SAN FRANCISCO, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Acclaimed author Ann Beattie has a new short story, "Just Going Out," featured in the most recent issue of Narrative Magazine, which also features the final installment of Rick Bass's new novel, The Diezmo, now serialized in its entirety in the online publication.
The current installment of Bass's Diezmo takes place after a band of renegade Texans has been defeated in an invasion of Mexico and taken prisoner to face the diezmo -- a punishment in which one of every ten in their company will be chosen by lottery for execution.
los diezmos fueron dados a los sacerdotes porque rueguen a Dios por el pueblo, y porque administran los sacramentos.
