You know of DuWayne Brayton as the over the top highly opinionated commenter who is always giving everyone a hard time on this blog, or when not here, on his own blog. (Which, by the way, has recently undergone a style change, and I like it.)
Well, you may not know that DuWayne writes fiction now and then. Have a look at this piece, “Leaving.”
I’m afraid the people who really need to read this are not going to. So pass it around, please. It’s quite good .
