April 14, 2021 Back Road Previously published in the anthology Allasso volume 2 in 2012. One of the most emotional pieces I've ever composed. Just thinking back on why I wrote the story brings me to tears. The website no longer exists and the publication has ended, so all may now enjoy. This is the final text retrieved from a web archive.
