UPCOMING: In The Lit Lab with Alan Stewart Carl

I've thought it could be interesting to have an occasional post here called The Lit Lab where a writer will lay out his or her story on the cutting board and peel back the layers for us.

The first of these will be posted Monday as Alan Stewart Carl puts his story "What Our Fathers Knew" under the knife. The story was published at BULL: Fiction for Thinking Men and caught my eye, along with many others. If you've not read it, I would happily suggest doing so.

I look forward to sharing Alan's thoughts about it here and hope those who can will drop by for a visit Monday.


  1. I love this idea! Looking forward to it!

  2. a fine piece I'll enjoy discovering the nuance behind it..


let's talk about it

"What’s got you down?” he asked her. “Tell me the story—I’ll give it a happy ending."
