Truckin' October 2008, Vol. 7, Issue 10: What it feels like without me

Dr. is back with another great issue of the only e-zine you’ll ever need:

Thanks again for wasting your precious time with Truckin’. This month’s issue features veteran Truckin’ writers including the legendary Johnny Hughes with another Texas tale. Dusty Rhodes and John Hartness both make triumphant returns to the Truckin’ roster. Betty After Dark will whip you in a deviant frenzy with her latest sultry tale. And I shared a new piece of fiction called Maisy Wednesday.


Maisy Wednesday by
She always wore bright lipstick which brought out a little gleam in her lips. She frequently smiled, but never initiated any sort of conversation…

Happy Anniversary by
As we stood outside the courthouse in our newly wedded bliss (which also somewhat resembled the look of people who have just survived a tornado, as it happened much faster than we expected) we decided that since Suzy didn’t have to be at work for another couple of hours, we’d go have lunch. So we scraped together a few bucks and trundled over to a nearby McDonald’s…

A Lock of Bonnie Parker’s Hair by
They was real famous and in the newspapers and all robbing them banks, when banks were unpopular. I asked Bonnie for something to remember her by. We didn’t have a pencil for an autograph. She pulled this little pair of scissors out of her purse and gave me this… a lock of her hair…

Whiskey Kisses by
Held apart by distance and circumstance, brought together in soft voices, the pieces of who we are fill the room with every drink we pour. The gaps in our lives slowly closing as the light from the window crept into the room. There was something unavoidable that connected us, but the details were never as clear as they were this night….

What I Knew? by
Just walk up and ask her you idiot… You’ve been friends for four years… she doesn’t have a date and either do you… Quit being a pussy and ask her… Christ dude… what are you nervous about…

  1. There are two things that bothers me about Truckin’. 1) Why not register a domain and have it there instead of the bothersome blogspot, and 2) why don’t they understand that the readability – which should be the main focus on Truckin’ – sucks?

  2. 1) Pauly is afraid he’ll loose linkage
    2) The design was done by a friend of Pauly, which did a good job circa late-nineties. Design has changed
    3) Pauly is not a techie, he’s a hippie

    I agree on readability. We should also have a PDF containing all the stories in the current issue for easy printing. That requires server storage.
