Update: My prickly story about the conflation of business, big church and politics appears on SickLit Magazine today, May 15.
This is a reprint of the story which first appeared on another of my favourite literary journals, Literally Stories.
This is what SickLit Senior Editor Nicole Ford Thomas had to say about it:
“I really like “The Business of Saving Souls,” as it seems at first like a warm and fuzzy church parable about doing good, but down deep, it’s a lesson about standing up to corruption–all corruption–and fighting to take care of each other.”
SickLit recently ran a reprint of another of my stories, “The Rothmans Job”, which first appeared on the vibrant Canadian literature site, CommuterLit. I have a total of seven stories on CommuterLit and another five on Literally Stories. Thanks to the editors of all of these exceptional online literary journals!
I hope you enjoy the pieces and welcome your comments.
Special thanks to the editors at SickLit. They are awesome sauce. (Or, “hosanna!” as they’d read responsively at the NTCCF.)
