The Inevitable Crush of Time

Posted: 2nd February 2012 by affehaus in words

I was at the grocery store for the purposes of purchasing toilet paper (the reasons for which I was at the store getting toilet paper are interesting enough in themselves, and would consume more space than I am willing to devote to this particular incident), and as I grabbed the $1.39 generic 4-pack, this little […]

Who doesn’t like free? The illustrious Margaret Pyle, of A Month of Sundries, has been kind enough to collaborate with me on this All Hallow’s Read (in point of fact, that’s where I found out about the idea), and has fashioned for me an eBook of the Jackanapes story. Click the link to see her […]

Topless Robot is hosting a contest for time travel ideas. By not truly understanding the nature of the contest (because I don’t always read things through), I came up with an idea that, while similar, doesn’t really gibe with the proposal.
