"I woke up driving and screaming." is the first line in the first story of Twelve Times Lost, a collection 12 short stories by Kevin Fanning.
Back in 2002 kfan offered the "photocopy run" print in exchange for candy instead of money. I sent him some Kinder Surprise because it's banned in the US.
I never kept my copy of Twelve Times Lost on my bookshelf. It's really just some paper folded in half and doesn't really have a visible spine; on a bookshelf it would get lost between other books and I'd never see it again.
A book about being lost shouldn't be on a bookshelf.
Twelve Times Lost was something I definitely wanted to read again, so I hid it. I hid it underneath something, where it wouldn't be visible, but would be easy to find when I would clean up my room. That would give me an excuse to stop everything and re-read it, since no one really wants to clean anyway.
I thought it would be fun and clever to hide it again and repeat this process twelve times. This would probably be a better story if I did do that. There really was no point to being fun and clever.
Instead I put it my bedside table, in the second drawer underneath a really nice notebook I got for a present a long time ago that I've always meant to write in but never have because it's too nice, but mostly because I don't know what to write. I read Twelve Times Lost when I feel lost. I can find it whenever I want.
Twelve Times Lost is now back in print and availble from So New Media for only $5 including shipping. It really is some of kfan's best work. This one will go on my bookshelf. I'll keep the photocopy run under my notebook.
