WOMB Author Published in Arabesques Review

WOMB author Eric D. Goodman has a short story published in the current issue of The Arabesques Review. His story has been published both in their print and online versions.

The printed magazine is about 150 pages and features original poetry, fiction, and articles along with translations of essays and interviews by international writers, journalists, scholars, and poets. Each issue is illustrated by featured artists. And every issue includes guest editors from around the world.

The theme of the current issue is Globalization. Not just economically, but socially, politically, emotionally.

Goodman’s story is called "Di Did Die (But So Did I)." It’s about an American who seems to catch London’s foggy mood during his vacation there the day after Princess Di’s accident.

Coincidentally, "Di Did Die (But So Did I)" has been published on the tenth anniversary of the tragic accident. Goodman wrote the story ten years ago, a day or two after the accident happened.
