Heya there, here's an interview I did with the editors of the Rappahannock Review who published my short story "The Good Sentinel." We talk about some...stuff I don't remember because this took place in the winter of 2015, but maybe you'll read it and like it? Oh, also...I had hair last year. Nice.

The fiction editors, Rappahannock Review: What are you reading these days? Alex Pruteanu: At this point, fiction-wise I am re-visiting what are called “the classics.” I am not too interested in contemporary fiction that comes out of the United States in particular.

It's David Hasselhoff with some sort of bandana singing some awful shit into a microphone on top of the wall.

I'm so very happy to bring out new work for you to-day, published up at The Rappahanock Review. This is a short story called "The Good Sentinel." I wrote this 14 months ago and have been trying to publish it ever since. After 67 rejections, it finally found a home. Thanks to the open-minded editors. I hope you dig it:

Here's a short one I wrote for my daughter, who has now become interested in reading some of my material.

They all talk in clichés, reading off three by five cards.

This is one of the chapters from my novella Short Lean Cuts that's dear and near to my (cold) heart:

I have a new, short piece published at The EEEL. If you dig it, you can donate whatever you wish; it's the e-version of a tip hat. The author gets everything, fyi. The site keeps nothing. Many thanks and I hope you like it:
