Last year I began writing a series of connected short stories, all taking place in or about the edge-of-the-law social center of a fictional town in Alabama, a pool hall called Sam's Place. Two of the stories have appeared in print, in one form or another, and this one is the latest. "What Might've Been" is the story that reveals the most about Sam, who isn't often a central character in these stories.
I've been promised a publishing contract for this collection. Hopefully I'll have something good to report soon on that.
