Richard E. Riegel Richard E. Riegel's blog:
I remember when I asked my old buddy Gary Lee Porter to look at one of my short stories and see if he had any ideas for graphics, you know, maybe turn it into a graphic novel.

Yeah, no, not a poet. In case you somehow missed that. But I did finish reading—typos, ahoy!—and I've discovered that I know how to write a very sad book. Sorry, for that.



On a slightly happier note, I'm almost 8,000 words into N2—no, it doesn't have a title yet—and with tonight's Fall Out Boy/wr...
