New Craft Essay - 'Consider This: Coping'

When historians look back on our generation's most prolific writers of fiction, names like Stephen King, Elmore Leonard, and Kurt Vonnegut will be at the top.

Read Chuck's Introduction To 'Burnt Tongues: Stories'

While Chuck's next novel Beautiful You won't be released until October of this year, a couple months earlier another project he's been heavily involved with-- a passion project, if you were-- will become available. Burnt Tongues: Stories is an anthology of transgressive fiction written by... well... you. The fans. Constructed over many years, these stories were a part of Chuck's online writers workshop. While the workshop shut its doors a few years back, for a long time it thrived on this website, with Chuck reading and critiquing the best works each month.

Commentors there are now begging Richard to re-edit the entire film like this. There's even been passionate suggestions to start a Kickstarter to fund the effort.
