what in the name of all things sacred are you still doing here on fictionpress? get off your ass and into the world, people actually need to read this.

your story offered points of view on fire and arson that i've been striving to create, and it was something brilliant and surreal to see these views in another's work. and in a wonderful work no less. this was beautiful. i really can't say any more.

honorata.

Excellent short story! I love the narrator. The idea of a well-read arsonist is great.

Holy shit, dude, you're a very talented writer. I loved this piece from beginning to end, it was at once beautiful and ugly, tragic and uplifting. I can't really think of any criticism right now, except for wondering how Malcolm escaped from the officer the first time if his body is so withered and atrophied. Perhaps a bit of an explanation on that would clarify. But very good job, it was thoroughly entertaining.
