And so the gauntlet was thrown. This 10-story (and two essay) collection of postmodern literary fiction is the result of that challenge, for better or worse. A story a month, all of them having been excruciatingly scrutinized by the infamous Austin Writing Workshop, and so…. y'know. There's that. Deadlines do seem to work miracles for productivity, but they do not guarantee quality-only you can decide on that. So, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.

I started reading Almost Home by Frank Marcopolos under the assumption that it would be a very sports-centric novel and was therefore surprised to find out that it was actually much more than this. The plot has several twists and turns and explores the overall drama of college life with particular attention being paid to the more seedy aspects.
