J. Mark Bertrand is one of my Master’s Artist compadres. In my mind I always refer to him as “the scholarly one.” Not that the other Master’s Artists are nitwits, but we each sort of bring our own seasoning to the sauce, and let’s just say Mark serves up a more cerebral stew than some of us. He’s also a man in love with words and art and God. I admire him for all these qualities, but more to the present point, I find his writing a pure delight.
And now the good news! Mark published an intriguing short story in the latest edition of The New Pantagruel called “Midafternoon Apocalypse.” You can find his wonderful words here.
Let me know what you think. Enjoy!
