Thanks to the Santa Fe Writers Project for publishing my story “Orientation” in the debut issue of the new SFWP Quarterly. This is a different kind of story for me—part of a now-on-hold novel/novella in stories set around a fictionalized version of my old boarding school. There’s no crime in this piece, but a very violent crime in the fuller story, and I hope to return to working on that larger project at some point.
The full issue also features fiction by June Sylvester Saraceno; nonfiction by Jessica Handler and Randon Billings Noble; two interviews conducted by K.E. Semmel; and a “cultural rant”—”My Little Apocalypse: The Post-Apocalypse Genre in Literature”—by Andrew Gifford.
