It's about boxing, gambling, addiction, and the inability to break away from the people in your life that constantly drag to your lowest point. There's a great fight scene between a hand and a sledgehammer. I won't tell you who wins, though.(less)

Now available: The Fix

the-fixBuster’s got a mean right hook. Or, he did, until he put Ronnie Piccolo’s lights out in the fourth round of a fixed boxing match. See, Buster’s also got a mean heroin addiction, and he needs the money. Unfortunately for him, his failure to take a dive runs him afoul of a psychotic bookie, his henchman, and a fucking heavy sledgehammer.


Jimmy “Two Tickets To” Paradise knows the sledge well. His c...

“The faded scent of stale smoke had cured into the gray wood over the years, but it suddenly seems more potent. As are distinct notes of ass and sweat and some combination of the two, drifting up to your newly sensitive sloth nostrils. Did you really smell this bad? Was it noticeable to others? Why the hell do you give a shit about it right now? You’re a fucking sloth. Shouldn’t you be worrying about that rather than whose olfactory sensibilities you might offend?”
Steve Lowe, You Are Sloth!
