Bricks and Sunlight

My short story "Bricks and Sunlight" is now out in Volume 3 of Suddenly Lost in Words.  Over Memorial Day weekend, on the 26th and 27th, the issue will be available for free on Amazon, here.

I've been chewing over the ideas in "Bricks and Sunlight" for a long time, but the ideas only recently grew into a story.  I hope you enjoy!

GSW & Review

My newest post, "Rockets and Leaf-Mould" is up over at Gem State Writers, here.

I was also happy to read this great review of my novelette, "The Temple's Posthole" up at Tanget.  This is, I think, my best story to date.  It's always nice to see people enjoy something I wrote, but I especially enjoyed this review because they enjoyed something I did on purpose.  You can read the whole review, but here's the excerpt that made me smile:

But what I love the most is that the story still centers around the characters and the mother-son relationship. I see precious few speculative fiction stories where characters younger than preteen play an important role, so it is delightful to see a narrative that not only has a strong supporting child character, but also pegs his age perfectly with age-appropriate dialogue and action....Even if you are not a parent, you will still find plenty to appreciate in Hutchin's dramatic first person narrative.
