BULL: Men's Fiction

New Fiction by Taylor Brown - They rode horses of all colors, all bloods. Strays, they called them, tongues in cheek. Horses that offered themselves for the good of the country, under no lock and key
... http://bullmensfiction.com/fiction/in-the-season-of-blood-and-gold/
Pale light crept into the black stanchions of pine, the ashen ground, the red center of dying coals. The camped men rose silent and broke the bread, hard as stone, between blackened fingers. One of their number looked at his own. Soot and powder, ash and dirt. Neat crescents accrued underneath ...

New Fiction by Kate Scarpetta - We hated each other intensely, and were connected by that hatred. We both desired nothing more than to extinguish the other.

There was a period of time when everyone's mailbox was down on the end of Thorncreek Road. But after Mr. Berzansky got caught for the child porn thing in '97, no one wanted their mail near his slot, so to speak, so everyone started to have their mail delivered to their front porches.

New Rejection Notes by - Regrettably, I see no future for Shlock. Wait, what’s his name? See what I mean? I’ve already forgotten.
... http://bullmensfiction.com/rejection-notes/dear-doctor-arthur-conan-doyle/
January 1, 1887. Dear Doctor Arthur Conan Doyle,. In the already saturated field of detective fiction, I look for memorable characters with staying power. I want characters that are unique, will create excitement and live on beyond the present. A powerful presence that could be featured on stage ...

New Essay by - “I was being trained like the masters of old. They did not generally have large libraries. They often had only six or seven books and from these books they learned their craft.
... http://bullmensfiction.com/essay/on-subtraction-and-rereading/
I'm a believer in subtraction. In anything. From people to foods to electronics. I think more is less and less is more. If not for the fact that I love my writing and my family, I think I would make a good monk. I might even make a respectable stylite or pillar saint.

New What I Do by Kyle Bilinski - “They’re both wearing flannel shirts, unbuttoned. He appears to be removing her bra when I walk up with my bag and say, ‘Trash?’
... http://bullmensfiction.com/what-i-do/stewarding/
Passengers call me different things: steward, flight-attendant, air-hostess, even bastard (when I refused to serve a screwdriver to a young man with slurred speech during boarding). But most folks just wave and yell “SIR!” whenever they want something. The shiny nametag stuck to my button-up ...

New Salad Days Revisited by Ryan Lutz - “The explosion of drugs like meth and crack in Rural America has torn away at the psyche of each and every small town
... http://bullmensfiction.com/salad-days-revisited/crackheads-and-corn/
The words from my mother's phone call rattled around my head as I opened the door and walked into the bitter Indiana air. “Ivan got fired today, honey,” She said. “I think they're gunning for your dad next.” With overdue bills to pay and a looming tuition deadline, my priorities were rearranging ...

It was in '34, the year the feds shot up Dillinger, that Rutger Sr. got his lone, brief sip of the gangster days hooch. “Rutger Jr.,” he says to you in his throaty old man Scandinavian. “I have told you this before, but you must listen.” He knows you're no Rutger Jr., that Rutger Jr. was the ...

New Salad Days Revisited by - “I am almost twenty years out from that night when someone told me, in progressively hushed whispers, that he was watching me, and I wonder if I should have given myself so much distance before trying to chronicle those events
... http://bullmensfiction.com/salad-days-revisited/i-was-a-stranger/
I remember holding my viola, so I must have been returning from orchestra rehearsal when my roommate told me, “The weirdest thing happened. Some guy called for you, asked for you by your full name, and then when I told him you weren't here, he hung up. And then he did it two more times.

New One-Question Interview by Bryce Emley - “I wanted readers to stumble into stewarding the same way I did
http://bullmensfiction.com/bullshot-interview/bullshot-non-fiction-2/
BE: I'm sure you have countless stories to tell about your work that didn't make it into this essay — what would you say lends an experience to being the stuff of literature? KB: The bizarre and dramatic stories oftentimes trump the simple and straightforward ones. I didn't write about the time ...

http://bullmensfiction.com/bullshot-interview/bullshot-ryan-lutz/
BE: What responsibility do you feel writers have (or that you had in writing this) to complicate readers' ideas of easily demonizable people by offering opportunities for sympathy? RL: I think part of telling a good story is to make sure that every person or character you are writing about comes ...

New One-Question Interview by Bryce Emley - “… when you finally get a chance to use something in your writing, you can stop carrying it around with you
http://bullmensfiction.com/bullshot-interview/bullshot-connor-fergusun/
BE:This is a highly self-reflective piece that was admittedly, to some extent, a cathartic exercise. How does catharsis play into your writing process at large, and do you think it's a necessary component/bi-product? CF: All writing is cathartic in a certain sense. It really did help me while I ...
