Shape of a sitting man – Joyland Publisher’s Picks of 2014


Hey humans. Just a quick post today to say that the hilarious folks at Joyland: A Hub For Short Fiction have chosen my story Shape of a sitting man as one of their favourite publications in 2014. Pretty cool move on their part, especially given all the good work they’ve put out this year.

So yeah, thanks to Brian Joseph Davis and Emily Schultz, publishers of Joyland. Who said this about my story:

“In Shape of a Sitting Man, Kevin Hardcastle is rewriting the rules of Hoser-Lit with a lean prose style and a no fuss-no muss darkness.”

Considering all I ever wanted to do was be the best in North America at writing dark Hoser-Lit, I am very proud of this comment. Anyway, click all over this line if you want to read the story, from September this year. It’s only about 2500 words and a lot of people get hurt. 

Otherwise, check out the rest of the Joyland Publisher’s Picks for 2014 by clicking on this line, and read some of the other fine work by writers from all over the US and Canada. 

That’s all for today. Might have some more news about upcoming stories, and other baffling developments, in the next couple weeks.
