A Few Good Conversations (Well, At Least 10) by Hans Taylor

Alcohol, empathy, and other poisons.

Most years, I think, are skippable. They suffer from this indescribable mundanity, this relentlessly oscillating day in day out. Those years you could summarise in a sentence or two. To say that 2014 was the best year of my life would be unfair to years 1997 through to 2013, and all the years that followed. But it was certainly the . . .

.FICTIONS. BY LJONES

I love these things

By Chris Poirier, editor

Aug 3, 2008: Laura Jones writes a mean vignette.

FOR RICHES OR MORE

And/Or

By speciousific, author of Silversmith

Jul 23, 2016: If you’re looking for a one sentence summary, For Riches or More is an incredibly solid, well-written story that’s definitely worth your time. Go put it in your mind-holes, or however you kids are consuming information these days.

Unlike . . . gee, probably like 90% of the stories that’re popular on here, FRoM is 100% realist fiction. Unless there’s a very, very unexpected twist coming, it’s firmly grounded in reality; the author even seems to have a reasonable grasp on how actual hacking works. [more . . .]
