Ever Since the Fire Went Out: Stories
This dissertation is a collection of six short stories I wrote and submitted to fiction workshops as a PhD candidate at the University of Southern Mississippi. They are presented in an order that is more or less chronological. "Department of Archives and History," "Tomato Day," and "The Pomeranian Dream" were submitted to Steve Barthelme's workshop. "The House Hunters," "Thrasher," and "Edward Works" were submitted to Frederick Barthelme's workshop.
