IWW Members' Publishing Successes

A long list of Yahoos for the first of October! Please join me in congratulating the following members for their most recent publishing successes.


Mark Kline

Thanks to all on fiction who helped me with my short story, “The Clouds Shall Inherit the Earth.” It's in the spring/summer issue of Epiphany, the lit mag published out of nyu. They've put the first few pages up on their website:
they also emailed me some questions for their blog, though my answers probably don't make a lot of sense if you haven't read the story.

My essay about the powerful and little-known Committee of 25 appears in this issue of the Los Angeles Review of Books. Los Angeles Review of Books - Los Angeles: Drawn By Committee_

I had a phone call from a man who, for 13 years, has spent summers at a place he bought on the East Fork of Bull River, Sanders County, Montana ~~ the area my Behind These Mountains Vols. 1, 2 & 3 regional Montana history record. He was ecstatic about finding my books online -- and of course wanted to know where he could buy a set of books! He ended by inviting us to visit the next time were in the area. Since I published those out-of-print books online in 2011 I've been getting more calls asking for print copies. Perhaps after the e-Editions are a reality, too, enough interest will warrant the effort of a POD version. Everyone who critted my e-edition chapter subs deserve a share in this Yahoo. Because of your generous help and encouragement, the books will again become available.

I've published, The Dragon's Call, on Amazon, This story was extensively critted by members on the list. Thanks so much to all of you who helped with this project! And if anyone who read the story left a review, I'd be grateful for that as well :)

One Forty Fiction ran my flash story “Secrets” on 9/2/12.
I am a little behind on reading my emails, so I had missed it. If you don't want to follow the link here it is: Secrets” They said Larry was a “funny uncle.” I didn’t understand. One night he slipped into my room. What he did wasn’t funny. Not funny at all.
