New story “The Proof”

My short story “The Proof” appears in the December issue of the Canadian online magazine Origami Journal. LINK Two young professionals A and B meet at a weeknight social event. They discover they have so much in common that A = B. The event winds down as they urgently solve the new equation A + B = C.

Pierre H. Boucheron

My grandfather Pierre H. Boucheron published magazine articles and left many unpublished manuscripts. I edited some of these as articles about him. “A Businessman Aloft” which he wrote in 1939 appears today in the online magazine Across the Margin. Tomorrow, the same magazine will publish “Greenland Assignment” from his book by that title. And the next day, they will run “The Captain,” which goes from 1943 to the end of his life. He was a captain in the United States Naval Reserve.

Belmont Sketches

Three short sketches of the Belmont neighborhood are in the current issue of Gravel, gravelmag.com. They are “The Livestock Market,” “The Night Roost” and “Flowering Trees.” Other sketches of Belmont have appeared, such as “Gibson’s Grocery” in Origami Journal, origamijournal.com and “Belmont Park” in Bangalore Review, bangalorereview.com. More are on the way.
