    Summary

    Here’s a joke for you: a Muslim, a zombie, and a leprechaun walk into a bar in Misery, Indiana. No one stares, because no one in the puckered, shitty asshole of Misery, Indiana gives a fuck. The Colts are playing. 

    “Fucking new gods,” the leprechaun mutters, hunching his shoulders almost up to his ears. “Gridiron and Pepsi commercials.”

     
    …or, Mad Sweeney, Laura Moon, and Salim-not-Salim get stuck on the road trip from hell. Urban legends, necrophilia, and the Midwest ensue.

    Summary

    He’s surprised Arthur even wants him to come along on this hunting trip. They haven’t done something just the two of them in too long. They split up a lot these days: Arthur and Hosea, John and Dutch. At camp, they all still joke and argue and sing and squabble, but the fractures are there just the same.

    And John has no idea why.

    Summary

    Arthur has stood on clifftops, staring off the edge of the world and wondering how long it would take him to hit the ground. One more step, out into emptiness where nothing matters anymore, but he’s always too weak to take it, always hesitating.

    Clinging to a life that doesn’t cling back.

    He’s waded into riverbanks, the current strong and vicious, tugging at his clothes and trying to draw him in. Thought about how easy it would be to go limp and let the water take him. Let the river close over his head, blackness all around— weightless and boneless and nothing is his fault anymore.

    Thought about how easy it would be, nothing to do but breathe in water, close his eyes, and drift away. This isn’t anything like that.

    Then Arthur glances up, and sees him coming over the ridge. It’s too far, really, and he’s wearing a bandana over the bottom half of his face, but Arthur would know those eyes anywhere. Across canyons, from miles away. In the dead of night, the sky black and starless, it doesn’t matter; Arthur can still feel him watching.

    Summary

    He thinks of John last night, on his back flicking through the pages with the faintest look of wonder on his face. Of the way he’d clutched it close when Arthur had tried to pull it away. It’s enough to make his sore heart ache, and he wonders why he does this every time.
