Viktor Petrenko Rides Again

Bryon Quertermous has seen fit to publish another of my Viktor Petrenko stories over at Demolition Magazine. In this one, Viktor gets a beating. What's happens after that isn't so good either. Let's say it is another Viktor Petrenko love story. That means there's flowing blood in it.

Interestingly, this is another story that was inspired by the call a couple of years ago for a short story with a police auction theme. The one that ran way back when is still somewhere on my site. Try here. Not sure which is the better story, but I have a soft spot for the first one.

In any event, a Viktor Petrenko novel is in the works. Will anyone pay me for it? No idea. There are a couple of them. In one of them, Viktor gets out of jail and retrieves one of the items sold at the police auction from the suburban family of four that ultimately purchased it. Laughs all around.

Hope you enjoy.
