"Baby Idiots," Written, performed, edited and scored by Carl Robinette. Reading from LitCrawlLA 2019. The Baby Idiots series started as a simple story with a simple question in mind. How do you write a story about an irredeemable jerk you just have to love, even when that jerk is bashing someone's brains in?
In Carl Robinette's debut short story “The Hard Type,” originally published by Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, we meet Hank Garnier. A 14-year old boy in the badlands of rural California during the wild 1960s. Will Hank show us the path of righteousness when his manhood is tested violently, or will he succumb to his own viciousness?
