In January of 2015 I was asked to give three readings of my work at the University of Alabama Gadsden Center. At the first one I thanked the people who came to hear me, and told them I thought they had a right to know if I could write or not, right from the beginning. So I told them I would play them the audio version of "The Killing of Train-Man Brown", and that afterward, if anyone wanted to leave, there would be no hard feelings. No one left.
There really was a New Hope Crash and at the end of this story I will tell you the best place to read about it. The New Hope Crash has been on my mind for many years. I could never shake it. Finally, I went to see the crash site myself, and returning home wrote this story. It will tell you how I first came to hear and know about the real New Hope Crash and how I combined fact and fiction to I hope bring the story of that fateful evening to more and more readers across the nation and the world than those who had previously known about it.
Bad news travels fast, even more so today. The families heard about the crash almost immediately...even though it happened almost 1,000 miles away. The surviving families were devastated. The public and this writer wondered just one question: "Why?"

This is a horrible, true story. One person called it "gruesome". I agree with that statement. It is a story not for the faint of heart. Turn back now, if that is you. What it really is though, is a strong dose of reality. Not of just how frail life is and how quickly and horribly it can end, but also of how cold and inhumane people can be to each other. People in both low and high positions. You have been warned. I have told this story as I have heard it. All names have been changed except my own.

"THIS STORY FOR THE AGES MADE ME CRY"
What you are about to listen to is part of an unpublished novel, based on the absolute worst time of my life: The Winter of 1988-89. It was such a bad time, so many bad things happened all at once, that I am very surprised that I did not kill myself, or someone else. I seriously thought about doing both. As God only knows if I will ever finish the whole novel, I wanted to share at least part of it, this part, with the world. What you are about to read is true. I was so bad off I was seeing and talking to "Jesus" at the time.
