Short Story Publication in Anthology
My short story The Last Laugh is a funny tale about the practical jokes that unfold in a sweltering, grimy steel mill.
Long, grueling shifts in dangerous conditions can erode even the most tranquil of temperaments, so fun pranks give employees a chance to let off a little steelworker steam. New hires are prime targets, falling victim to every joke, until one newbie turns the sizzling tide. His unique idea for getting even puts a nasty-tempered old-timer in his place and makes the greenhorn the hero of his crew. This story is part of the FWA anthology, WHAT A CHARACTER.
