#MilitantFactionsQuotes 30:

It seemed like writer Mark Piggott had found paradise: a luxury resort near Broome on Australia’s northern coast. But when stranded in Cable Beach with his family, a series of unexpected events would drive him to the edge of madness…

Perth, WA. Pronounced: “wah!” Thousands of cars shimmer in the mid-thirties heat. The only parking space large enough for a tank like a Holden Commodore is a sweaty hike from the domestic airport, and as I pull our 30-kilogram suitcase behind me with one hand, pushing a pram with the other, flies descend. Unable to fend them off I curse loudly in a Yorkshire twang and shake my head like a BSE-addled cow.

-From "The Boab Sentinels", first published @ 3:AM Magazine (2008), and one of the stories in Mark Piggott's fiction/non-fiction collection "Militant Factions" available in paperback or Kindle from Amazon.
