Red Hand

1857-12-Lt-Geo-S-James-NPS_lrg

Last week, I read part of a short story at a reading held at the Magpie Taproom in Toronto, for the University of Guelph MFA in Creative Writing. The story was too long to read in its entirety and I thought people might want to find out how it ends.

You can read the story right off this blog by clicking on the cover image above, but the formatting sucks. If you want to download a digital version for your e-reader, you can get it at Amazon. The e-version costs 99¢. You can get that file here.

Thanks to Catherine Bush and the other U of Guelphians at the Magpie last week.

Red Hand was written in 1998-99, and was cut from my story collection Fidelity by a queamish editor. It’s never been published, until now.  I hope you enjoy it.
