Look, Out Now!
Yesterday, in honor of just learning that May is Short Story month, I spoke about “Remember Me,” my newest digital publication.
This story was originally published in the anthology “Obsession” by Static Movement Press. However, this isn’t the anthology I wrote the story for. Back in late 2010, I came across a call for submissions for a horror anthology based on the holidays. To increase my odds of getting accepted, I steered away from the major holidays, and found that two smaller ‘holidays’ fell on the same day in 2011. Spawning from that is the most culturally insensitive, black humor, horror story I’ve ever written. The editors from that antho passed on the story, and rightly so. However, and surprisingly, the editors at Static Movement Press, jumped all over it for their anthology based on (as the title would suggest) obsessions.
I never thought this story would ever see the light of day, but I’m glad it was published the same year that these ‘holidays’ fell on the same day. For better or worse, I’ll probably never write another story like this. So now’s your time to get this piece of Alex Azar history, if you weren’t able to get a copy of “Obsession” while it was available.
You can purchase the digital copy at the following link here.
P.S. I’m too proud of the grammatical pun in the title of this post for it to go unacknowledged. Punctuation matters.
