Join us in congratulating past Superstition Review contributor Thomas “Tex” Gresham on the release of his experimental collection, Heck, Texas. Tex is a screenwriter and fiction author and is currently studying screenwriting at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas. The book is a play on the stereotypical disreputable Texas town and lies somewhere between the real and imaginary. The book was released on September 4th and is available at Barnes&Noble, Bookshop, and Amazon.
The back of Heck, Texas reads: “Somewhere deep in East Texas, the hunt is on, fueled by self-hate, cough syrup, white whales, massive zits, freakshows, madness, dead pets, lost children, killer coffee, rats, Satan, good times, bad people, vomit, dementia, diarrhea, sex, and clowns. Your favorite brand of disease is back in stock. Welcome to Heck, Texas.”
Stay up-to-date with Tex by visiting his website here or his Twitter here. Be sure to also take a look at his short story for Issue 21 here.
Today, we are happy to share an intern update for former SR Blogger Stella Hall. Since her work on Issue 18, Stella has graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in English and has accepted a full-time job as a digital producer for the TV show, RightThisMinute.
She has also been working on screenwriting projects and recently finished a short film titled “Yes!”
“Yes!” was screened at the ASU Film Festival last week and won the Best Screenplay Award. It was also nominated for Best Director and Best Ensemble Acting.
View “Yes!” using this link. In her short film, a commitment-phobic man finds a diamond ring on the ground while on a date with his girlfriend and she mistakenly assumes he’s proposing—until the real owner of the ring shows up, putting their entire relationship in jeopardy.
