from the crazy world of Pinckney Benedict

Only fiction writer Pinckney Benedict (MFA faculty at SIUC) could give us this world:

"The characters in a new story of mine, "The Angel's Trumpet," are named Albertus Magnus, Ptolemy Philadelphus, and Cunobelinus Togodumnus. The narrator's named Athelstan Brunanburh. They're all brothers, last name of Goins. It'll be in the winter issue of APPALACHIAN HERITAGE. Their father thought it would be cool to give them all bizarre names."

Congrats, PB, on the forthcoming story!
