the Spring 2018 issue of Mad Scientist Journal.
For “In Defense”, I drew on real local history, including news articles. The sea monster article appears on page 3 (and 4) of the paper: http://nyshistoricnewsp
At this point, we locals agree that whatever it was is dead, but for a while, folks were seeing it (them?) fairly often…
This story is a follow-up to “On the Methods of Preserving and Dissecting Icthyo Sapiens”, which they published in November 2013. You don’t have to read them in order, but I like how they work together to give you a fuller picture of my “mad scientist” narrator, and I am so glad my editors there snatched up this new story as soon as I submitted it.
Update: You can read just my story, online here. If you like it, please leave a comment on the magazine’s site so they know 🙂
