About ten years ago, my short story "The Curse of Tatiana Minero," a fable about a man whose memories of a teenage girl ruin his life, was published in Void magazine. I did a Google search of the story today to see "how it is doing" and I discovered that Void has re-published it this year.
For some reason I thought of the story last night as I was reading an interview with one of my favorite writers Bruce J. Friedman in a book about comedy writing called Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations with Today's Top Comedy Writers by Mike Sacks.
I agree with Friedman that you should never try to write comedy but rather tell the truth and either your work will be funny or it won't, but that's not the point. The truth is.
