my story "Who are the Fantasy Girls?" was just published in the 15th anniversary issue of BlazeVOX.
"She kept chanting it over and over again, like an incantation that would take her far from there: stripped bare and new. She could walk into another light that would transport her into the space of her memories. Where God would turn the telescope around, and look at her, down there, locked deep in a circle of hell. He’d realize she wasn’t ready; she was too young to be buried, and his hand would break through the sky, the trees, that apartment building, and pluck her up easily, tell her the things she needed to know to keep going."
