I received word that “Headhunter” was accepted by Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Presents Flush Fiction: A Tantalizing Collection of Short Stories! Coming in April 2012! I don’t typically risk this, but I’d say this warrants a happy dance…

According to their website, they have more than 10 MILLION copies in print of their twenty-something titles! Holy crap. (Sorry. Had to be said)
Quoting straight from the Uncle John’s website: “It was 1987. Uncle John found himself stranded on his throne with nothing to read. That’s when he came up with the idea to launch a series of trivia books specifically tailored toward his fellow bathroom readers. He gathered together the best trivia writers he could find and charged them with the task of combing the worlds of science, history, sports, politics, and pop culture to compile dozens of interesting articles that could be absorbed in just a few minutes.“Every article must be simple to read,” he told us, “and every page must either have an amazing fact or a good laugh—or both.” And with that, the Bathroom Readers’ Institute was born.”
And now I’m going to be a part of it. Very exciting!
