Chapter 5 of my 1980s Santa Cruz-based mystery novel “A Study with Slugs”, “Canvassing the Crazies”–in which our intrepid investigators use Surf City’s population of ubiquitous, somewhat-unhinged homeless people to their advantage–is now available for your reading pleasure on WattPad.  Read it and weep.  Or laugh.  Or get pissed off.  Or be abjectly puzzled.  Whatever.  But read it, in any case!
