I’ll make no bones about it, Mr. Joe R. Lansdale is one of my favorite writers, bar none. I had wanted to screw up the courage to ask permission to record a shorter piece of his for a very long time now, but didn’t know how to go about it. Well, sometimes, you just have to ask, I reckon. Mr. Lansdale very graciously gave me permission to put this shorter piece up (recently available on the “free stories!” section of his website, but out of rotation now). I love this short story. Like a lot of Joe’s stuff, full of melancholy, observations about life and not a little bit of humor. I hope I didn’t screw it up. Thank you, Mr. Lansdale!

If you like Joe’s stories, I recommend EDGE OF DARK WATER, recently published, which I just picked up. It’s a cracking good read.
