"A Learned Man," by Melinda Brasher
My story, "A Learned Man," appears in the May 31 issue of Electric Spec. It's based on a 2-page folk tale I read in a small-town library one day in El Salvador, when I was tired of sightseeing. I wrote most of the rough draft in the pleasant square there in Ahuachapan.
