"No good Southern fiction is complete without a dead mule."
--Val MacEwan, 1996

You'll find over 1,000 stories, poems, and essays online at www.thedeadmule.wordpress.com
Check out 21 years of Dead Mule wonder, start here and then, as stated above, go to our sister site: thedeadmule.wordpress.com for the Dead Mule Archives.
Trust in the process and know all good things come to those who mule.
Start anywhere in the Bits of Mule. You'll find the statements at the forefront of the "writing", be it poetry, short story, flash fiction or essay. These statements are the heart and soul of the Dead Mule. Enjoy!
We're slowly editing the writing, some of it is still fubarred but don't let that stop you from reading. We have 20 years of database entries to recover -- this Mule is worth the effort. We hope you'll agree it is worth the wait.
