What I mean is, you can read RADIATION now (free)

It’s at TQRStories.com. Click anywhere on the cover art, which is gorgeous, powerful, iridescent–looks like a living thing, really, and sends chills up my spine. Have you ever had that happen to you?

Q: How did it come into being?

A: At a bit of a loss as to the origins. Don’t want to freak the world by introducing myself as “Well, I saw this violin sonata triptych in my mind and followed the chanting words.”

There is never just one story but a splintered dozen or hundred and that’s what the human experience is. There is history. There is humanity. There is honor. That’s what I sought to share in slivers. A deep bow to those who came before me, and about whom I dare not pass judgment gentle or severe, whose lives were led, all of them, in dignity. I should be so lucky as to learn from them, fictive or living, and live likewise.

We all have stories we’ve heard from people we know. We can weave them into a living tapestry that touches and teaches us all. Here’s one example.
