A Hindershot of Calion

Audiobook narrator (and author in his own right), Dane Elcar, made an impossibly good recording of Schuler Benson’s short story, “A Hindershot of Calion,” from Benson’s Alternating Current collection of short stories, The Poor Man’s Guide to an Affordable, Painless Suicide. Have a listen, then go buy the book because it’s so incredible!

Twelve stories, fraught with an unapologetic voice of firsthand experience, that pry the lock off of the addiction, fanaticism, violence, and fear of characters whose lives are mired in the darkness of isolation and the horror and the hilarity of the mundane. This is the Deep South: the dark territory of brine, pine, gravel, and red clay, where pavement still fears to tread.
