Short Story "Angels in the Architecture" in Cleaver Magazine

December 4, 2018

Cleaver Magazine, a Philadelphia-based literary magazine, has published my short story, "Angels in the Architecture." This is the  badass cover art for the issue #24. Here is a link to the story: Angels in the Architecture.


It was really good working with Cleaver. They are pros and they have a nice eye. It was especially good working with editor Miriam Camitta. I feel like I made a friend and I don't usually make friends. Not because I'm nasty or anything, but because I'm an introvert and I need 1/25 of the friends most people seem to need. 


This story about an old man on his deathbed, has been brewing in my mind since before I was a writer. I wrote it in my head in the 1990s while working as a nursing assistant in Cambridge, MA. Something about the way the winter light dimming into darkness during a shift stayed with me. Sometimes patients who were close to death talked to me about seeing things in their rooms, and after my own near-death experience in 2015, a thing clicked and I got this story down properly. I am unwilling to believe that my character Jacob's experience can't happen. Anyway, I hope you like the story. Let me know what you think.
