Three chapters at once today. They're none of them all that short, but they present a sequence that I thought should be kept together.
Mostly my fiction is, well, fictitious, but I do take inspiration from real events that I remember. The story of Dead George is one that provided me more than inspiration, it actually happened just about exactly as Lisa recounts. I heard about it the same way Lisa did, from the poor woman who was involved. So anyone who doubts my presentation of Carlos' motivation for pursuing Jack is invited to remember that truth really can be stranger than fiction.
