Howard Perry has become a drunk - a skid row bum. It wasn't always so, and he has hopes of returning to be a respected university student. But now he spends his days washing dishes to buy enough booze to hopefully blackout at night. His only friend is a prostitute name Billie the Kid. But Billie is just a working girl, and it would be stupid for him to care too much for her.

Of course Perry isn't exactly making the smartest choices as he continues his downward spiral. And when he goes to borrow a drink from Billie's neighbor, who soon turns up murdered, things are looking even worse for Perry. Download and start listening now!

    " Classic male-escapism short story: booze, hooker with a heart of gold, and some good punches*. Enjoyed it.

    *more of a push than a punch, but close enough. "

About the Author
Author Fredric Brown

Fredric Brown (1906–1972) was the only writer to achieve equal prominence in the mystery and science fiction genres. His first foray into mystery, The Fabulous Clipjoint, won the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award for Best First Novel. Brown was also the acknowledged master of the short short story; the famous collection Nightmares and Geezenstacks demonstrates his consummate mastery of a form limited to no more than five hundred words. His short story “Arena” was the basis of a famed Star Trek episode; “Martians, Go Home!” was adapted for a 1992 film; “The Last Martian” was adapted for Serling’s Twilight Zone and starred Steve McQueen at the start of his career. Brown’s work, more than forty years after his death, is increasingly prominent.
