This story marks part one of a serialized work in four parts, all of which will eventually nest itself within a larger novel I’m loosely calling The Moon Boys, part one of the Bell Hammers (or “White Trash Magic” trilogy).

The story features two boys struggling between the son of the flesh and the son of the spirit, the Wordsworth / Coleridge dichotomy, the wonder of the mundane and the wonder of the fantastic, and the great modern split between urban and rural with families ties barely holding it all together.

In this story, you’ll get a flavor for the initial magical appeal as well as watch me t-up some of the coming themes in the other three pieces.

Spark Notes

The Artist's Reflection

Lancelot has sold work to The New Haven Review (The Institute Library), The Anglican Theological Review, TOR (MacMillan), McSweeney's, The Poet's Market, Writer's Digest, and many, many similar markets. (His favorite, a rather risqué piece, illuminated bankroll management by prison inmates in the World Series Edition of Poker Pro). Publisher's Weekly called his debut novel BELL HAMMERS "a hoot."

He has lectured on these at academic conferences, graduate classes, and nerd conventions in Nashville, Portland, Baltimore, Tarrytown, NYC, Joplin, and elsewhere.

The Missouri Tourism Bureau, WRKR, Flying Treasure, 9art, The Brooklyn Film Festival, NYC Indie Film Fest, Spiva Center for the Arts, The Institute of the North in Alaska, and the Chicago Museum of Photography have all worked with him as a film producer and director in various capacities.
