David Hunt

Occasionally someone asks me to write something for them. If they’re a non-profit, I say, “Yes”. If they’re not, I say, “How much will you pay me?” If they say, “We’re offering to boost your profile as a writer”, I say, “Fuck off”.

Anyhow, here are some links to odds and ends I have written.
