Sharp Dressed Man

My short story Sharp Dressed Man in live at the issue of Defenestration Magazine. It’s a sorta retelling of The Emperor’s New Clothes with a superhero theme. I originally wrote it as a 10 minute play in a playwriting class a few years ago, but didn’t like how it worked on stage. Last year I dusted it off and rewrote it as a short story and liked it much better. I wasn’t having a lot of luck placing it anywhere though and it was rejected quite a few times until a couple of weeks ago when it was accepted by two magazines almost simultaneously. I went with the first mag who responded to me. Read it, enjoy it, and let me know what you think.

Duane should like the Robocop reference.
