Some AMV readers may have already read this series of short short stories by Eric Nielson since he posted them at the Blogger of Jared just last year. But for those who missed it the first go round, give it a shot. I make no great literary claims for these stories — and I don’t think that Eric would either — but I agree with Ardis Parshall when she writes that this Earl Johnson character is “sad and funny and wonderful.” By choosing this Walter-Mitty-esque format, Eric gets at some very Mormon experiences but does so in a wistful way.

Not sure if this is what you’re looking for. The link is for the first in a series of five, just replace the roman numeral in the end of the link to get to the others. If self promotion is bad form I apologize.”
Wm: Please note that Eric was kind enough to update the posts so you can now navigate between each piece in the series easily. And as he now knows, a little self-promotion is just fine.
