      I’ve already re-read it three times. Once when I found it. Once when I posted it to my blog at ieb.panoptican.org and now a third time when you posted it. WHEN WILL IT STRIKE NEXT?

      holy f, he writes a bit like damian dressick…just owns the story, holds my face against it, changes things for me.

      Like David Peak, I just want to write and write now. Also makes me want to go into the Everyday Genius archives and make my story better or ask Adam to pull it.

      I have a different view of “Modern Love” by Stephen Graham Jones. So I’d be curious to know (1) from those who really admire this story, what – specifically – makes this a great story to you and (2) is this even a “story” and, if so, why?

      Thanks.
