Congratulations to CJ Ullrich, our Law Library Stack Manager, who has just had a short story published. The story is entitled “The Collector” and was co-authored by Paul McComas. The publisher is http://walkaboutpublishing.blogspot.com/
CJ’s work has earned high praised from acclaimed co-author McComas who writes:
C.J. has studied fiction writing with me for four weeks through Lawrence University’s Bjorklunden adult-ed program in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin, and for one term (Summer 2010) through UW-Madison’s Minicourse Program. It was in the latter venue that this talented young writer (whose gorgeous, elegiac story “The Call of the Mourning Dove” I’d included in my 2007 anthology Further Persons Imperfect) began developing the story you’re about to read . . .
. . . That is, if you dare. Fair warning: “The Collector” is, appropriately, the single most disturbing piece in “the collection.” It was a hard piece to co-author, simply because it took me to such a dark place–a place where I wasn’t sure it was safe to be.
