It’s been a little while since I’ve had any external publication news. My short story “Conductive and Flammable” has just come out in the latest issue of takahē.
Recently widowed, Beth’s dealing with a teenage son, a complicated estate and a neighbour who’s constantly burning stinky garden waste right at her back fence.
takahē has an enduring history in New Zealand literature (as you see, it’s up to issue 85) and I’m honored to be published there again. Thanks to fiction editor Karen Zelas for taking my story.

Hey, congratulations, Sean! Bravo! I’m sure there are many more to come, but it’s always exciting to have your work recognized.
On a different note, that neighbor sounds like a PITA. Ugh.
Corrected “whose” to “who’s”. Sheesh. Must remember to double-proofread my own posts.
I, myself, find I often do my best proofreading just after clicking “Publish.”
