    Summary

    Brad has had a date written on a scrap of paper in his wallet for over a year and it's a date that he intends to keep. A journey myth of sorts – Brad sets out across America, pausing at various points across the way. What he can never really know is this: that he is not the first man who came home from the war to make this kind of journey. His path criss-crosses with those of three other men; Joe Liebgott who doesn't know where he's going, Tunny Clarke who doesn't really know who he is and Robert Leckie, who's struggling with what he needs to leave behind. It's a much a story about America as anything – a story about distance and how you live with it...a story about what it's like to come home and find a country that big waiting to be crossed. And nothing ever really changes.

    Hillbilly's guitar is his constant companion, a keepsake and a totem, and what's more, a way of saying things he won't or can't say any other way.

    Summary

    Sledge wakes up on the lawn with no real memory of the night before. Snafu is more amused than helpful. In other words, a normal weekend for the two.

    Summary

    The thing is, he tries not to think about Sledge too much. If he does, it’s mostly memories – the first time Sledge accepted a cigarette, the way he smiled when Snafu first called him ‘Sledgehammer’, about feeling Sledge’s skin under his fingertips. Little things, things without too much pain attached to them. Things he can separate from the dirt, and the maggots, and the death.

    Summary

    Sledge was having a really bad day. It started out fine actually, but a series of events consisting of a slow and crowded bus commute, an unfortunate mixup at the coffee shop, and several angry clients had left him with a dark cloud he just couldn't shift. Oh, and there was also the matter of the beaten-up Cajun sex-god currently inhabiting his bed.

     

    (Title inspired by Dreamwork's How To Train Your Dragon, mostly because Snafu's mannerisms reminded me of Toothless and the idea stuck. This is in no way a retelling of the movie)

    Summary

    Eugene hopes that Snafu regrets it, leaving him like that, without a word. Leaving him at all, even. Hopes that Snafu feels even a hint of what Eugene feels - like he can’t function right on his own anymore, he’s spent so long with Snafu always within reaching distance. Would he sleep better, he wonders, if he knew he would see Snafu’s face when he woke? Who can tell.

    Summary

    You don't know fear until it's crippling your outright ability to breathe and cope. Until it's a slippery-warm living thing in your guts and under your skin and behind your eyes, roiling and roiling, threatening to become all you know, all you are.

    Summary

    His parents and most strangers call him Eugene. If you knew him for long enough, or from a time that's almost certainly gone now, you'd shorten that to Gene. It could be his favourite if he had to have one. Men and boys alike in this part of the world just call him Sledge.

    Summary

    His knife's in that big, mean Bowie style, like a sneering half grin, like a bear claw. It's silver-white tip to butt, catches the sun like a mirror. A comfortable hard wood grip, thin and smooth, makes the fact that it's heavier than any knife Eugene's held before a mite easier.

    Summary

    Snafu's gotten out of control before, banged in some bruises, split a lip or two, caused concussion, caused mayhem, but he's always stopped himself. As if as an after thought. Never let it get to this, his breath fire storm hot against Eugene's collar and the tone of his voice thin, stretched bare.
