review of “Stories of the Things That Had No Power of Their Own”

A review of my story in the current (just released) issue of Unsaid appears here, on the Emerging Writer’s Network. Dan Wickett and Unsaid editor David McLendon say some nice things.

“Hampton breaks me in places I believed I no longer contained.”

(Being called by only my last name reminds me of a rock-climbing guide/guru I had once. He’d stand above on the top of the climb and yell, Hampton! What the hell are you doing down there? Your legs are shaking like Elvis.)

I think I’m going to be in Brooklyn for the Unsaid release reading on June 15th. It’ll be at KGB. It will be my first reading since I won the DARE essay contest in 5th grade. Come see me look nervous.
