Mangoes, Man goes, etc.

9 May

Here’s one from some archives, now living up at Fictionaut. I can’t help but laugh every time I read this; it reminds me of a mash of Bogart on speed and Martin Scorsese on blow. There is actually some accurate history in this one, as well, so …. you know… it’s educational at the very least. Or most. Part 2 is now up at Fictionaut as well. You’ll find it here. Both parts were written originally in ’10, but I re-wrote a bunch of the dialogue and pushed it out a bit more; they were quite short. Re-working these pieces was a nice distraction from the one story I’m trying to finish up shortly and hope to send out to a bunch of high brow, high falutin’ magazines, which will no doubt reject it. I think of sending stories like bait for fishing; just…sometimes I use the wrong bait.

    Can you send me an invite to Fictionaut or something so I can actually read it?

    Mike, had to pull it; it got picked up for publication. I fused the two parts into one and it will appear in June. I’ll link to it then.
