NEW PAGE: MORE FICTION, “LISTENING TO A MOSQUITO BUZZ”
I just added another piece of fiction to the page listings above. It’s a story that I actually wrote quite a few years ago but recently dusted off and still enjoyed it. I thought it was worth sharing.
Like nearly all of my fiction, it takes place in Idaho in areas near where I grew up or went to college. In northern Idaho there are university towns full of academia and resort towns full of out of state money nestled right alongside very depressed and struggling logging and mining communities. It results in sort of an unspoken (or loudly spoken if you end up in the wrong small town drinking hole) tension and resentment. That tension was where this character came from.
This story is fiction but it is fairly violent, dark, bigoted, sexual and backward looking– if you expect more from me or are bothered by these things, feel free to click here instead.
