Here’s another place to read “The Sweet Smell of Pine Needles.” This link works well for those of you without an e-reader – just go the web page and the story is right there. Fiction365.com is an interesting little site — a new story every day — and I’ve been impressed with a lot of what I’ve read there. We all know there’s a lot of crap on the internet, but there’s some good short fiction at this site. Check it out.
Here are some awesome, crystal clear, color photographs from turn-of-the-century Russia. Stunning. That’s the only way to describe them.
You’ll notice a graphic update to the site. The new header is taken from the book cover for Sewerville; the background picture is crystal meth. the black and white photo to the right is, of course, me.
