    1. Agreed. I was worrying that it was an actual obituary for a moment.

  8. I just got caught up on your "epistilatory thriller" and wow, good stuff -- but is this the END? How about some zombie action next? =]

    If you consider expanding it a bit, Fried Fiction publishes serialized thrillers and pays $25 for the first 1,000-word episode. Just a thought...

  10. Thank you, Milo! I'll check it out. Not sure about the zombie thing, I know nothing about them!
    Thanks Beth, I love a second opinion.
    Thank you Stu, you're the best!
    @Alex - yeah, I was going to title the post with the headline but I thought it might be taken for a real news event, so I compromised with just News Update.
    @Rasz - even I don't know. Yet.
    @Mask - it is fiction but, unfortunately, it could be real...
    @Jackie - glad you're enjoying the ride!
    @JJ - thanks, and you have a great weekend too!
