Technically I haven't read this entire book because essentially it is an encyclopedia on all things food-related. An all encompassing and infallible food encyclopedia.

Curious what exactly the hell a canape is?

Found in the garbage pile of cookie cutter detective novels and Tom Clancy books that are up for grabs in the ship's free book box, I found Joe R. Lansdale's Freezer Burn. An exerpt from the back cover pretty much tells all you need to know:

Everyone I'm sure is well familiar with Hunter S. Thompson's legendary viewpoints on journalism and life. Idolized by many, Thompson was always interesting to me but never really caught on as one of my heroes.

In Your Sleep (Horror)
7 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: I got the idea for this story while laying in a sleeping bag while camping one time. Excited I told the person falling asleep next to me (who I had just met that day) the idea and I'm pretty sure she thought I was a weirdo ever since. This is far and away the longest story I've ever written, coming in at 17 or so pages.
Maybe Forgotten (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: This was from another short-story-write-off while me and my friend were bound to Kyoto on a train. Incidentally, the stipulation we had to contend with was that the whole thing had to take place on a train. The main character's name is again taken from comic books.
Mourning Valerie Toomes (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:33PM
Description: This is a very simple little story I wrote almost as soon as I thought of it. Some of the details are a little scuzzy and out of focus, but I think the last couple of paragraphs make up for it. I picture the town and period of Aldonville like the town and period from The Sandlot.
The Last Time (Religion & Spirituality)
0 chapters   —   updated Mar 27, 2008 01:41AM
Description: From the first short-story-write-off from a couple years ago. The stipulation that we had to use was the word "screen" in any of it's incarnations. I took the main character's names from comic books, as I am apt to do.
