You’ve all heard about the lottery winners who go bankrupt in five years, despite taking in a lump sum windfall that could wipe out their debts and establish a nice nest egg? They ain’t got nothing on the folks in FORTUNE: LOST AND FOUND.

Capital, cash, gold, lucre — money makes the world go round. But fortunes easily gained are often painfully lost. Since the very first king pressed his face onto the very first coin no single thing has led so many to ruin. Fortune, it seems, has a dark side and a wickedly evil sense of humor. Curses, plagues and misfortunes rain down on those who dare to tip the scales in their own favor. Fortune: Lost and Found, edited by L.S. Murphy and Kate Jonez, is a collection of tales about  money and wealth and the potentially horrifying consequences of gaining or losing it.

But my contribution, “The Plagiarist’s Wireless,” isn’t really about money. Something is lost and found, though. Or maybe found and lost. It’s about a band that disappeared in 1977, and a writer who wants to know why. I based the band, “Wolves n’ Sparrows,” on two of my favorite groups: Guns n’ Roses and Steppenwolf. I hope you enjoy.

So come August 15th, be sure to order your copy of FORTUNE: LOST AND FOUND in paperback ($13.99) or ebook ($2.99) formats through Amazon or Barnes & Noble–a small price to pay for a wealth of great stories.

  1. I read your story last night, and dug the hell out of it. Tragic, but hopeful in a weird way. Great read, man. Thanks!
