Sheldon Lee Compton played poker with his uncles and paid attention: enjoy his dense story “Full House Falls, Drops A Flush“. Compton, whose full name makes me think of a bluegrass-playing confederate general, writes like a real man. He’s just been nominated for a Million Writers Award by Ramshackle Review for his story “Intruder” and now he’s here with a story and my reading of another. Check it out and leave a comment for the writer who calls me ‘hoss’ & who’s got five tattoos.
A “Gastarbeiter” is an immigrant worker especially one who came to the former West Germany in the 1960s and 1970s. Many of them stayed as immigrants. Having helped to build a country back up, they deserve to be honored and remembered. We’re all gastarbeiter now.
