    Damn, this month is going way too fast! Doesn't help when I'm obsessed with finding a job; tends to cloud over everything. So I doubt I'll make it on time, but that's ok; at least I'm doing something.

    Richard Kadrey's "Sandman Slim" books don't have chapters, and they move along quite nicely. Of course, he also basically tells a story from start to finish and doesn't really jump around in time and...
