Just found out my short story, "The Happiness of Water", which appears in my recent fiction chapbook The Smashing House, was reviewed in a review of the magazine it first appeared in. The Review Review wrote, “The Happiness of Water” drops the reader right into a dank crawlspace under a home where a man has been trapped for several days by an injured fox. The absurdity of being down there for days just under the house without the family members even seeming to notice is not lost on the man as he considers his situation and weighs his choices. Described as an “existential standoff” McCullough stays close to the vein focusing not on foreground or conclusion but rather the dire waning moments of life and the choices that must be made.
