Comes Home by IRA KENNEDY & HOLLY SCOTT
" The regulars that sat at the bar gave Later Billy that
look they always give each other when they bring their women into the place during the
day. Most of them were supposed to be somewhere else. Like, maybe, working. At that moment
there was a crack of lightning and thunder. Then the power all over town went down."
That Ain't a Word by IRA KENNEDY
"You sure got a way with words," Cousin Luke
said one inauspicious day. Course Luke was limited to some fifty-seven words, including
twenty-nine of the cussing kind. "You oughtta send some of them off to those magazine
types," Luke advised, "They pay top dollar for yarns like that."
Take by HOLLY SCOTT
Later Billy takes to writin' and Lacey
takes to cleanin'. Lacey sat in the middle of the
living room, looking into the dining room that had now been converted into a
"writers room", by Later Billy. Open, on the table was a dictionary,
several paperback books and enough paper strewn around the once cozy round oak table to
completely obscure its original use.
