American Holidays

MKEF American Holidays

“American Holidays” is a set of interlocking stories, each on of which is set in an American Holiday: Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Each character gets a story of their own, told from a first person point of view.

One of the challenges I faced in this series is that I am not American. I’ve spent a lot of time in the US but it’s not the same as being native to the culture. I hope that what I’ve written seems authentic. I’m sure there are as many Americas as there are people who’ve been there. This one is mine

The first story in the series, “Memorial Day” was originally published on ERWA and became may first story in a print anthology.

Shortly afterwars, Sussanah Indigo of Clean Sheets, accepted a proposal from me to run a the (at that time, unwritten) American Holiday series on Clean Sheets, with each story being run on the day of holiday.

The whole thing was then selected by Maxim Jakubowski to be in Best New Erotica 4
