dude Posted November 18, 2007 Report Share Posted November 18, 2007 Hi Gang, We have been expanding at an amazing rate this year... so much so that keeping the AwesomeDude site up to date has become a second, almost fulltime job for me. But as long as we have your support... all those behind the scenes at AwesomeDude will continue to keep the site up to our standards and to your expectations. This week, we welcome two new authors and their stories. One Moonlin NIght by Steven Keiths is now at the top of our Newest Serial Novel list and along with editor Sharon will be bringing us a new chapter each week for the foreseeable future. Written by an Australian, but set in the US is Hustler by Caleb, is a short story in two parts -both of which we've brought you this week. Please check out both these stories and welcome their authors by your comments to them. John, Bill & Priscilla Part Two by AJ has been added concluding the Story Time trilogy. My First Thanksgiving by Altimexis has been posted just in time for the American holiday and is the first of his two-part Naptown Tale about a gay boy who immigrates from Pakistan to America to escape a fatwa. This story is told from Altaf's viewpoint, starting from him coming out to his Jewish soon-to-be boyfriend, going back to fill in the back story of his discovery in Pakistan and his escape with his "ammi" to London, then Detroit and finally "Naptown". It is a touching story of love and acceptance, interspersed with his acclimation to a new culture. This week marks the posting of the final chapter of Heart Of The Tree by Graeme. This final chapter has been dedicated to Codey who left us just two weeks ago today, and has been posted simultaneously at AwesomeDude and Codey'sWorld. It is a great story, a fine effort. Thanks Graeme.
