The Hair Collector & Other Stories

The Hair Collector & Other Stories




My second book of fiction is finally out! After a long time translating and editing, “The Hair Collector & Other Stories” is available on CreateSpace and Amazon.

This bilingual English/Spanish collection contains pieces ranging from flash fiction to folktale. Set in New York, New & Old Mexico, Guatemala, Italy, and the future, eight morsels of Zap Fiction lead off the collection, and five longer stories close it out. The Spanish translations, the product of a team of people, are as true to the original English as possible.



Bilingual sneak peek

As I jump through the final editorial hoops to get my second book finished, I think it’s time to give you, the readers, a sneak peek.
In the final version of the book, the English will be on one side of the page and Spanish on the other, but for now, a word document with the two languages separated will have to suffice. This piece of flash fiction is called “The Fatal Kiss” — or “el beso fatal” en español.

I am posting the story in its entirety for download here, but if you’d like to be a sweetheart and help the cause, I’m selling it for $0.27 — yes, that’s right, 27 cents — on
