The Weight has an interesting history. The story grew from meeting Peter Frampton when I was (considerably) younger. I wrote about that meeting in Peter Frampton – The Weight. The story was published by The Granite Review (now defunct) in 1995 and nominated for the Pushcart Prize (didn’t win, but hey, I got nominated). It’s next appearance was in my self-published Tales Told ‘Round Celestial Campfires anthology.
And now, The Weight is in The Fifth Di… Dec 2020.
Thanks to Tyree Campbell and the rest of the Hireath Books crew for accepting my work.
