Posted on July 7, 1999TW3, an online magazine, celebrates the last summer of the century with its first all-fiction issue. The issues includes short stories, excerpts from novels in progress and a complete novella -- by writers ranging from literary gadfly Jules Siegel to a previously unpublished 19-year-old from Texas.
Siegel's contribution, 30 years in the making and previously seen only by a handful of the author's friends and colleagues, is "Forbidden Dreams: Fragments Of A Novel In Progress," of which the novelist John LeCarré said simply, "I will never part with my copy." Siegel's most recent book is the nonfiction Lineland; his short fiction, articles and reviews have been published in The New York Times, New American Review, The Village Voice, Playboy and many other venues.
