Bewildering Stories welcomes...
Shaun lives with his family in southeastern Pennsylvania, where he is a professor of English. He has published fiction elsewhere on the Net before discovering Bewildering Stories.
“Mrs. Carmichael’s Best” unfolds with the inexorable implacability of a Greek tragedy spiced with doses of irony. The reader knows what’s coming, and it does no good to scream mentally at the characters, “Don’t eat those pies!” You know they will. The only thing left to learn is what the payoff is for Mrs. Carmichael — or any terrorist. Fifteen years ago, the story might have seemed outlandish; today it is entirely too realistic for comfort.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Shaun. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
