If you’re in Atlanta, you should stop by the Creative Loafing Fiction Contest Party on Thursday the 10th. It starts at seven. Two of my friends won first and second place this year. (Last year, if you remember, the great Brett Bender won first place.) This year, Laurah Norton Raines (she recruited me to work at SUB-LIT) placed first. Sam Miller (his work has appeared in McSweeney’s) placed second.
