SO IT GOES to include “The Fountain of Relative Youth”

SO IT GOES, coming Spring 2013 from PMMP.

SO IT GOES coming Spring 2013 from PMMP.

Nothing like starting the year off with an acceptance. Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing has accepted my short story, “The Fountain of Relative Youth” for their upcoming anthology: SO IT GOES: A TRIBUTE TO KURT VONNEGUT.

The volume will blend satire, gallows humor, and science fiction in the tradition of Vonnegut works such as CAT’S CRADLE (1963), SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE (1969), and BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS (1973).

As PMMP says: “He was a man who pushed his imagination off a cliff and followed it for the whole drop; a man who was able to write the most cynical material, yet make you die of laughter at the same time.”

“The Fountain of Relative Youth” is not just a humor story–it’s a story written in the Vonnegut tradition. If you’re a fan of his, you’ll know what I mean, and hopefully, you’ll agree with me about “Fountain’s” merits, because after all, who am I, alone, to judge?

SO IT GOES: A TRIBUTE TO KURT VONNEGUT is expected this spring.
