Best thing I've read all week >>> THE DYING MAN, a short story by Ben Stroud featured in Pindeldyboz's 7th and final print journal. The author handles with tremendous sensitivity and beauty the fear, the taboo, of discussing death with someone sliding inexorably in that direction. Spare but evocative writing, I cried at the end, then returned to the beginning.
But there's lots of other great fiction and non-fiction in the 136 pages of this amazing and FREE edition. Check it out, and patronize the Pindeldyboz Website, which is going nowhere soon.
