Big Muddy Makedonija

The story "Makedonija" was just published in the spring 2007 issue of Big Muddy, a journal from the Southeast Missouri State University Press.

I got no father, I got no mother,
Father to scorn me,
Mother to mourn me,
My father – the mountain.
My mother – the shotgun.
Lay me, my Voivode,
Down in the black earth.
I want, my Voivode,
To die for Freedom.
For Freedom, my Voivode,
For Makedonija.

Just want to say what a great blog you got here!
I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

Thumbs up, and keep it going!

Thank you for the kind words. Sadly, there isn't much in this blog. I'd much rather try to work on a story than on a blog entry if I have the extra time. Hopefully there will be more to write about in the future, now that I might be getting closer to a finished manuscript for a story collection. Best wishes...
