Thursday Nights with Edgar

I’ve a lot of affection for this story. One of my most unlikeable characters is shattered by one of the world’s most infectious songs.

Not long ago I wrote this story off as unpublishable because it quoted song lyrics but I thought I’d try revising it, only mentioning the title of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and simply alluding to the lyrics. I was hopeful this would bring new life to a story first drafted almost twenty-one years earlier.

After only two rejections in 2018, the kind folks at Foliate Oak Literary Magazine jumped at the chance to publish it.
