“Roses at his Feet” by Todd Robinson
Todd Robinson (aka “Big Daddy Thug”) resurrected ThugLit this year as a paying market, which would be reason enough to take note of him. But he has also just released his first collection of short stories, Dirty Money. “Roses at his Feet” is the story of a small-time mugger whose latest victim “seems strangely under-intimidating.” The story was originally written under the pseudonym “Dana Frittersmash,” for easons Robinson explains in his foreword, but in the era of “Benedict Cumberbatch,” the name doesn’t even sound particularly bogus. “Roses at his Feet” is one of the stories in Robinson’s new collection, Dirty Words, available here. You can also read the story linked from Robinson’s site, here.
See you tomorrow!
