A brand new Randall Lee Novella! "Here's the thing, this isn't going to be some How-Randall-Got-His-Groove-Back midlife crisis tale, and it doesn't involve fearless kung fu warriors engaged in exotic hand-to-hand combat; it isn't a swooning ballad to the love of my life, though I truly hope she features in it. This time there are no suave, wise-cracking good guys, no humorless, drug-addled bad guys. The story I want to tell you is all about how I learned to sleep at night, to close my eyes without seeing cold places and dead eyes... how I dragged whatever was left of me up out of the dark, finally. That's the story I want to tell, because that's the story I need to hear. I want to know how it ends..." Returning to normal life after his dark days in the depths of the Jianghu hasn't been easy for Randall Lee. With big changes coming in his future, though, Randall offers to help rehabilitate an injured friend, only to find that the need for healing goes far deeper than he ever expected. Bridging the events of Jianghu and the upcoming Randall Lee Mystery, The Art of War, Eating Bitter is a quiet story of resilience and perseverance, punctuated with Randall's trademark humor and more

Charles Colyott lives on a farm in the middle of nowhere (Illinois) with his wife, 2 daughters, cats, and a herd of llamas and alpacas.

Nevertheless, he has appeared in Read by Dawn II, Dark Recesses Press, Withersin magazine, Horror Library Volumes III & IV, Terrible Beauty, Fearful Symmetry, and Zippered Flesh, among other places. He also teaches a beginner level Tai Chi Ch'uan class in which no one has died (yet) of the death touch. You can get in touch with him on Facebook, or email him at Unlike his llamas, he does not more
