Just had some excellent news. My short story, Sharma, has been selected for the 2011 New Asian Writing Anthology to be published later this year! In the meantime you can find it on their website: http://www.new-asian-writing.com/?p=493
Peter and I met Sharma in the early 80s in India. He was an exasperating but beautiful man who took us on such an adventure that we’ve never forgotten him. When we went back to India a quarter of a century later we made a pilgrimage to the place where we’d met up with him, but alas! he was living in another town. Sharma was (is!) special, a rare spirit, and I’m so glad that he has made it into print.
