Author Jeff Somers drinks some Four Roses, struggles with the
world's worst memory, and reads his short story "The Hideous
Children of Mike Palmerton," which he wrote in 2003 and promptly
forgot all about, because he is incompetent.
Jeff Somers is the author of the Avery Cates series, the Ustari Cycle, Chum, and Writing Without Rules. He also generates 45% of all the freelance writing in the universe. In each episode, Jeff will pour a drink and discuss one of his works of short fiction, from inspiration to publication, and then read the damn thing with sound effects and asides. He invites you to pour a drink and settle in with him for a self-centered and self-deprecating tour of his literary universe. Also, take off your pants. They're a legacy of older, less illuminated times.
