I've just updated the Fiction page under the "Mil's Writing" section of artistinsane.com to include excerpts from both the novelette and screenplay for which the short story, Of Julie and Better Men serves as prologue.
After you've had a chance to check them out, feel free to share your thoughts here.
P.S. The addition of these was inspired by the recent revisit of an old issue of my Mil Mania newsletter to share an opinion piece on the subject of mixing politics and art. You can check out the blog discussing all of this (and in which is linked the Mil Mania issue in question) by clicking here.
