Reading and Writing in the Margins

"Ars Longa, Vita Brevis" Has Arrived

Thanks to the good folks at The Paragon Press and The Paragon Journal, "Ars Longa, Vita Brevis" is now out in the world. I've been surprised and humbled, already, by the number of friends and family who have expressed congratulations and assurances that they are purchasing and reading the thing. And yes, this makes me very nervous. It's a strange sensation after all of the work to create the story and get someone to publish it only to dread the thought of real live readers holding it in their hands. Certainly, some will dislike it, find it vulgar, find it disappointing. I suppose this is inevitable. I suppose some will reconsider their estimation of me in light of this work. All I can say is, "Here I am; take me as you will."
