Flash fiction story published in Bartleby Snopes

My flash fiction story, “What is this?” (Kore wa nan desu-ka?) was published in the online e-zine Bartleby Snopes today.

The genesis for this story is based on my experience teaching in Hamamatsu, Japan in 1989 and also learning Japanese. One day I was thinking about how much Japanese I still remember and out of the blue, I said, “Kore wa nan desu-ka.” The story wrote itself.

You’ve got to love and appreciate a literary magazine based on two characters in American literature by two giants of American literature Herman Melville and William Faulkner.

I certainly do and I certainly appreciate my story being chosen as one of the eight stories in the August edition.

I hope you enjoy this story as well as the other stories.
