Here are two of my stories as they appear in a Texas literary journal

After being promised a free contributors' copy of the magazine in which two of my stories were to appear, the publishers notified the contributors that there would be no free copies, and that all copies would cost $25 + $5 shipping. In the legal world, this is called a "bait and switch." And it's against the law. So, I withdrew my stories from the magazine, and even though the publishers said they were going to press the very next day, they complied. I wondered how they were able to do that. Now, I see how.

Here's a link to one of the contraband stories, if you're interested.
