Frontier Psych editor Keith Meatto asked me, when he heard I was going to SXSW, to write something more… overarching and thoughtful.” Or something like that. I was so dizzy and exhausted when I got back from Austin I became one of those nightmare writers, who kept stressing about word count and trying to beg more time before the deadline. I’m grateful that Keith stuck it out with me, and am very proud of the pieces that ran. It’s a two-parter, and it skews a little heavy. Part 1 is here and Part 2—skewing heavily heavy—is here.
