Top Page Views for May

And Almond keeps his intense grasp on the top slot. Landon makes a big jump and Mike Young has a re-birth eleven months after publication. Y'know one of the things I love about these lists? I may be mistaken, but off the top of my head, I don't recall a single month when one author had more than one piece in the top ten. I think it's pretty damned cool that, even though people are clearly reading more than just the current issue, the wealth of readers' eyes always seems to spread out across many authors. Gotta love that.

1. Pornography by Steve Almond (June 15, 2005)
2. Five Fat Men in a Hot Tub by Jeff Landon (September 15, 2005)

Whoa, I'm in such beautiful company.

SmokeLong really exhibits memorable work, which is even more remarkable than good work, I think. I literally remember 7 of these stories. And I'm not sure I could say that about many magazines.

Antonios has a gut-twisting story coming out in NOÖ [five].

Oh man: it's been so long since I wrote a decent flash.

You made the top ten! Are you excited? You were the first person I thought of when I was compiling stats this time since you came so close last month and commented on it.

And "memorable" is a great way to put it, and I agree, and thank you, sir, very much.

(And it's been ages since I've written a flash, decent or otherwise.)

I am, I admit, quite tickled. =)
