"Flesh Wounds" was a syndicated column that appeared in several Western "hip urban weeklies" during the early nineties. It was originally created for the San Diego cultural review "Revolt In Style" and expanded (including the creation of Jessica Creager's great artwork) for the Seattle "Scroll". Much of the work in the eBook collection first appeared in the Seattle "Stranger",San Diego "Reader".SF Bay Area's "East Bay Express", and the Seattle music mag, "Voltage".
A cult item at the time (Hunter Thompson first dubbed it "yuppie noir", a name that stuck), "Flesh Wounds" was resurrected and an online, blog/RSS serial, but now appears in an exciting and innovative eBook format for any Windows computer, with a low price enabled by the magic of download.
This is dark stuff, set in prisons, asylums, bloody street corners, gruesome crime scenes. But there is a faint glow of redemption about it, the aspiration that keeps all of us elevated above the mess of flesh that lacerates us before it kill us.
