Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 9

An excerpt: “Liars and thieves,” Sige said. “And now murderers. That world is at once very true and also pure fiction. I wonder if there’s anything in that aesthetic which might be considered true: murderers born of lies and thievery. Would it be that such careful thieves created a logic within their lies which is […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 8

An excerpt: “What are you talking about?” I said. “Your client is dead! I mean, now what?” “The doctor has also already vaporized.” “Vaporized?” I said. “How do you mean?” “I suppose he also is dead or a long way from the arm of the American law,” Sige replied. “I must admit that I’m terribly […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 7

An excerpt: In a lovely baritone, and full of the plenipotentiary authority of the law itself, he intoned a few introductory passages, according to form, looked over my paperwork, then asked ineluctably, “Do you know why I’ve pulled you over?” “Drinking and driving?” I proffered. “What? No, I pulled you over for failing to signal,” […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 5

An excerpt: “By all means, eat,” he said. “It’s just that…” I hesitated. “It’s just that I’ve been eating a lot of garbage for a while. Pizza is a luxury now, while my wife and kids stay with her parents.” “At least tell me the garbage you’ve been eating is name brand.” I hung my […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 4

An Excerpt: “I think I’m following,” I said. “Good fellow!” Sige said. “Mrs. Ciminelli further claims that her suspicions were aroused merely by a woman’s intuition. I remember her expression clearly: ‘I simply wasn’t feeling unwell.’” “They want her out of the house,” I said. “At a particular time of day—a predictable time of day. […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 3

An Excerpt “So,” I said. “A private detective, but not a Seamus. Are you in the line of Sherlock Holmes?[1]” “Pff,” Sige retorted, furrowing his brow. “The marvel of Sherlock Holmes is not his genius, but his encyclopedic capacity. Moreover, the thrill of the storytelling is not in the method of the character, but in […]

Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 2

Excerpt I said. “Your hosts have good taste in furniture. It’s all properly sized, proportioned, and made of solid wood, none of this cheap laminate that passes for home furnishing these days. I particularly like the maple end table, which contrasts with all the darker-colored wood and upholstery. I’ll bet it shines like the sun […]

The Adventures of Sigegard Ainsworth, Chapter 1

Excerpt: In my mind, it seems incumbent—I’m at a loss for any other way to express it—what Sige has managed to do must be told. The subtlety with which he approaches the human condition and the artifacts of their existence is of such a nature that one is filled with hope, that not only is […]

Grayson’s

An Excerpt: Sherri hung up the phone. “John Cyril is coming here!” “You don’t say…” said Tom. “Do you need to go home to change into your poodle skirt?” Sherri gave Tom another dirty look. “You’re just jealous he went to college and became a doctor.” “Shucks,” said Tom, “anybody can go to college. It […]

A Cord of Three Rotten Strands

Please consider becoming a patron. An excerpt: She giggled and threw a pillow at him as he left the room. She sat up and began to dress, looking into the mirror as she did. “You’re a beautiful girl,” she heard her father say. “Such a beautiful girl.” But then Mom left him, and he didn’t […]
