My troublesome child “Released” is now live at Outsider Writers Collective.
FROM THE EDITOR:
“Released” by Richard Thomas
by Pela Via
“I lie on the soft floor, arms numb, darkness wrapping around me like a tight jacket.”
This story gives a good taste of Richard’s longer work—it’s concentrated, dense and visual, and it’s eerily smart. There are layers to his stories, something to gratify and disturb every part of one’s brain. Masterful insanity in prose that charms, I’d fear him if he wasn’t so goddamn likable.
