    Summary

    “What’s this?” James asks. He’s lifted a map off Thomas desk, and below is a neat pile of papers in Thomas’ handwriting. A quick glance reveals that they’re poems, full of inkblots and crossings out, some more legible than others – James knows how Thomas begins to scribble when he gets excited.

    They’re breathtakingly beautiful - as Thomas’ words always are, as everything about him is. But thy are different, too; the previous poems James has read had been full of wit, clever turns of phrase, puns, and double entendres, just like his arguments. But these – they’re love poems. Written with passion and adoration, the force of it evident in every stroke of the pen, every word.

    “They’re addressed to a man,” he points out the obvious.

    Summary

    It’s not a vengeance against a fucking video game. She is not making plans to go to the jungles of Peru and to trek Patagonia in order to hack away at its wilderness, at its deadliness, and scream back in its face for making her afraid.

    It isn’t an escape, either. She is definitely not running away from anything, or anyone.

    Summary

    In the opposite corner, his eyes came to rest on a man, sitting alone in a booth. His hair was swept into a neat wave, his suit jacket cast over the back of the booth, sleeves rolled up to his elbows as his eyes scanned a newspaper clasped in long fingers. Even across the room, through the smoky haze, the languid jazz, the crowd of people, Sonny watched the man look up for a moment, and their eyes locked. His throat went dry.

    Summary

    Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014
    “Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

    Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” SPIN.com – Feb. 2015
    “Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale."
