I'm not usually in on the best gossip, but...Nicky's latest opus "When Angels Wept Blood" is now out in circulation. For example, Black Bed Sheet Books, a company started by Nicholas Grabowsky and/or Downwarden (I'm a little unclear on the relationship there), has a copy. Downwarden is the place that posted Nicky's awful "Insect", so it's no surprise Nicky tried them with this novella. [Edited to clarify: Nicky submitted to BBSB. I don't know if he got accepted or not, just that BBSB has -- or had -- a copy sitting in an Inbox somewhere.]
We all know that Nicky's stories are littered with Gary Stu's. "Passenger" from Tabloid Purposes IV tops them all with no fewer than three, all of whom interact with each other. WAWB continues that tradition. Nicky's latest obsession has been metal music, and guess what...one of his characters is a "metalhead".
Of course, there's the obligatory Goth character. A girl.
Nicky also butchers history and religion by mixing Christian mythology (angels) with Greek mythology (Charon), nevermind that the heydey of Greek culture and mythology was about five centuries before Christianity was even a twinge in Mary's womb.
All in all, it's the usual mess.
