Leukemia tests the atheist in the foxhole

A self-portrait of the author as Nosferatu amid chemo treatments for leukemia.

story and illustrations by Ian McDowell

I’m not the sort of atheist who refuses to say grace or throws a hissy fit about crèches on municipal property.  That’s why I didn’t mind when Bishop took my hand and prayed for me. Of course, I was still in shock. I had just learned that I might have leukemia.

Mother: So I see clown camp paid off. Read More

Just before noon on a relatively quiet side street of High Point’s Uptowne district, it felt as if a retaining wall holding back a flood of white-collar workers had ruptured, sending people spilling into Emerywood Fine Foods. By 12:05 p.m. that Friday, the only tables left were two-seaters, and most of those were occupied, too. Read More
