Why I Love Reading

The new issue of SmokeLong Quarterly is live. I've only read two stories from it so far, but both of them are amazing.

If you want to feel a little crushed and weepy, head over to Dan Chaon's "The Hobblers."

If the story all by itself doesn't do you in, then read the interview.

And then, to recover, read Amanda Nazario's "Matt: How It Will Happen."

It'll make you laugh a little and then it'll bring the hammer right back down.

Still, you'll be glad for it. Just like always.
