Do I hear myself promising I won't do that again? That sleeve for the tablet was conceived in a frenzy to have anything to do with my hands. It was a predictably lackluster failure that will get recycled.
Looking through the river basket for inspiration, I see that it's been stocked with some pretty dark pickings for the next project.

The Monkeytown Murders feels almost lighthearted. Considering what frightens people most is challenging.
