"Bridgette" by Francis J. Comando from Stormfists Magazine
Speaking of hard-boiled, my story "When Clementine Sings," was published in Stormfists this week. Even though it reads as a Prohibition gangster piece, you might recognize someone from Melniboné. Please, pop on over and take a look.
But don't just visit for my sake, because every week, FJ Comando publishes something new.
