Larry:

35 years ago this December, some young drunk broadside a Honda Civic with his Mach 1 Ford Mustang, killing a lovely woman and send a husband and father on a path that was so unlike every lesson he had learned from his parents.

In some ways, it was as if he had been launch from a world he knew into an alternative universe where everything had changed; none of it for the better.

Yesterday, this gentleman stumbled across a series of neo-pulps on Amazon.com, which lead him to the world of Dieselpunks, and a place where, at least in his imagination, told him he had final found his way home.

I only hope that, some day, the rest of me will be return to that world.
