Atlantic Publishes Fiction!

The Altantic included a Stephen King short story in its April issue in response to his accusation in Year’s Best that they’ve given up on fiction. Great story, but I doubt they’d have published it if King’s name hadn’t been attached. For one, it’s about poor Americans, which for some reason nobody wants to hear about. Poor foreigners, rich immigrants, boring academics– sure! But not anybody we might feel responsible for. Which means King gets extra cheers, for double mountain moving.
