"Rorschark Attack" in Best of the Web contest

This week I was notified by Casey Quinn of the Short Story Library that their e-zine has nominated my story, "Rorschark Attack," to Dzanc Books’ Best of the Web contest. If it places, it will be published in their Best of the Web anthology for 2009. Short Story Library had only three submissions available to them out of the hundreds of pieces they've published this year. I'm honored to have my bit of absurdism chosen.

If you haven't read "Rorschark Attack," it's about a shark that everyone sees as anything but a shark. You can still see it on their site here:


  1. Awesome! One of my favorites of I mentioned awhile back on your Author Spotlight I featured. I must be psychic...

  2. Apparently you picked the good one, Angel! Thank you both. This is some really cool news.

  3. Congratulations, man. Big news.

  4. I hadn't read this one of yours, John.

    The whole thing from beginning to finish is fantastic.

    I'm so excited for you!
