If I'm not mistaken, yesterday marked the release of CENTRAL PARK: an anthology. Edited by Andrew Blauner, the collection contains pieces by Colson Whitehead, Paul Auster, Francine Prose, Jonathan Safran Foer, and a bunch of other fine writers. There's one by me as well, entitled "Beastie," excerpted from a much longer story by the same name that I wrote a few years back. In recognition, I include here a number of illustrations I drew for that complete version.
(And here are some places to purchase: Amazon. B&N. IndieBound.)
(Also, if you'd like to read the poem that inspired Beastie, it can be found over at brookshansen.com.)
