Rabid Transit #5

At long last, here’s the TOC for Rabid Transit #5 (as-yet untitled), in no particular order:

“The Mom Walk: A Story in Five Stories” by Alice Kim
“My Whole World Lies Waiting” by F. Brett Cox
“Mountain, Man” by Heather Shaw
“Shackles” by Dave Schwartz
“The Ghost Line” by Meghan McCarron
“Release the Bats” by Geoffrey H. Goodwin

We’re thrilled about this sextet of stories, which all hang together and speak to each other in weird ways that we’re not able to pin down. Look for this at Wiscon!

    Rabid Transit 5: Teh Awesome.

    It’s got a ring to it.

    I second mister schwartz re: the title

    Me three, chiming in with what a lovely list of writers that is. (Except for me. I’m a hack.)

    By the way, hi everyone — especially David. I’m Geoffrey. I write for Bookslut and I’m 95.2% certain that we met when Gavin and I read in Chicago, many moons ago. I hope you remember what a fan of your work I am.

    Geoffrey, right back at you! Yeah, I remember it well; that was during the Perpetual Motion Roadshow. That story you read there blew me away. I was psyched to see your name in the TOC — can’t wait to read your story!

    I, also, am delighted to be in such fine company. Greatly looking forward to the issue.

    I made the comment in David’s blog, but it seemed worth snarching:

    Three of us, and the spouse of another, were in LCRW #13. The other two are recent Clarionites, I think — so all they have to do is invent time travel, go back and be in LCRW #13 too.

    Or something.

    Either way, it’s a virus we should replicate, diametrically opposed to the virii we shouldn’t.
