(Short Story plus a Bonus Novella) "The Sink" is my take on one of Hemingway's better-known stories about hunting in Africa. Needless to say, my more feminist-minded first-readers did not take kindly to it, although others found it to be an insightful portrait of what can go wrong when the interpersonal dynamics within a marriage change in an unexpected way.

Memories can be dangerous. They have the power to cast long shadows. They can ensnare the unwary and the desperate. They can trap and hold captive. In that sense, they're a bit like outhouses, which also trap and hold captive. Escape is seldom easy, even with the help of an cybernetic dog and an android call girl.
