Three-Sided Penny

My next post will be about a short story published in the Missouri Review in the Winter, 2007 issue. It's set in Ireland and is written by Dennis McFadden. It's a simple tale of human acquisitiveness for material things and where that leads, and has the pure cautionary notes of a folktale, but there is a lively, new energy to it. You can check out the excerpt the Missouri Review provides (very brief) here for the flavor of the thing.


I was compelled to look for more work by McFadden after reading this, hoping there was an anthology of some kind, but, though he has published in other literary journals, no such luck on a book. Yet.
