crooked letters are non-fiction pieces- mainly autobiographical in nature, often slightly experimental in form- sent to subscribers via email starting in 2005. The idea was to write an essay a week, which, obviously, did not happen, but I think I will get 52 crooked letters written and posted at some point or the other.

The number system is somewhat haphazard, because I would start letters and not finish them but feel like the number was reserved for those unfinished thoughts. I also got pretty dang sick in 2006 and lost track of where I was in my numberings and just guessed. I'll go back and fill in the missing numbers later.

Reading over some of these pdf's I realize there are some significant typos, which are annoying as all get out but will not be fixed until later.
