Fiction Writer, Journalist, Photographer



David Kubicek

I have published many short stories and hundreds of articles. I wrote a Cliffs Notes on Willa Cather’s My Antonia, and in 1989 my short story “Ball of Fire” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. As head of Kubicek & Associates, I published five trade paperback books by various authors, including two I edited – October Dreams: A Harvest of Horror (with Jeff Mason) and The Pelican In The Desert: and Other Stories of the Family Farm. I live in Lincoln, Nebraska,  with a dog (a Chihuahua/Jack Russell Terrier mix) and a blue-eyed cat who thinks he owns the place.

One thought on “Bio

    I was interested in this review. I am afraid I don’t have time to follow up on everything interesting.

    I’m still at work on the Adams family from the Civil War to through the 20th century. I’m reading the second volume of a three volume biography of Henry Adams. I’ve read his very long history about Jefferson and Madison as well as many letters.

    We won’t be getting to the family reunion.
