I’m thrilled to be back in the saddle over at the Flash Fiction Offensive with a nasty little tale called “They’ll Call Me Whistlin’ Pete.” My latest piece of “western noir” went live last Friday and remains the featured story for the duration while they go through some minor transitions. If you haven’t had a chance yet, mosey on over and check it out:
David Barber does a hell of a job as editor there, and I’m very grateful that my stories can find homes at his wonderful publication.
For those of you who keeping score at home, this is the second story to see light of day from my forthcoming Tales of Perseverance collection. A series of interlinked western noir tales set in and around Perseverance, Oregon, in the 1880’s. Founded at the end of a wrong turn off the Oregon Trail, Perseverance is in the words of one resident, “A town named after the dubious virtue of steadfastly moving in the wrong direction.”
Watch for more Tales of Perseverance in the coming weeks and months!
