thanks for the heads up on that, bill. i'll have a look at the archives. you saying, "slim's stuff is pretty raw," is scary, considering your comment is probably relative to the other books that are talked about here. there's some pretty brutal stories here. of course, the
"raw" you speak of might be more sex than violence for this book.
