Author Showcase: Hall Jameson

Today we bring you Hall Jameson, a writer from Montana and author of “The Tricky Composition”.

Here’s an excerpt from her brilliant Post-Experimental story:

Walter knew he needed to descend. He had to climb over the notes one by one, balanced on the plucky wire of the staff. The sounds plunking away in the distance had grown louder, and the notes below him started to jump and tremble. A flash of red parted the music like a curtain, and for a moment, Walter saw a man, a creature, looking up at him from far below. The figure crouched and slunk away into the distant measures.

            “Walter?” His wife’s voice drifted up, a silk scarf caught by the breeze, followed by a screech from the bell of a French horn, trailed by a low burst from a trombone, the cranky horns warning him to stay away.

Author Showcase: Leland Neville

Today we bring you Leland Neville, author of the outstanding Post-Experimental fiction “American Outlaws”. Here’s an excerpt that will surely get you excited for the official release of the issue on October 28th:

Excerpt from “American Outlaws”

Emma believes the dearth of personal trivia in her own life is of course a blessing. Although her pre-Alex sexual encounters are vague and the men formless, Emma is certain they were pleasurable. Thanks to memory amelioration and/or attention deconcentration, her sexual fantasies are healthy and she does not exhibit any reluctance or fear with Alex. There is no reason to resist her destiny just because the government might be poking around inside her brain. If she can channel Marilyn, well, isn’t that a gift worth exploiting? Her role in this latest production is not confined to that of an extra, a supernumerary, in an inanely forgettable scene. This is Emma’s breakout role, her Niagara . Emma is in the throes of continuity. Emma has detected a transformation in recent autobiographical memories and is intrigued by the accumulation of detail since meeting Alex almost two or three months ago.

Leland Neville
