These stories are cursed!
Contained in this mini-collection are five stories that killed the magazines that bought them.
Some writers kill more magazines than others. To kill a magazine is to sell them a story that never sees print because the magazine goes out of business first. The stories in this collection are from one writer who managed to kill multiple magazines in a short period of time. In an effort to break the curse, this collection was published as a chapbook back in 1998. Did it work? Maybe. The author hasn't killed any magazines lately, but then again, he's been focused on writing novels.

Lifestyles and subcultures are tools through which people say - to themselves and to others - who they think they are, who they think they are similar to, and who they think they are different from. Lifestyles and subcultures are ways which people adopt to look at their own lives, and to try to keep together different roles, different practices and different realms which they are involved in. Lifestyles and subcultures are lenses through which we, as observers, analyze society, and orientate ourselves within it, looking for similarities and differences among individuals and collectivities which allow us to understand their thoughts and their actions.
This book presents the main analytical approaches through which lifestyles and subcultures have been studied, and also proposes a new interpretative perspective. Today a growing panorama of social phenomena and processes possess intermediate characteristics with regard to those which in the past were identified either as lifestyles or as subcultures. The hypothesis is that consequently these phenomena could be explained and interpreted by means of an analytical framework developed by the intersection of these two perspectives, and the last part of the book is therefore devoted to the presentation of this innovative framework. This book provides new lenses and a fresh view to try to both grasp and understand a constantly-changing reality.
