New work for October will get you “High”

Posted in journal updates on October 17, 2011 by Tim Elhajj

Higher Ground, the new work for October, is an amazing piece.

Most people consider addiction a disease. But if it is a disease, the stories we read about addiction are unlike any ever told about, say, cancer or autism. With addiction, there is usually some element of contrition. Not that there shouldn’t be. After all, if it is a disease, it’s a disease like no other.

But when you come across a story that does something different, as Higher Ground does, it’s really quite amazing. Not an ounce of contrition. But it’s not a romantic story about the old days, either. And there is something spiritual here. Some sort of natural commune with nature.

Check it out. See if you agree.


Junk Editorial Staff Goes to the City by the Bay

Junk was stomping around San Francisco for LITQUAKE. Tim appeared on an author panel that was reviewed favorably in the Bay area press with such notable writers as Bucky Sinister, Alan Kaufman, Cary Tennis, Ali Liebegott, and Wendy Merrill.

But it wasn’t all work. Time was made for goofing off.


We saw the lights.


Left our mark on the hallowed walls.

Some San Francisco passerby giving Holly rabbit ears. Thanks, dude!

Were toyed with by the locals at the sights.


But when we came upon Turk and Taylor, we knew well to turn and head the other way. No need to tempt the fates!

Watch Junk for a new story next week from an anonymous but inspired author. We think you’ll like the “high” he has to offer.
