My short story for June 2011 is now available to read on my website.
A ROADSIDE VISION (Copyright © Arliss Ryan, 1994) is from a collection of my short stories titled Suicide Notes. Some of the stories are purely fictional, while others are based on real historical people. Not all the stories end in a death; some characters choose life. This story was published in Santa Clara Review (Volume 82, Number 1, Fall/Winter 1994-95) and was inspired by a news snippet of an actual event.
