Dead Boy Found

A few people have written me in recent days, wondering about the short story that eventually became my first novel, One for Sorrow, I’ve posted the story under a Creative Commons license on this website for the curious.  The story originally appeared in Kelly Link’s Trampoline, which is still one of my favorite anthologies to read through four years later.  If you haven’t read it before, you should order it and check out the many great stories Kelly collected for that anthology.  You can find “Dead Boy Found” by clicking on its title on the sidebar, and there’s also a link on the One for Sorrow page as well.  Happy reading!

    I loved Kelly Link’s “Stone Animals”; I will check out the anthology, thank you for recommending it.

    And I thoroughly enjoyed this story, too…I didn’t want it to end…which means I will be buying the novel. Congratulations on your debut.
