We’re very excited here at Jumbelbook to feature our first pair of contemporary short stories!
Recently we’ve opened to submissions of fiction and non-fiction, and lo and behold these two pieces on the subject of Crushes landed in our collective inboxes.
The first is Astro Song by Scott Bassis. Scott Bassis is a young writer eager to establish himself as a serious talent. He has had short stories published in the literary magazines Poydras Review, The Acentos Review, The Missing Slate, Quail Bell Magazine, Fiction on the Web, Rainbow Curve and Harrington Gay Men’s Literary Quarterly.
The second is Sipapu by Shaun Polakow. Shaun Polakow is a fantasy fiction writer moonlighting as a TV producer with 12 years experience on network and cable shows. His comic book, Hunting Lyons, was published in Alterna Comic’s 2016 IF Anthology. Shaun lives in LA, reps Hufflepuff, and could learn a new language in the time he spends on Fantasy Football. More of his writing can be found at Sanguine Tales
Hope you enjoy!
