I needed t…
 
An interview with J. Michael Shell. Adam Gauntlett discusses the crime fiction of Chester Himes. And our main fiction is War, by Sandra Jensen. Apart from Religion, school was torture.

The conclusion of J. Michael Shell’s Preacher Porter’s Cure. The Doggies are the oldest race in the galaxy. At least that we know of.

The Autobiography of God, by J. Michael Shell. Music is The Knowledge, by Robert A. Wolf. Special thanks to Charles McFall for his narration assistance.

Still, I am reluctant to “prefa…
 
Some Things Never Change, by M.R. Jordan. Music for this episode is Sedona Sky, by 2012. Jim Gable cradled a cheap plastic grocery bag between his arm and ribcage because the handles had broken. In the other hand he thumbed his retro iPhone X, flipping through songs. He walked with his head down, on autopilot. Tweets crawled across his screen- old …

Music is Rolling Memories, by Alexandre Falcao. “All right, all right,” said Margie, waving her hands for silence. “Enough war-on-terror talk.” The four of us had finished several bottles of wine, and her face glowed flush in the soft lamplight. I felt a little lightheaded mysel…
 
Legs, by Tara Barnett. Narrated by Lorna Boyle. Music is The Body, by Android Lust. I love my legs.

Corseting, by Brandon Blackburn. Narrated by Ken Stoeffler.

Smoke Signals, by Cody Quinn. Regret pulled a cigarette from her pack of Camels.

An Occidental Book of the Dead, by J. Michael Shell. Part 2. He wasn’t sure if his feet were quite touching that so-green grass.
