Hello to all Justin Bog writing life blog followers . . . Today I’m revealing the opening paragraphs of my new horror novella, Sun Stroke. It’s a devious little chiller, and I hope you enjoy meeting the characters, the two- and four-legged kind.

" A new blog review of Sandcastle and Other Stories: The Complete Edition just came in today: http://bit.ly/MalloryHeartReviewsJust... "

“I don't correct her to let her know her backdoor wisdom yanks me deep into another country, where water runs uphill.”
Justin Bog, Sandcastle and Other Stories: The Complete Edition

“Now, a month later, I sit, foggy, a similar state of mind, in a different seafood restaurant with a locals-know-every-secret bar, two happy hour martinis downed, fidgeting with my napkin below the lip of the table, and I barely hear Wendy ask me another question. She brought a bag of them tonight.”
Justin Bog, The Conversationalist

“The woman with the cat complex is named Mrs. Alice Plesher, but she doesn't reveal her first name to him and Sai only finds out by accident, later. Mrs. Plesher calls the paper and is put through to Sai. He has no idea why although he could guess the new guy gets all of the reporter-on-the-beat drudgery assignments until proven worthy. Alice speaks haltingly as if hardened by age and her voice reveals a rasp. Sai pictures her in a long house dress from the fifties, wide pink and white stripes fading with age---a smock of beige over the dress, a multitude of cats clinging to the fabric like stick-ons.”
Justin Bog, A Great Distance

“Great things are not accomplished by those who yield to trends and fads and popular opinion.”
Jack Kerouac

“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“I think... if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“Respect was invented to cover the empty place where love should be.”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

“Rummaging in our souls, we often dig up something that ought to have lain there unnoticed. ”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
