This audio first appeared on CrimeWAV with guest host Mark L. Berry–my boy! Thanks, Mark!

“To the Bone” was first published in The Booked. Anthology back in 2013. Thanks much to the Booked. Podcast guys, who’re also on Patreon here.

Backstory on the story: I don’t know where this one came from, but I wrote it back in SF about 5 years ago. It feels very Faulkner-influenced and, since I’ve just picked up Go Down, Moses again for the first time in a LONG time, I thought of it. Where did these characters come from, Duncan and Estep? Neither of them PC or forgivable? Perhaps the story “Pantaloon in Black” holds the answer. Also, if you’re looking for a good read you could do a lot worse than to start there.

Anyway, that’s my background on this one and a reading tip for the month.

Thanks for listening! If you’d like to find more of my new audio work, head to my Patreon page here.
