Thanks to Akashic Books for publishing my short story Birds of Prey
Here’s a photo of a Red-tailed Hawk I took to celebrate a bird of prey.
Available at the publisher’s website Pski’s Porch or directly from Amazon.
“The waters have quickened with darkness. The fox continues to fall apart; also, you were right: I should never have kept company with the crow. A parliament of Great-Horned Owls caught him cheating in a 7-card stud marathon; they tore off his left wing behind the butterfly farmer’s towering vivarium.
Can you imagine? Me underneath a lowering moon, threading a pine needle with a spider web, wondering where I went wrong? I tried like hell to sew the jack of diamonds to the crow’s body for a makeshift wing, but my efforts were futile.”
