Oh yeah, and please do not increase my Karma 10 fold.. all my Karma is bad!Truckin’
September 2009, Vol. 8, Issue 9
1. Tangerine Rockets
by Paul McGuire
Lennie was an international legend. His father walked away from a plane crash and passed along some of those good luck genes over to Lennie . . .
2. The Red Pill
by Sigge S. Amdal
She dropped the face and began to cry, as tensions rose around me. The waiters stopped waiting tables, people stopped talking; they were just exchanging knowing glances and judgmental comments . . .
3. Fine Tuning
by Milton T. Burton
He looked perplexed. I slipped my hand beneath my coat, came out with the little silenced .22 Magnum auto, and shot him right in the center of the forehead. The hollow-point bullet exited the back of his skull, making a colorful little jet of blood and brains as it went . . .
4. On Scoring
by Human Head
One look at the eyeliner, eyebrows, gold hoops and herringbone chains, and I knew this was the Angel we were supposed to see. As she drew closer to the door, the tattoo’s left little doubt. She didn’t say anything. She just looked at me . . .
5. The Joys of Gambling
by Johnny Hughes
Saratoga Springs, New York in August was the gambling capital of America in the 1920s, with the horses, the spa waters, large and ornate casinos, and America’s wealthiest citizens in a gilded age, when money and wine were treated like water . . .
What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been . . .
From Dr. Pauly McGuire’s Laptop:
The September edition of Truckin’ marks the return of the Human Head after a four year hiatus. I’m enthralled to have him back in the mix. Everyone’s favorite Norwegian word wanker, Sigge, returns for a second month in a row. We also have a couple of Texan scribes in Johnny Hughes and Milton T. Burton. And of course, I have a story inspired by a recent trip to Colorado.
Thanks for telling your friends about Truckin’. May you will increase your karma ten fold! The contibutors here write for free and you’ll be doing me a huge favor by helping get the some publicity.
If anyone is interested in being added to the mailing list, or perhaps you are interested in writing for a future issue, then feel free to contact me.
I have to sincerely thank the writers for sharing their bloodwork. Thanks for taking this leap of faith with me. And a special thanks goes out to you, the reader, for your loyalty and support over the years.
