I’m still waiting for the first wave of reviews for EMPTY ROOMS LONELY COUNTRIES to come in. Here is a small review of my story “Mad Dogs”, published in Issue 1 of GUD Magazine, and available in ERLC:
Let me just mention one final contribution: towards the end of the magazine is Mad Dogs by Christian A. Dumais, the only piece labelled as non-fiction. Dumais is an American teaching at a university in Poland; this piece chronicles his night out drinking with some visiting Secret Service and Air Force Two staff, a night which ends with him sitting in the apartment of two Polish lesbians. You’ll have to read the essay to find out how he gets there; but what’s great about this piece is that it makes real life seem just as strange as the fictional realities depicted in the rest of the magazine.
