Most of these stories are raw with few redeeming qualities. They are all gritty because that’s how things were at the time, still are, and always will be. Even the happy endings are unlike most happy endings. Having provided you with that caveat, I invite you to accompany me as I live and work in San Francisco's Tenderloin district during the 1960's and 70's.
I have used the street/drug/sex language of the Tenderloin at the time. Some of the words and phrases may not be familiar to the reader so I have placed a glossary tab at the upper right of every page.
Hold your cursor on any of the above tabs of short, medium, or longer stories above to view the dropdown menu and pick your poison.
These stories are based upon actual events, real people and places. Fifty years have gone by - now I can finally tell the story . . .
