  • Expectations of the Bottle Deflty Swung

  • Whiskey and Sin

    The music occupied any and every space not occupied by the seething mass of gyrating bodies, all alcohol-fueled libido and swagger. Reston was as out of place as a possum in a cotillion, but they had a surprising stock of Jack, Jim, and Jameson behind ...

  • A Distillation of Despair

    He felt the cold glass in his hand, its contents refracting the tattered fabric of the armchair in which he sat. His mouth burned, his vision swam. Drifting throughout consciousness, he became aware of other figures in the room, conversing in quiet ton...
