Author's Note:

WARNING! This is an extremely graphic and violent tale. Please stop reading now if you are disturbed by such material. NOTE: I apologize for the white double-space line issue that appears intermittently throughout the text. I'm at a loss as to how to resolve this technical issue. When I intend there to be a break in chronology or otherwise scene-shift within the text I mark the transition with three page-centered asterisks, thusly: "***".
