Sign-ups for fkficfest
will open this week! This week is also the 105th
anniversary of the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. Together, these facts bring me to April's recommendation, wiliqueen
's "July 22, 1916" (2010), which she wrote as one of the generous surprise-party treats at the end of FKFicFest 2010, and which builds on a real incident in San Francisco history, achieves the feel of a first-season flashback, and foreshadows Mai Chung's fate (in "Cherry Blossoms").
The six and a half hours between the sound of the explosion and sunset were among the longest of Nick's very long life.
I'd previously refrained from spotlighting any of the great FKFicFest stories as part of the recommendation-of-the-month project
, because we all read them just last year. But it's time for a reminder of how much fun the game was, don't you think? See you there!
