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.

As a reader, I always discover (or get to know better) a vivid, living person on the other end of her words—so vivid, in fact, that I can seldom tell how much is truth and how much is fiction. Her first person narrators leap off the page, bare their souls, and tell you more in a page than you might think possible. Their conversations are always so rich with detail and subtle subtext. Anger, longing, [more . . .]

THE GERMAINE TRUTH

What Web Narrative Should Become

Dec 7, 2008: I don’t recall how I stumbled across the Germaine Truth, but once I discovered it and realized what it was, I was in love.

As a web professional and web creative, it is especially dear to me when I find people who are truly telling "Net native" stories. And while one could argue that The Germain Truth only translates printed media to the web, I would say it does more than that. Instead of telling one story, The Germaine Truth instead [more . . .]
