What a Long Strange Trip It's Been...From the Editor's Laptop:
Welcome back to the May edition of Truckin' which includes a gem from David "Drizz" Aydt, perhaps one of my favorite stories in a very long time. Art Rosch is the latest writer to make his Truckin' debut with The Miracle of Highway Six. I'm ecstatic that Milton T. Burton is back with a fable and as always, Betty Underground's voice is always a pleasant and sultry mix to this month's issue. Oh, and I penned a little something inspired by a trip to Virginia.
Please spread the word about Truckin' and increase your karma tenfold by telling your friends and family about your favorite stories. The writers write for free so help me get the word about their bloodwork.
And as always, please let me know if anyone is interested in being added to the mailing list or perhaps you are interested in writing for a future issue.
Before I go, I have to sincerely thank the writers for exposing the soul to the world. Thanks for taking this leap of faith with me.
