Riding the storm out in Lufkin, Texas has turned out to be the right move. A little rain and wind from Gustav seems to be the extent of it. The hotel accommodations and the generosity of the people have been first rate. Of course, I’ll be heading back to areas that were hit directly by the storm, and as a result, posts over the next week may continue to be light. One good thing that has come out of the storm has been plenty of writing time. I knocked out a short story which I’m now fine tuning. I made time for a few distractions, including some trips to various stores where I found the shelves are well-stocked with the Longarm and Trailsman books. I picked up a couple, and I’m in the middle of reading Longarm # 358. I’ve also begun working my way through the very entertaining A Hell of a Woman, and so far, there’s not one bad story in this anthology.
Out of the Gutter has posted a list of contributors for issue #5 and my name appears on the list. It's an honor to be included with this fine group of writers. Little d's crossword puzzle will appear in the same issue.
