How to Deal with Rejection (and Get Revenge) Like Edgar Allan Poe

Rejection hurts, but Edgar Allan Poe can help. Read about how the famous author faced countless rejections. "Take the Poe tip: If you find yourself rejected and humiliated, then adopt a fake name and flee town, ideally under cover of night."

“She has always liked boxes—the neatness of their borders, how they can be closed then opened then closed again. Her body is not so neat.” #ICYMI Michelle Ross’s short story “Dendrochronology” interrogates the boundaries of monstrosity from the limited perspective of an unnamed narrator who has shut herself in a house in the woods at the instruction of her father. You can read the rest on Scoundrel Time. Ross’s new collection “Shapeshifting,” winner of the Stillhouse Press 2020 Short Fiction Prize, was published earlier this month. Congratulations, Michelle!
Congratulations to Scoundrel Time contributor Michelle Ross, whose collection “Shapeshifting” won the Stillhouse Press 2020 Short Fiction Prize! Ross’s short story “Dendrochronology” is available to read on Scoundrel Time. “Through the peephole she studies the wolf’s fluffy face, notices the urge she feels to reach out and pet that thick, soft fur. Would she be able to comb her fingers all the way through to the skin, to the pores? Would the wolf’s skin feel sweaty, like her own?” Read the rest here: https://scoundreltime.com/dendrochronology/ And order your own copy of “Shapeshifting,” out today from Stillhouse Press, here: https://www.stillhousepress.org/stillhouse-store/shapeshifting-stories-presale
