My blog this week includes links to a free Jack Reacher story from Lee Child and short story writing advice from Kurt Vonnegut.

Recent weeks included:

advice from the acquisitions editor at magazine Pulp Literature;

an essay covering almost everything you wanted to know about cops’ concealment holsters;

two free stories by Mike Bowditch series author Paul Doiron;

the usual wicked mix of links to reviews, new and old releases, free reads, and more.
