Huckleberry Finn's Anniversary
Today marks the 124th anniversary of Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. As a bit of a celebration I thought I'd post a link to a short story I published in the April, 2008 edition of Why Vandalism?
My first published work, this story centers around Huckleberry Finn as an old, retired Indian fighter.
I’ve always believed that Huck was ultimately a tragic figure, set apart from the society that would accept him by the truths he’d learned on the Mississippi, but still too roughly bred for the society that would agree. I envisioned a tired and beaten down man who’d long ago taken up the bottle his father had found solace in.
You can read the story online here.

Douglas, thanks for the link to your story. I respect you for tackling both the subject and the dialect, which I thought you handled well. I'm not from the deep south, but nothing rang really false for me as I read.
Also, thanks for calling our attention to Huck's anniversary.
Congratulations on being published. It's great to have authors hangin' out on MobileRead.

Ahhh, yes. I bought your novel, "Sex and Murder," from Fictionwise. For those who don't know, this is a book about depravity, violence, and craziness. The protagonist is a wonderful killing machine. I LOVED IT!
