“Today I Am Paul,” by Martin L. Shoemaker. Clarkesworld #107, August, 2015.

I am just back from my annual pilgrimage to Superstars Writing Seminar, and I have returned with enough material for several blog posts rattling around in my head. But before I go there, in fact, while I am going there, please go read a wonderful short story by Martin L. Shoemaker called “Today I Am Paul.”

“Today I Am Paul” has been picked up by pretty much every Year’s Best or Best Of anthology, and it’s sold to several foreign markets.

This means you need to read it. NOW!  🙂

Thanks and kudos to Clarkesworld for publishing it.

    Ooh, that was excellent. It had me crying by the end. I kept picturing my paternal grandmother (90 last fall) even though she isn’t bedridden nor suffering from dementia. Mildred’s plight reminded me of my maternal grandfather’s last days as my Mother and aunts took care of him. It was short and well paced. Not overly technical but descriptive. Well done Mr. Shoemaker.
