Bill Yarrow – Oct 01, 2010

Sad case is right. Thanks for commenting on "Son of Uncle Sam," Kim. In an earlier version, there was no moustache. You're right--now it's creepier.

Sly V. Rourke – Sep 24, 2010

Thank you, Kim. Since I'm a gentleman, I won't ask for your guilt movies! I have about 100 others. My new one is "The Wrestler" -- I'm not ashamed to admit I like it (it's a brilliant movie) but I'm ashamed to say how often I can (and do!) watch it. Really glad this piece works for you. D

"Thanks for introducing us to the rich world of the Fauves."
Beware. There's nothing historical or factual about these Fauves. These are the fictional Fauves who exist only in my head. But the art of the real Fauves is well worth getting to know!

Frank Vander Rasky – Sep 05, 2010

Larry Strattner – Sep 03, 2010

Kim, delighted that you read and enjoyed "Che at Barnes & Noble." Thank you.

Robert Crisman – Sep 02, 2010

Kim, thanks for your comments on The '08 Campaign and the Katrina story.
History is the most important subject of all, because if you don't know who, what, and where you've been, how can you know who, what, and where you are now? Yet year after year high school students point to history as the subject they hate most. Just one more indication of just how radically fucked-up America society is.

Matthew A. Hamilton – Sep 02, 2010

Thank you for reading Afghanistan and for the *. Much appreciated.

Finnegan Flawnt – Dec 19, 2009

kim just made a comment on waiting for the light in hidden workshop. unusually for me i'm giving quite a lot of detail because the story touched me. it's a great scene and imagery. it looks like a small part of something larger though...hope my remarks are helpful. i am new at giving remarks and i dont have the thickest skin myself so...just wanted to say i really liked it and my thoughts were made in that spirit!

hi kim,

so pleased you are here at fictionaut--and thanks again for reading my work.

i see you have made a short---the narrator of my nere novel, LEAVING TELLURIDE, is a failed filmmaker, a guy who made a few shorts that caused some buzz at sundance, then dropped out of sight, and wound up on wall street (sigh).

i look ofrward to reading/viewing your work.

go canada.
