I downloaded this last night to read offline - thanks for the PDF by the way. Just going to read a bit at a time while finishing the laundry, etc. Whoa! Four hours later I look up and it's 1 a.m. and I have to get up at 5. It was worth it. I can't tell you the last time a book or story has made me slow down and savor every line. It reads like The Virginian by Wister and it felt like I should be reading it out loud, like a Jane Austen novel. The TV and song references were fun and funny. Sam, you're so Adam, not Ben. But your descriptions of Sam and Dean - both behavioral and physical - were what kept me reading. That and the creeping horror of that town and the gathering storm. Sometimes wide open empty spaces are more terrifying than a dark room. Thank you. I'm going to be reading this one again and again - just not tonight. ;-)

As in 'I couldn't put it down?' There's something every writer hopes to hear. I'm so glad you like the elements I worked on especially (language, mood, characterization and nekkid). In that order, of course. Thanks!
