Song of Passing Grief by James Beamon
Originally published in Penumbra
James Beamon served in the US Air Force, was deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and has over twenty years worth of hilarious marriage stories but assumed no one would know unless he could get his bio in print. So he worked with cheetah speed and weasel scruples to get stories published in places such as F&SF, Lightspeed and Apex Magazine so the audience could finally find his bio. Determined that even more people would find his bio, he wrote a debut novel called Pendulum Heroes and included an About the Author section. And he’s going to keep writing, mostly because bios don’t come with like buttons and view counts and he can’t determine how many people have really seen it. He encourages you to check out what he’s up to at fictigristle.wordpress.com or on twitter @WriterBeamon.
