Links for short pieces from summer (admin blues pt.1)

Over summer, the Lawrence and Gibson facebook page has been linking to some of our favourite short pieces by people who have published with us (loathe as I am to call them Lawrence and Gibson authors, as if there was an institution that lay claim to them rather than individuals who lay claim to the corpus of the collective).

If you haven't found us on Facebook, why not LIKE us? (a) because you do like us, but don't like facebook, (b) because you do like our books, but don't like these lousy short pieces or (c) because you are our competition and are only here to see what the whipper-snappers are doing so you can emulate it and in all reality would not condescend to liking us. Or (d) all of the above. Or (e) because you find LIKE and LOVE to be mutually exclusive and so wont have a mite of our LIKING. Any way you like it... its alright with us. And so if you do not wish to be regularly updated by the old FB, then see below for periodically update links on the stories we've been linking to.
