“Big Diehl,” the Novella in eBook form from MLR Press

Big Diehl Ebook CoverMy novella, “Big Diehl,” included in the anthology “Esprit de Corps,” (to be issued shortly by MLR Press), is now available at the MLR site.

The character, Big Diehl, was first given life in a short story, kindly published by the ezine, Nossa Morte. From there, the character was placed in a novella that deals with gays serving in the the military. Specifically–in this case–Big Diehl finds himself serving in the U.S. Army, as well as being part of the first contingents of American troops to go to Iraq in 2003.

And, not leaving well enough alone… A novel, “Big Diehl,” will be forthcoming from MLR Press, in winter/spring 2010, that follows Big Diehl’s return to his roots, after serving for six years in the U.S. Army.

So, yes, from short story, to novella, to ebook, to anthology, to novel… Big Diehl is getting around. Hope you follow his travels and travails.

    The novella “Big Diehl” was terrific. Since the book is apparently available in Kindle, I am hoping that a paper-print edition will soon be coming our way.

    Edward, thank you so much for your kind words. As the novella, “Big Diehl,” is part of an anthology, “Esprit de Corps,” (hard copy) published by MLR Press, it is unlikely that “Big Diehl” will appear in a stand-alone hard copy. However, the novel, “Big Diehl,” (yes, same title as the novella), is about 5,000 words short of being completed. Hopefully, MLR will like what they see, and, again hopefully, the novel will be forthcoming in hard copy this spring.

    Thanks again, George
