My short stories always seem to go on too long and become novels, ha! And while I’ve had short fiction published in small venues, I’ve never managed to land one in a major Canadian literary magazine. Imagine my pleasure when Belle’s Boys found its way into Grain Literary Magazine. Thank you to Fiction Editor, Lisa Bird-Wilson for selecting the story and offering sage advice on the ending. And to all those who make Grain happen, Cheers!
