    Hello from Washington State!

    Hey all! My name's Joe. I live in Washington, and I've been taking writing seriously for the past two years or so. I've written around 40 short stories in the realms of horror, crime and bizarro, and am currently working on my first novella. I recently got my first short story acceptance.

    When I'm not writing I'm probably reading, cooking, watching a horror movie or going to a punk show. My favorite writers are Joe Lansdale, Jack Ketchum, Violet Levoit and John Skipp. I've been looking for a good writer's group for some time--I'm excited to be here!

    Excited to have you here, Joe, because it's not merely a case of "the more, the merrier;" it's a case of "the more, the better!"
    I look forward to seeing you around.

    Hello, Joe. I am going to Washington this week. Walla Walla to be exact to check out our wheat farm in Waitsburg and to buy some wine at L'Ecole No. 41. My husband was born in WW and grew up in Bellevue. His son lives in Seattle. Very fine state, I must say.

    Congratulations on the publication of a short short! Very impressive accomplishment. You'll be much appreciated here, I am sure.

    Welcome, Joe!

    And congratulations on your first short story publication! (I'm still waiting on that one myself.)

    So, you write bizarro fiction, huh? I am very interested in discovering what bizarro fiction is about!

    Have fun looking around!

    Hi Joe! I grew up in Spokane, and have lived off and on in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island. I'll actually be moving back there in about a year! Welcome!
