Feel free to drop him a line at aarondries.com. He won't bite. Much. ...more

Not this.”
Aaron Dries, Where the Dead Go to Die

'Cause this ain't my home anymore.”
Aaron Dries, The Fallen Boys

“Starke entered his house a detective, slipped off his shoes and became a husband and father. It was five in the morning. The world was blue. He went to the refrigerator and opened the door, looking for answers to mysteries he would never comprehend. So he closed it and settled for water instead.”
Aaron Dries, The Fallen Boys

“We're nothing. We're dust.”
Aaron Dries, The Fallen Boys
