About Me

Have edited and produced three magazines of various types; have two weblogs--'Spinning' is devoted to literature analysis and 'Hypercompendia' is new media writing and reading and a learning process of forms. Discovering new mediums of writing short stories, poetry, in traditional and hypertext form is how I hope to justify my existence.

I have poetry published in Bewildering Stories, hyperfiction in The New River Journal, and short stories in many fine literary publications. I've been honored to receive the 8th Glass Woman Prize for my story "Wanderer" in 2010.

Why do you write?

A bad mood is often the oil that burns the inspirational flame. Not so strange, perhaps, when we think that emotion drives drama and story.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Marquez, McCarthy, Faulkner, Steinbeck, Atwood, Taylor, Murakami, William Gay

Susan, thanks for commenting. I'm so glad you enjoyed the hyperrealism page. I suggested it because it had so many examples, but check out the net if you want to see more. The example at the Museum Ludwig, I swear, I thought it was real until it refused to acknowledge my "oh, pardon me". :)

Foster Trecost – Jul 07, 2011

Jack Swenson – Jun 25, 2011

Thanks, Susan, I'm glad you think I'm mellowing. There are others (ahem!) who think I'm just old & cranky. I'm afraid, however, that I have acquired a Chagall obsession. Sigh.

Roberto C. Garcia – May 23, 2011

Thank you Susan for your comments on "For Liu Xiabo". I want to spread this far and wide so that we don't forget about this man. He is a modern revolutionary for non violent change.

Jo Deurbrouck – Apr 01, 2011

Hey thanks for commenting on "Rowdy," Susan. Yes, the gap between reality and pretty wishes is exactly what I was thinking of. I guess this story is my expanded version of Hemingway's great summation line: 'Isn't it pretty to think so?" with Mal infantalizing his wife, and his wife daydreaming her way through life, and the innocents in the whole deal, the two dogs, left to face reality. My husband says it's a bad story because none of the characters are likeable. : )

Pamela J. Parker – Apr 01, 2011

Susan - thanks very much for your read and fave on "Secrets." Appreciate it!

Thanks, Susan, for commenting on "Disappearing Ink."

Brianne Baxtali – Mar 30, 2011

You know, I think that's why the Slender Man myth is so scary. It's not clear who he is or what he wants, but he's still so menacing. I wish more writers would pick the topic up. The filmmakers have had enough fun; it's our turn now.

M.H. – Mar 29, 2011

Hi Susan,

Larry Strattner – Mar 17, 2011

Thanks for your comments on Home Invasion (Johnny Dangerously) which I renamed Hello Kitty.
I will not republish with the new title to save you re-reading saying to yourself,” haven’t I already read this damn thing? Like some stupid Tom Clancy paperback in the airport where they changed the cover causing you to get halfway to St. Louis before you realize you’ve already read it.

Thanks for your dynamite comments on it's just death, so what. For me, this is one of those I'm-going-out-on-a-limb kind of a piece and your remarks cheered me greatly. Blessings. -- Q

Robert Vaughan – Dec 06, 2010

Susan,

Thanks so much for your read and comments on "The Wedding March," both at 52/250 and here. I value your input and wisdom, and our blossoming friendship, too.

Account Closed – Dec 06, 2010

Susan, thank you so much for reading 'Bigger dog' - and for the fav! Your comment means a lot to me, I've struggled to fix what seems wrong with this piece, but haven't been able to - maybe I'll move on. If you like it, I should just move on.

Thank you!

Michael J. Solender – Dec 05, 2010

Hey Susan!

Thanks so much for reading and enjoying Lost in the City. Ironically enough my gal & I spent a quick 48hrs in NYC to get some of your famous holiday buzz - Mission Accomplished. Also thrilled to have you leading off MICROW in our winter edition. I've recv'd much praise on the issue and lots of props for your work. Cheers!

Kim Conklin – Dec 05, 2010

Thanks for the very kind words and the fave on Heart Line. I hadn't thought if love as having a life cycle before, an astute observation that I'll ponder for some time.

Matt Dennison – Dec 05, 2010

Thanks for the kind comment on "Dog Medicine," Susan. It's a (re)telling of a slice of a larger true story. Car had broke down after driving west through the Rocky Mts. My friend and I camped out on that hillside while waiting for a part to arrive for our car. I thought the dog, looking as it did, was coming up the hill to kill me(!) So the relief was immense when, basically, it put me to bed, so to speak, covered me and protected me all night.

Jack Swenson – Dec 05, 2010

Susan, your comments are always so thoughtful and unique. Thanks so much for the kind words about "A Little Fishing."

Cherise Wolas – Dec 04, 2010

Susan, your comments are always wonderfully insightful. Thank you for reading Ping Pong, and Gin And A Cowboy: Redux, and for the stars on both!

Susan thanks so much for liking oasis, and for alerting me to the fact that it might actually be a prose poem (something i hadn't considered). cheers!

Thanks so very much for reading How To Burn Years and giving comment. You put me in much too fine company by comparison, though, I'm afraid. However, it is flattering. Thanks, again.

Foster Trecost – Oct 18, 2010

Hi Susan, thanks for reading and commenting on Sunrise. foster.

Angela Kubinec – Oct 15, 2010

Susan, the way you take the time to cite a specific strength in a piece is perhaps the best form of praise one writer can offer another. Thank you for reading "Swift and Precise".

Angela Kubinec – Oct 15, 2010

Susan, the way you cite specific strengths is possibly the best kind of praise one author can give another. Thanks for reading "Swift and Precise".

Susan Tepper – Oct 08, 2010

Susan G, thanks ever so much for your response to Little Peebles. Am glad to hear it falls into magical realism category--
I like that kind of writing and never tried it before. It's quite freeing

Cherise Wolas – Oct 08, 2010

Susan, as always thank you for your great comments on Redux - Things I Should Have Done #4 - since renamed Heartbreak Waiting to Happen. So glad that time period for you is over! I thought your comment about the ending was incisive, and I have honed the ending. Thank you for the close read, very much appreciated.

J. Mykell Collinz – Oct 07, 2010

Hi, Susan. Thanks for reading 'Working the City.' I greatly appreciate your comments.

Jason Lee Norman – Sep 30, 2010

Thanks for the comments today. I hope you take the time to look at some of my other stories. You could give me enough self confidence to get through the rest of the year. haha.

stephen hastings-king – Sep 29, 2010

hi again susan...i was just looking through the pieces i put up here and noticed that you commented on "she knows everything about number" which is still one of my favorite pieces, one of the few that almost makes me cry when i read it. thanks for that.

Susan, thanks for your lovely thoughtful comment on Anything Again. Much appreciated!

stephen hastings-king – Sep 23, 2010

thanks very much for the read and comment on rodeo, susan. i'm glad that some of the pathos of bill markee's situation came through. sometimes it's a problem when one starts shaving off information to shape a small piece what feels as though it ends up going away. i put a short comment about his story by the story. i likely wouldn't have were it not for your comment. so thanks.

Jack Swenson – Sep 23, 2010

Thank you, thank you, my friend. And thanks for catching the typo in my therapy story.

Larry Strattner – Sep 23, 2010

Thank you for the Fluid Life, Susan I find it hard to capture NorCal even though writing a book set here. Fluid Life has already had three edits to the post. Your words are always encouraging.
(Nice new photo BTW -)

M.H. – Sep 23, 2010

Hi Susan - Thanks so much for your generous comments on "Origin"!

Cherise Wolas – Sep 21, 2010

Susan, thank you for your great comments and the fave on Sisters At The Lake. I am so pleased the expanded version resonated with you. It is quite possible that I will continue working on that story, seeing what ultimately happens...

Bill Yarrow – Sep 21, 2010

Susan, thank you for your generous fav of "Epithalamion." I value you as a reader.

Roberto C. Garcia – Sep 21, 2010

Susan! Thanks for the read and * on Escalation. I am coming back soon to do a sweep on stories posted to the 52|250 group! Can't wait -- how I'm spending my afternoon. I love being able to read them there during the week I'm posting, then here again, with more time and care. It's a double-pleasure.

Tina Barry – Sep 19, 2010

Hi, Susan. Thanks so much for commenting on 'Falling'.

Christian Bell – Sep 16, 2010

Susan, thanks for commenting on "Firecrackers"!

Paul Hargreaves – Sep 16, 2010

It's interesting that you say that, about whether or not the ending surprises you (the writer) Left at the Tracks was largely a "gift" story that came to me all at once, give or take a few details. Geisha Doll, by contrast, was a slow slog and I really had no idea where it was all going until I got to the end of it. Anyway – good discussion.
Look forward to reading more of your work.

Paul Hargreaves – Sep 16, 2010

Hi again, Susan. Wanted to expand a bit on "doin' the twist." I have to confess that twist endings are still a drug for me, I'm afraid. I grew up on them, reading the likes of O Henry and when I dove into fiction – Left at the Tracks was my first serious stab at short fiction – I steered toward familiar terrain. But I'm in rehab now, trying to avoid the easy, intoxicating buzz of the delicious twist that I still love...

Cynthia Hawkins – Sep 15, 2010

Oh yes, and the fave too. And that's "Three Houses Down." Must have been the long day w/ a toddler! I'm forgetting my own titles ...

Cynthia Hawkins – Sep 15, 2010

Thanks so much for your lovely comments on "Third House Down," Susan! Much appreciated.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Sep 15, 2010

Roberta – Sep 13, 2010

Hi Susan,

Thanks for the comment on 'Genesis.' I think it was literal pregnancy -> birth I had in mind when writing it - not consciously anything mythological.

Siren of Brixton – Sep 13, 2010

Hi Susan, thank you for taking the time to read my story and leaving feedback. I really appreciate it as I am working hard to be a better writer and value constructive critique from other writers very highly.

Michelle Elvy – Aug 03, 2010

Susan - your "Things" is just great. I'm here updating 52|250, was not planning to stay, but this caught my eye, and now I'm here, as it happens, happily reading so much good stuff. Thanks for pulling me here tonight. Off to wander now...

Ryder Collins – Aug 02, 2010

Susan, thanks for the thoughtful and kind comments on "I know everything's broken, but still I pretend." I'm definitely thinking now about the word "cos." "Because" takes too long for me, but now I can see how "cos" might be jarring. Hmmmm.

Larry Strattner – Aug 02, 2010

Thanks for your comments on Birth of a Tiger. I'm going to work on making her a more complete person. Cheers.

Larry Strattner – Jul 28, 2010

Thanks Susan, for Girls with Guns. I have three novels in final edit. They each have a woman protagonist. I love strong women.

Bill Yarrow – Jul 28, 2010

Thanks for commenting on "Penny Arcadia," Susan. I like your focus on sensory experience. I guess you could say childhood itself is a sensory experience. Or maybe, there's no real memory without a sense memory.

Mary Lane – Jul 28, 2010

Thank you for your kind words, Susan.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Jul 28, 2010

Thanks, Susan, for your very perceptive comments about Broken Mirrors. This is part of a larger piece and the doctor's concern is brought up later. Thanks too, for the fav!

Jack Swenson – Jul 06, 2010

Oh, Susan--you are too kind to me. I'm glad you liked "Extra-curricular." Thanks.

Matt DeVirgiliis – Jul 06, 2010

Susan,

Thanks for commenting on West Side of the Tracks.

Sara – Jul 06, 2010

Susan, thank you for your lovely comment on Crystal.

Jack Swenson – Jul 02, 2010

Yup. In Pia Ehrhardt's words, "pain and sex and disconnection." I'm not a big fan of disconnection, either, but I figured maybe I could learn something here. The disconnects aren't really disconnected, if you know what I mean. Every once in awhile I take a stab at this kind of thing, though, maybe because I'm lazy. I appreciate your comments anyway. Your notes on a story are always clear-eyed and refreshing. Thanks!

Meg Pokrass – Jun 25, 2010

Thank you, Susan, I'm glad you liked Pitt Bull!

Meg Pokrass – Jun 25, 2010

Thank you, Susan, I'm glad you liked Pitt Bull!

Brianne Fidgety – Jun 25, 2010

You know what? You're not the first person who has ever said that. Flashes of things appear in my head, and I put them on paper -- it's a weird process I can't really describe, but that's how I write. Anyway, thanks for reading the opening to "Woolgathering". I wish I didn't have to leave for work because I'd really like to spend the night working on it.

Juhi Kalra – Jun 25, 2010

Susan, Thank you for your comment on "One". I hope you continue to find recognition in the rest of the series. And the occasional prose I post.

Brianne Fidgety – Jun 24, 2010

Somebody I knew once thought it would be funny to submit a haiku I had written about a zombie bunny to a horror zine back in 2004. That's the extent of my publishing experience. I have nothing but fear for publishers.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Jun 24, 2010

Thank you for the kind word regarding My Eyes Don't See the Truth. Much appreciated.

Bill Yarrow – Jun 24, 2010

Thanks, Susan, for your kind comment on "The Assassination of Sadat."

Brianne Fidgety – Jun 24, 2010

I'm still very new to Fictionaut, so whenever I get a comment, I make this sound -- true story. I'm sure I'll get over it eventually, but until then, I'll continue to sound like a guinea pig trapped in a piano.

Thank you so much for your comments on "The Nightly Dance" and "Though the Heart be Still as Loving". This is the first time in my life I've ever been brave enough to share my writing in a public forum, and I'm floored that I'm getting positive feedback. Thank you again. (I'm not sure if I can say that enough.)

George LaCas – Jun 24, 2010

Hi Susan, thanks for your comments about "Lick My Blahniks, she said".

Juhi Kalra – Jun 11, 2010

Hi Susan, Thank you for the welcome comment on my first contribution to Fictionaut. Beginning of a poetry series has been posted today. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on them. I love that I'm already familiar with some of your pieces here. ~ J

Jack Swenson – May 27, 2010

Thanks, Susan. Your "Well done" means a lot to me. The bailing out part of the story is true. Ouch!

Cherise Wolas – May 24, 2010

Susan, thanks for sending me the link to your 100/100 project. I read the second one today. It was a wow, all that was there, and what you didn't include.

Cherise Wolas – May 23, 2010

Susan,
I am so impressed with your self-set exercise, 100 pieces of micro fiction in 100 days. You are on my contact list, so I do hope you'll keep posting!

Marc Nash – May 23, 2010

Thx for enjoying and commenting on my Sunday Cookout story!

Larry Strattner – May 14, 2010

Thanks for the comments on Eli. I get a huge kick out of dogs. Never owned one - if I ever do it will be one of the working breeds. Some of them are so smart it's scary.

Your attaboys are very encouraging.

Larry Strattner – May 14, 2010

James Lloyd Davis – May 12, 2010

Walter Bjorkman – May 10, 2010

Susan, thanks for the good words on The Why Boy. This is one that I like more as I read it more, often I go the other way.

Tina Barry – May 10, 2010

Hi Susan,
It's great to wake up to words of praise about "I Like it This Way" in my inbox. Thanks and thanks for the star, too. I workshopped that piece in a class, and the students went back and forth about keeping or omitting the ending. I kept it. It's not a story without it.

R. A. Allen – May 09, 2010

Susan, thanks for your analytical compliments regards "Cover Story." They got me high for two days and I saved a copy of it in the family bible:) "Maude Nichols" was fun.

Lori Lou Freshwater – May 07, 2010

Susan, thank you so much for reading and commenting on This Girl in That Shirt.

Stephen Carter – May 07, 2010

Hi Susan,

Sorry i'm so late in thanking you for your comment. I believe you were the first person to read The Naked Man of Barcelona...and your flattering remarks seemed to have had a little snowball effect. And thanks for pointing out the typo!! Its took me an hour or so to even figure out to fix it...but i got to it eventually.

I haven't had time to read as much on fictionaut as i'd like but i see you have a lot of stories posted. I look forward to reading them.

Foster Trecost – May 03, 2010

Rick Rofihe – May 02, 2010

Thanks very much for your kind and generous response to "Scar".
Best wishes,
RR

JM Prescott – May 01, 2010

An Atwood reader in Connecticut! That makes me burst with pride and familiarity. All of us Canadians know each other just like all writers know each other. I can prove it. I have a picture.

Susan Tepper – Apr 29, 2010

Susan, I very much appreciate your comment and fav of my poem Level, thank you

Thank you for reading What I Should Have Done - #1! Thinking of revising into third person, and working on this little project of mine in that way.

Stephanie Bobo – Apr 25, 2010

Thanks, Susan, for reading "Classmates," and your fav and the comments--your seeing the simlutaneous intimacy and openness helped me see that too!

Jack Swenson – Apr 24, 2010

Very nice to hear from you, Susan. Thanks for commenting on "Bad Luck."

Cherise Wolas – Apr 24, 2010

Thank you so much for your lovely words on The Sloshim Period and the fave! I am thrilled it worked for you. I am fairly new to the site and starting to really delve in, and I so look forward to reading your work.

Martha Williams – Apr 23, 2010

Susan, thank you so much for your kind words on 'Nobody Told Marni' - I'm still quite new to all this so it really means a lot to me. Martha

Walter Bjorkman – Apr 20, 2010

Susan - thanks for your reading and kind words on If I Make it in Time, appreciate.

P. Jonas Bekker – Apr 05, 2010

Hello Susan, thanks for your positive remarks about 'In a Bar'. I think I am starting to get this flash fiction thing so there'll probably be more where this one came from.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Apr 03, 2010

Thank you for reading Liquid Compass and your comment.

Jack Swenson – Apr 03, 2010

Susan, It's good to hear from you again. Thanks for the kind words. I've been hoping you'd post a new hypertext story one of these days. They are great!

Meg Pokrass – Apr 02, 2010

Thank you for your kind words on Villa Monterey and so many other stories, Susan. It means so much. Have a great Easter weekend!

Thanks very much for the kind "Read Chinese" comments.
Best,
RR

Jane Hammons – Mar 24, 2010

Thanks so much for the hypertext info and link, Susan.

Jane Hammons – Mar 24, 2010

Now I am completely addicted to the hypertext story. I'm teaching a hybrid writing class in the fall and think I will play around with hypertext with my students (who will know much more than I about the form). It seems like it would be a good way to wrest even more control from the teacher, which is fine with me.

Stephanie Bobo – Mar 24, 2010

Thank you, Susan, for your kind words about "Bread, Fish, Serpent, Stone."

Ev'ntho – Mar 23, 2010

Thanks for the comment on Oh, Dada!, Susan:-)

Susan, thanks so much for your thoughtful comments on my story. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Jack Swenson – Mar 19, 2010

Foster Trecost – Mar 18, 2010

Hi Susan, thanks for your comments on Invisible Grime - I'm happy you liked it.

Jack Swenson – Mar 15, 2010

Susan, You are an amazing reader as well as writer. I always learn something about my stories when you comment on them. Thanks!

Jack Swenson – Mar 15, 2010

Susan, Thanks for the wake-up call. I think I'll post even micros one at a time from now on. I like 'em short and sweet, too.

Henry Pelifian – Mar 15, 2010

I appreciate your comments on From the Reader's Ingest, Mouth Theory. At this point you are in a very select group of less than five, way less than five, who have in print form praised this writer's fiction work. My work has had the distinction of being rejected by the best and most renowned publications. Art may be a personal editorial decision by like minds until they change their minds.

Thanks again for your wonderful comments!

Jack Swenson – Mar 13, 2010

Susan, No one writes a better review than you do. Thanks for your kind comments about "Mona" and about my writing.

Jack Swenson – Mar 12, 2010

Susan, You hit the nail on the head with your comments about the "new" style of writing. I feel the same way.

Jack Swenson – Mar 12, 2010

Susan, thank you so much for your review of "Mona." If you are not a lit. critic or an editor, you have missed your calling. I will print this out and keep a copy in my wallet, wave it under people's noses, and say, "So there! How do you like them apples?!" Love you.

David Ackley – Mar 11, 2010

Thanks again, Susan for the nice words about my terrorist.

George LaCas – Mar 10, 2010

Hi Susan, thanks for commenting on "Wedding Cake."

Jack Swenson – Mar 10, 2010

Jack Swenson – Feb 13, 2010

Susan,
I've been trying and trying to think of a way to end my series of micros, and I think I've finally come up with one. I'll add the words "To Be Continued."

Thanks for your thumbs up!

Christamar Varicella – Feb 13, 2010

Thanks, Susan. I appreciate your comments just as I enjoy reading your inventive stories.

John Smith – Feb 10, 2010

Thanks so much for your comments on "The Witness." I always learn something from your commentary. You are a good teacher!

ChrisTopher Meidl – Feb 09, 2010

Thanks, Susan, for the comments on Friction. Not sure if I should do a Part Two or do an edit with a deeper and more specific resolution. Your thoughts and advice would welcome and appreciated. -cm

Susan, Thank you for reading and commenting on my story - I appreciate both very much. foster.

sara t. – Feb 01, 2010

Susan, thanx so much for your comments on "Desire". I never wrote anything like this before, and i really didnt want it to sound too "bodice-ripperish", but i had to use some words to get the feeling of this moment right. I think it works too!

Jack Swenson – Jan 29, 2010

Susan,
I just read "Maude Nichols." Clever and fall-on-the-floor funny!

David Erlewine – Jan 28, 2010

Thanks...Susan! "Slightly wavering" is the best way to describe my voice.

Jerry Ratch – Jan 20, 2010

Thanks again, Susan.
Jerry

Lou Godbold – Jan 19, 2010

When you stop writing encouraging, perceptive comments I will run for my umbrella because it will mean Chicken Little is right and the world is coming to an end.

Paul de Denus – Jan 16, 2010

thanks Susan- I appreciate it

Jack Swenson – Jan 15, 2010

Susan
I'm glad you liked "Menage." I mean, I didn't mean to suggest... Well, you know what I mean. Thanks!

Tia Prouhet – Jan 12, 2010

Thanks, Susan, for the kind words on "Nutrition". You're the bestest.

Jack Swenson – Jan 10, 2010

Susan,
Thanks for your comment about "The Driver's Seat." Nice of you to "fav" it as well!

Drew – Jan 08, 2010

Thank you for your comment on Breeze.

Jack Swenson – Jan 07, 2010

Thanks for your comment on my story. Yup. Life's an adventure, isn't it?

Douglas Light – Jan 07, 2010

Susan:

Thanks for the kind comment on my piece "Gatlinburg." Glad you enjoyed.

Geoff Barbanell – Jan 06, 2010

thx for taking the time to say something sweet. means a lot to a 1st time poster.

Thanks, Susan...

TJ Skarbo – Dec 26, 2009

Thanks so much for your comments on the story "I am wearing stolen socks" I appreciate it and look forward to reading your latest...

Lou Godbold – Dec 26, 2009

Once again you bring a smile to my face over my morning cup of tea as I assiduously check for comments. Will you be my godmother?

Jeremy Holland – Dec 24, 2009

Thanks for the kind coment. Feliz navidad!

Carol Novack – Dec 21, 2009

Thanks for enjoying my holiday story, Susan!

Jerry Ratch – Dec 21, 2009

Thank you , Susan, for your kind comment on "Man On A Balcony In His Bathrobe."

Jay Johnson – Dec 19, 2009

Susan; thanks for the really nice comment on "Anaphylaxis". It's one of my more singularly driven narratives, for certain--something I think was easier to pull off, for me, in a shorter piece. And, yeah: the definition headers are a cliche--but a nod at the subversion of certainty I was trying to gesture towards throughout this one. Again, thanks for the great comment--looking forward to finding time to check out your work! Cheers, Jay.

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 19, 2009

i just wrote a looong review encouraging you to submit this to frank hinton for the metazen christmas book...sorry to lose my review (and 1 fav)! i really liked this story very much - honest pulled no punches well structured and spread - but when i tried to save your story was - gone!? ...pity! you give so much here and the least anybody can do is give some attention back to you.

Jason Henry McCormick – Dec 18, 2009

Thanks Susan! I must mention that your story Maude Nicols had something to do with my idea for "Your Next Story." I have a feeling that I will continue to experiment with the direct relationship between the reader and writer. It's just so much fun!

Matt Mullins – Dec 16, 2009

Ah, sorry about the confusion. I didn't even notice the fav thing. I'm pretty new to the site (well, I've been a member for quite some time but have just gotten around to participating) and am still figuring out how to respond to people, technologically speaking--if I should just reply from my email or go to their page and comment back (like I'm doing right now). So things like favs are going right over my head.

Yes, Barthes and Borges. I think I need to write a story with the two of them boxing, or maybe baking a cake.

Matt Mullins – Dec 16, 2009

I'm not quite sure how to take your comment, Susan, but thanks for reading.

Jason Henry McCormick – Dec 15, 2009

Hey, Susan! Thanks for the message - yeah, I just went for it. I'm so glad this group exists. You can count me in for it every month.

Ryan Mazer – Dec 15, 2009

Thanks so much for the nice, thoughtful words on my stories!

Carol Reid – Dec 14, 2009

I appreciate your generosity. Thank you so much for taking the time to read one of my stories and offer such valuable comments.

Matt Dennison – Dec 13, 2009

Hey, Susan, Thanks SO MUCH for the kind words about "FLower as Big..."

Jason Henry McCormick – Dec 07, 2009

Hi, Susan. Yeah, "Maude Nichols" is a fantastic story. I've never seen anything quite like it. Very creative, very engaging, and very, very cool.

Susan Tepper – Dec 06, 2009

Susan, thank you again (and your Eng Prof !)for the insightful read of Fake Man, much appreciated.

Meg Pokrass – Dec 05, 2009

I love what you are doing. Totally love it, Susan. It is so creative and innovative and FUN

Trent England – Dec 05, 2009

Thank you again, Susan. You are too kind.

David Russo – Dec 04, 2009

Thanks for all the encouraging words, Susan!

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 04, 2009

cheers! i'd appreciate it!

re: scott garson reminds me that i have a piece (five women: penelope, on fictionaut) pending at wigleaf since absolutely ages...kathy fish i think suggested i should submit it. i am lazily letting go of the possibility of publication...

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 04, 2009

thanks, susan! it’s an odd thing: i didn’t even know i’d enjoy commenting on other people’s work: i am not, and have never been part of a literary community and, frankly, i dreaded receiving comments (could be, because of real life group experiences in london and auckland a while ago that cemented my writer’s block. it’s gone). the journey is great and i find fictionaut very sustaining (next to other modes of near-continuous procrastination).

i didn’t know you were an editor/publisher - read “about” on your site now (like it), and i’m happy to see i’m not the only nutter on here…i’m an ENFP btw. ms flawnt is an ISTJ (complementary opposite).

i keep coming back to your hyperfiction pieces and i think i am ready to experiment some. noticed you also use wordpress. i am curious how i would start … by making a process map perhaps? a file chart? redraw the lines of my body on glass? on japan paper? i’m clueless. maybe that’s a question for your hypertext

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 04, 2009

"The writer's soul bleeds onto paper and still, one is different than another and yet all the same." - well put, susan, succinct and yet succulently true.

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 04, 2009

i'd like to dub you hyper-fictitious angel for your helpful thoughtful attitude on fictionaut and i hope you have a great festive season, susan!

Gay Degani – Dec 03, 2009

Thanks Susan for making me feel so welcome here at Fictionaut.

Greg Gerke – Dec 02, 2009

Thank you Susan. Oh, William Gay, he's great. I relate to the bad mood spurring on creativity.

Trent England – Dec 02, 2009

Susan - thank you for the kind words!

R. A. Allen – Dec 01, 2009

Thank you for the comments on "Hearts in Exurbia." I notice we read some of the same authors. I read Gay's "That Evening Sun" a few years ago and have conversed with him at the Oxford Conference for the Book. I just finished Murakami's "After Dark." I didn't get it.

Larry Strattner – Nov 30, 2009

Thanks for the comment on Hot. I told Jurgen I feared the site would grow to the point a lot of folks didn't know each other.
I "pactice" here but since I joined a lot of folks i originally knew have gotten lost in the ether.
It's always great when someone takes the time to make a comment so you get a POV on your words. Thanks again.
Having said that, I did not post on Aliens which I thought had a great ending.
Also, I owe you one because I sent a longer story I had to Bewildering Stories, a site you mentioned. I didn't know them prior but thought they might like the premise.
Collect whenever you wish.
Regards.

Morgan Harlow – Nov 26, 2009

I just logged in to comment on Thanksgiving Day 2039, which I enjoyed reading. The tone of it striking, unusual, acute.

Paul Steven Stone – Nov 26, 2009

Susan, so glad you enjoyed "Island of Final Regrets." It was one of those stories that surprise the writer as well as the reader, which is why, I guess, I chose it for my first Fictionaut submission. Keep your eye out for a 'sequel-of-sorts' written a year so later. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Shawn Faulkner – Nov 25, 2009

Susan, thanks for the quick comment . . . it is a longer story. I hope you have the opportunity and time (never enough) to keep reading.

Lou Godbold – Nov 20, 2009

'Merci,' Susan! I haven't written short stories in ages, so I thought for my virgin run at this I'd post something I wrote for my blog. Thus the ending is more 'What did I learn from this?' than a dramatic conclusion. But thank you for the compliments. I will endeavor to dig out more stuff or maybe try one of the chapters from my book? It's a totally new experience to be read by thoughtful and appreciative readers. Very cool!

Drew – Nov 20, 2009

Thank you for the comment on Jan. 1993.

Gary Percesepe – Nov 18, 2009

ok--dhu! --yeah, falco is in there, yes--dumb of me.

lol

Gary Percesepe – Nov 18, 2009

yeah, when i read his story collection, just knocked me out--that strange (to me) southern gothic, that beautiful detail, characters fully formed --

falco? i do not have him on my book list, do i? i have FANTE (lol)--

anyway, used to mess with some hypertext stuff, back in the day, have not in a while--

cheers,

gary

Gary Percesepe – Nov 18, 2009

god to see william gay up there--he is sorta amazing, isn't he?
