Down & Out: The Magazine is available everywhere in both ebook and print editions. This issue includes eight stories from stand up writers like Bill Crider, Carroll John Daly, Andrew Welsh-Huggins and, if you’re doing the math, five other terrific writers. I’m proud to be included in the magazine and I’m a little proud of “A Calculated Risk” since I think it turned out disturbingly well.
And to whet your appetite, here are the first couple paragraphs from my story:
Six years, two months, thirteen days.
Nothing more than a measurement of time’s passage. The spread so large it would be impossible to connect the perpetrator with the crime. Only a fool or madman would hold a grudge so long. A grudge most never knew existed and those who did know, would have forgotten years ago. It wasn’t much of a thing anyway.
An everyday betrayal.
