New story “Ain’t Living Long Like This” at Akashic Books

Delighted to have my story “Ain’t Living Long Like This” up at Akashic Books as part of their Mondays are Murder series:

They sat in silence for another quarter of an hour until he heard the clunk of a beat-up blue pickup with a busted axel as it arrived from the east. He sank down in his seat and watched as the truck pulled into the parking lot, past the stationary semis and into a parking space next to the small gas station. He watched as a birch-skinny man crawled out of the driver’s side. He was wearing black jeans, black boots, and no shirt.

I’m honored that this piece was able to find a home at the wonderful Akashic, a press I admire greatly. Thanks to all.
