My short story, Fade Out is up at Nikki Finke’s Hollywood Dementia (this is not a kid friendly story). This is a site that has all kinds of great fiction about the town everyone loves to hate even though they wouldn’t mind being a Star someday.
The story is about an actor who one day realizes that they are, literally, fading away.
I write a lot of prose and sometimes stories have a life of their own and they don’t always fit in the kids market. It’s nice to write different types of material and I love short stories.
But there are not a lot of markets for short stories unless you’re already running in the New Yorker regularly. So I’m happy that my story, Fade Out found a home.
It’s a a dark-and-twisted and hopefully funny look at being an actor. It’s not kid friendly, but should resonate with anyone who works in the arts.
