Party Favors

My fourth story was Party Favors, purchased by Todd Robinson of Thuglit (http://www.thuglit.com/home.html), a nice ezine with a penchant for hard-boiled crime.

Party Favors began life as 'Being Sullivan Brown'. Almost everyone that critiqued this one at critters.org thought that was an incredibly lame name. I guess that they all saw "Being John Malcovich" or something. Anyway, it was meant to be a fairly straight forward hitchhiker-killer-with-a-twist story. And that's how it came out. I had the added bonus of getting a cover for the mag with my second favorite iconic handgun; the colt python with the 4 inch barrel. I don't know who the tongue belongs to...

  1. My favorite iconic handgun is of course the Webley Mark VI, in .455 caliber (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webley_Revolver)
