Another Dentist

You can now read the PDF for the Falling from the Sky anthology online, including my story, Camera Shy.

Falling from the Sky PDF

After you read it, donate here or buy the printed book.

Last night I finished the rough draft on a story about a dentist who visits a psychic. Help me think of a title. In the running:

1. Dentist
2. Whitening
3. Wisdom Teeth
4. Root Canal

C’mon, there have to be some other good dental terms out there.

Hey, man -- sorry about the delete, but looks like you got it. Thought I was logged into someone else's blogger account.

Gosh, it's hard to say without knowing more about the story.

P.S.: I am reading Revolutionary Road. Wow!

"Non-Intravenous Conscious Sedation" is catchy.

Henry Baum said...

Stupidly, I didn't check these comments for a while. Hey, Spiral. Good to see you still come back here. Currently, I'm going with the completely dry but appropriate: Dentist. Though I like Conscious Sedation. And something to do with spitting or decay.

Yo man, i would suggest a title but depends on you to get it. Well, title is The Care Of The Teeth. In which also could become a wonderful title to set.

Doris, for someone who promised to review my novel, and didn't, you sure spam my blog a lot.

Anonymous, I like the idea, but the story's in English.

Hey Henry, I'm a few weeks late here, but my dentist gave me something called 'Twilight Sleep' which I am guessing was simply a valium injection before a particularly elaborate root canal. I thought it had a nice pleasant ring to it, and sure enough I had basically an out-of-body, vaguely paranormal experience. The canned dentist office music played Hello Its Me by Todd Rundgren, one of my all-time fav songs, so that made it all the more bizarre.

Cool, Heather, you might have the winner. Right in line with the story. Last word: sleep. Who knew this would work.

Maybe I'll post the story here, even if I send it out, or instead of sending it out. Meantime, read Camera Shy. Please.

For anyone keeping score, I've been working on my novel now so not making any music, blogging obsession turning to ash, for the moment.

5. Where is the scene taking place?
Scenes on the telephone are weak, although it’s almost impossible to omit them. Scenes in most coffee shops and bars are weak. Take that scene in the bar and put it on a ski slope, a sailboat or in a factory that manufactures frozen enchiladas.
