Today, James Boice reads an excerpt from his newest eShort The Degaussment. James has written three novels: The Good and the Ghastly, NoVA, and MVP (Scribner all). His work has been in places like Esquire, McSweeney's, and Post Road. However, lately when it has come to short stories he has been forgoing the traditional methods of publication in favor of putting them out himself, directly to the reader. He writes them, he makes them, he sells them. They are about $2. You can read them on paper or on your digital thingamuhoo. The idea is independence. You can find them here: http://www.jamesboice.com/shortstories.html.

The word on The Degaussment:
A DIY, independently produced short story from the author of the novels THE GOOD AND THE GHASTLY (Scribner, 2011) and MVP (Scribner, 2007). A genius engineer is torn between love, death and his obsession with his work: perfecting a piece of technology that is suddenly obsolete.
