Back when the much-missed David Thompson was alive and running Busted Flush Press, he was cool enough to invite me to write a story for an anthology of "geezer noir" called Damn Near Dead. Later, as a promotional tool (and just to be nice honestly) he provided me with a .pdf of my short story to give away for free. Recently a Blogpocalypse reader reminded me of this story, and I thought it a good idea to offer it again. For free. No strings attached. So if you'd like a copy of the story as a .pdf attachment, simply zap me an email: victor.gischler ["at" symbol] gmail.com.
