The Lost Fedora

Just a brief post.

Looking for an update on The Lost Fedora?

Cover for the anthology

The Santa Barbara Literary Journal’s anthology The Fifth Fedora dropped on September 14th. You can find it at the SB Literary Journal’s online Bookstore, or on Amazon. I’m truly humbled to be included among this community of authors to honor our friend, Stephen T. Vessels.

Life provides us two families, the one you’re born into, and the one you gather along the way. We lost my brother Stephen all too soon to cancer last year.

The Lost Fedora was inspired by Stephen, and was a lot of fun to write. I think he would have enjoyed it as much as I did writing it.

If you’ve not read any of Stephen’s work. His story, The Ki Trees, proceeds mine in the collection. I think it is one of his best pieces.

My thanks to Jack Eidt, Maryanne Knight, and Silver Webb for including me among this company honoring Stephen.
