  1. “Read and vote for Mitchell’s story here.” Thx NKC! I died on Deathmatch. A noble death, but still – I’m out. Kinda like Francis Macomber, it felt good to take myself out of my comfort zone and write in a different style. Also, meeting my alter-ego, “Arlo” was interesting! He may return, to speak his foul-mouthed truth. Cheers – m

  2. Looking forward to the paper edition.
