Read On, Read On

I'm going on a quick blogging vacation at least until Wednesday, but that doesn't mean that there isn't abundant content to be read.

Keith Rawson won the First A Twist of Noir's Story Contest with "In The Shower, Thinking."

Eric Beetner was in second place with the neo-noir "Past Due."

Kevin Michaels points out why it's not a good idea to flash your cash in "Hard Streak."

Paulie Decibels writes about the horror, the horror, at Thrillers Killers 'n' Chillers, with "This Old House." Think more Halloween British style, than Bob Villa.

Last but not least, mi amica, Pyzhan tries to get me and everyone else hip to other hardboiled MacDonald, John. D. If you only saw how big my TBR pile was, Pyzahn, you'd cry like a baby.

Have fun on your mini-vaca!

Paul Brazill said...

Have a good un. Ta for the mention

Pyzahn said...

Wah, wah.

Okay, go take your mini-vacation from blogging. Heaven knows I could use one. Going cold turkey might help kick this nasty blog-habit.

Sky Dad,

Thanks, I'm starting it in five...four...three...two...

Paulie Decibels,

I'd love to mention your other stuff, but I seriously can't keep up. You practically have a story up every thirty-six hours and I'm having a hard enough time reading everything else.


I don't want to kick it, I want to be more productive, writing-wise.

Ha, the very idea. You are the 2009 World Champion of Frequent Flyer Miles!

Kevin Michaels said...

Thanks for the call out! Enjoy your mini-vacation!

blog vacations are good. Have fun but do come back again.

Cormac Brown said...


No, thanks for the story!


I'll pop up here and there, like today, for instance.

You're such a mensch, always thinking of others, even when you go on vacay.

PS: Did you catch the entire Draft?

Pssst, hey, I'm supposed to be writing.
