Matthew Di Paoli's short story "Quicksand" first appeared in issue thirty-nine of Neon. It's a dark little tale about a man who finds himself stuck in a patch of quicksand while on his way to the butcher. As the story progresses he sinks deeper and deeper, while the world around him continues apace - not even a visit from his parents or a new prospective love interest can save him from sinking. "Quicksand" was one of Neon's 2014 Pushcart Prize nominations.
