This week, we’re talking with Tom Witkowski, whose story “The Guardian Devil” was featured on our most recent episode of The Storyteller Series. You can listen to Tom’s story by heading to http://storytellerseriespodcast.com/listen (storytellerseriespodcast.com/listen). In “The Guardian Devil,” Leonard, the “guardian devil” from whom this story takes its title, is growing increasingly frustrated by the changing world’s waning need for creative types. In the fast-paced industry of causing trouble and mayhem for humans, there’s just no time to slow down and appreciate the artistry of a well-orchestrated mishap. However, things start to change for Leonard when, after making a new friend in the most unlikely of places, he’s presented with the opportunity to showcase his talents as a different kind of guardian (think harps and feathers). Tom Witkowski lives in Minnesota and has spent the last 25 years avoiding respectable careers by working as a copywriter in advertising. He’s worked on brands like Harley-Davidson and the Minnesota Twins, and won seven regional Emmys, as well as many other industry awards, most of which mean nothing. He started a short fiction blog in 2019 called 9 Circles Fiction, and his stories have since appeared in The Daily Drunk and Bright Flash Literary Review.  In his spare time, he dreams about mountains.  You can follow him on Facebook and Twitter (@9CirclesFiction) and read more stories on his site, 9CirclesFiction.com.

Author Interviews - Marina Rubin
For this, Night Shift Radio’s first installment of The Storyteller Series: Author Interviews, Andrea Quinn sits down with Marina Rubin, whose story “Man in a Fedora” was featured on the October episode of The Storyteller Series, which you can (and should) listen to here. In “Man in a Fedora,” our young narrator recounts and retraces her ambiguous and unconventional friendship with the enigmatic Max Florentine. As she works to understand the circumstances of his conspicuous disappearance, she struggles to identify her place in his life and the effect he continues to have, even from beyond the purported grave, on hers.  Author Bio: Marina Rubin’s work has appeared in over eighty magazines and anthologies. She is an associate editor of Mudfish and a 2013 recipient of COJECO Blueprint Fellowship. Her book of flash fiction Stealing Cherries (Manic D Press) received an Honorable Mention on Heeb Magazine’s list of Best Books of 2014. Her short story “Good People Make Bad Couples” was shortlisted for the 2019 Writers’ HQ Flash Fiction Prize, and her upcoming short-story collection Snuffbox has just won an Honorable Mention for the 2020 Miami Book Fair Emerging Writer Fellowship. In addition to writing, Marina Rubin is an avid mountaineer, having summited Kilimanjaro, made it to Everest Base Camp, completed Tour du Mont Blanc and Camino de Santiago. She lives in Brooklyn.
