BTAP #6: Whiskey, Guns, and Sin by Charles Gramlich

When picking year-end ‘Best of’ reviews, many of us tend to forget all the great short stories we’ve read on blogs and e-zines. Last year, I found some sharp, poetic writing on Charles Gramlich’s Razored Zen that I won't soon forget. Just before Halloween, he opened the floodgates to anyone wishing to leave a horror short and posted several dark tales himself. One in particular, ROADKILL, is still circling in the darker regions of my noggin.

We’re grateful Charles was able to carve out a bit of time from his schedule to contribute the hardboiled “Whiskey, Guns, and Sin” for BTAP.

Beyond cool, Charles.

Sandra, You're so right. This is an incredible piece. One tough thing I've learned as an editor is patience. Sitting on great stories like "Whiskey, Guns, and Sin" for several weeks is tough when you want to get it out there.
