"Sammy Levison was fourteen when he discovered that he could shit little Jesuses."

That's the best first line of any short story I have ever read. The author is James Sallis and the story is "The Genre Kid". If I never finish writing a novel but can write a first line like that I will be happy. A polarizing piece of fiction that causes you, whether you hate it or like it, to read more. Man that's some good stuff. Mike, don't let your Mom read this.
