    very terse, very disturbing, very delightful.

    These are fantastic. It makes me realize I have much further to go to be as twisted as you (and the kind of details necessary to write the kind of things I want to). Truly inspirational.

    Check your local library. If they don't have it, ask the librarian if they will order it. Most are usually open to suggestions.

    I will bookmark this thread, because CLV is one of my all-time favourite books and the Falconer section an amazing piece of literature in an already staggeringly epic novel.

    Thanks Warren!

    Just read the first one. I believe the words I am looking for are Jesus and Christ.

    These make me so happy. Too happy. It's a bad thing.
    "Falconer lit a match off the boy's penis, making him yelp, and ignited The
    Cigarette Of Victory."

    Do you have a notebook somewhere just full of these Falconer stories? Jesus Fuck do I ever love them all. You sir-- I call thee genius!

    Heh, I'm looking forward to reading these. Though not, I suspect, during my lunchbreak at work. Weird thing is, after my friend and I had both finished CLV, I said how much I'd love to see a Falconer series of some kind. At the time, we concluded that it was 'probably too far out, even by Warren's standards'. How wrong we were...

    Absolutely fantastic. Thanks for the link.

    These short tales made my day.
    Warped, twisted and utterly horrifically wonderful.
    Thanks for sharing them.

    When I read the chapter with Falconer in Crooked Little Vein I ran to the other room where the Wife was studying and stared yelling 'Falconer! He put fucking Falconer in the book! Listen to this!'. Of course, I probably read about twenty or thirty chapters to her, in their entirety out loud. But Falconer made the whole novel that much sweeter.

    Thanks for giving me a locating point for them, they're great little bits.

    When I read the Backmatter in Doktor Sleepless 6, the bit about the 100 word fiction stories made me think of these. I am ashamed to admit I couldnt remember the characters name.
    I do however use the phrase "Cigarette of Victory" as often as I can

    Thanks for linking to these

    I remember a story you wrote in your old livejournal account, I believe it was called,"THE NIGHT i WENT HUNTING WITH ELTON JOHN." Will you please link that story? I tried to find it, but was unable to. Though I did re-read the adventures of Cathcart Zen. which was HILarious.

    Yes--and the sequel could be the two reluctantly teaming up to defeat their mutual enemy: Stabbity Jones.
