“First-Person Shooter” up at Lunch Ticket magazine


My short story “First-Person Shooter” is up at Lunch Ticket magazine, along with some really cool short fiction, flash fiction, poetry, essays and interviews with Emily Rapp, Mary Gordon, and Counterpoint Press editor Dan Smetanka.

“First-Person Shooter” is a story that’s been gestating ever since the Virginia Tech school shooting and the way everything about it seemed to connect with me (the Asianness of the shooter, his alienation, the way the parents basically disappeared from the community afterward). I tried to make some sense of the aftermath through my protagonist Marcus, who was the only friend of the fictional shooter in my story.
