Round 1 – The Road That Led to “No Place”


No Place Bar in St. Joe, where the fights took place
The official “Round 1” of LOWER THAN LOW IN ST. JOE, like the introductory piece, was originally published at, and what I’m trying to do with this is set the stage as to exactly who three of the main characters in this sad drama are – namely, the promoter, the “victim,” so to speak, and the victim’s opponent, who, in the opinion of some, turns out to be one of the heroes. Ultimately you’re going to have to judge everything for yourself. So basically, this is how we first got to where we are. The subsequent chapters will be published exclusively here at And you’ll see some navigation for all of this in the right sidebar.

So to begin Chapter 1, just click either of the links.
