RETREATS FROM OBLIVION is RESURRECTED!




SUGAR WATER by Charles Willeford at RFO
READ IT NOW.

It's my pleasure to announce the return of Retreats From Oblivion: The Journal of NoirCon with the publication of "Sugar Water," a lost story by the great Charles Willeford, and to introduce myself, Matthew Sorrento, your new humble Editor-in-chief (many thanks to publisher Lou Boxer and fellow-in-noir, Andrew Repasky McElhinney): "It took another ten years before I actually learned how to make sugar water. It takes a combination of sugar, blood, sweat, crushed hearts, burned archives, sweltering heat, icicles, molten steel, water, grape juice, gin, wine, melted cheese, cherries, and tears. Plenty of tears."
