Innocent Again

by James Bruen, Jr.

I just read it.

Oh wow. Yes. Wonderful.

  1. ***SPOILERS***
    I thought that this was a great story and I'm really glad that we're publishing work like this. I just don't know why he had to kill off Mrs. Smith.

  2. I didn't really think of it. I figured he was much older now...

  3. ***!!SRELIOPS***

    He didn't kill her. That would only be true if she had actually died in the story. The story takes place when the hero is very old, and a widower. I think it makes the ending more poignant.

  4. The way I see it, if someone is referred to as "dead," even if the death takes place "offstage" and in the past, the author killed off the character.
    I just like to think of fictional characters I really like as immortal. It's like what Homer Simpson said a week ago after reading the sad ending to a Harry Potter-esque book. "No man should have to outlive his fictional wizard!."

  5. Chris, I am TIME magazine's Person of the Year this year, and that means you're not allowed to disagree with me.

    But you're TIME's person of the year too, so that puts us in a bit of a conundrum.

  6. You know, lots of people were allowed to disagree with Hitler and Stalin when they were TIME's Persons of the Year.
