Boy, I needed this laugh. The entire time I was reading this I could not help but picture the guy on T.V. . He plays Doug the ups man in the show King Of Queens. This made the story even more vivid to me because I had placed a character in my mind for poor ole Charley.
I really enjoyed this from beginning to end. Thank you for sharing.
It was a 5 star.

Paul, this is just riveting. Makes me shudder! Yet another eerie masterpiece.

Paul, being a former used car salesman, I reflected back on those days in Chicago when selling cars was fun...but there was always hell to pay to someone. Great write.

A great story made even scarier knowing this technology is not just a distant possibility.
One thing I felt needs revising is the line 'Then he chuckled at the irony of what he had just thought...' Just my humble opinion, but I think this line could be left at this. There is no need to explain the irony. Your readers will pick up on it.
Another great write though, and I loved the ending.

I did wonder at first how a young girl could be so mentally sophisticated... what a great twist!
Birds of Prey (Short Story) - 5/13/2007 3:46:55 PM
Excellent story; very well done! :)
The Roach (Short Story) - 5/13/2007 1:06:43 PM
Another brilliant story. I actually sat here holding my nostrils together at one point;-)
I'm in no way a roach fan, but I'm glad he won!
Birds of Prey (Short Story) - 5/13/2007 11:21:33 AM
I don't think I've ever been so pleased to find out a character is a vampire;-)
A wonderful write. It held my attention right from the start.
There are a few typing errors, but on the whole this is a wonderful story. Can't wait to read more.
The Stranger (Short Story) - 5/12/2007 6:26:57 AM
Several things went through my mind while reading this, but I can safely say, your ending took me by surprise.
I enjoyed this.

A great story with a perfect twist.
Reap What You Sow (Short Story) - 3/23/2007 10:09:03 AM
I'm hooked. This was great!
The Stranger (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 12:11:38 PM
I know this was posted along time ago, but I hope you still think about it. It is absolutely wonderful.
Truth of Vows (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 12:01:51 PM
You are definitely a multi-faceted writer. Good job.
The Roach (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 11:56:09 AM
Another winner. At first I thought your characterization was a little shallow, but then I remembered you were writing about a car salesman. ;o)

I love everything about it, including the very apt title. The phrase which instantly leapt to my mind when I finished it was Scott's "Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive."
But it sounds like Capt Jarvis has yet to be caught in this web of deception. With this powerful technology at stake, however, I'm sure he'll end up caught as well.

I laughed out loud, but then I felt sorry for poor (?) Charley. Despite his failings, I had gotten to kind of like the guy.
Silver Proof (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 10:42:22 AM
This is truly good. Truly, truly good. I somehow thought you'd end with something bad to go along with the good, but this is much better.
I now look forward to all your stories.
Reap What You Sow (Short Story) - 3/15/2007 9:58:59 AM
Wow! I hesitate to say that I love it, given how horrible the death was, but this really is a good story - well written and finished perfectly!
Reap What You Sow (Short Story) - 2/5/2007 5:20:22 PM
Very captivating story. It held my interest from beginning to end. Good job, Paul!!!!!
Sandie May Angel :o)

After reading the Roach I certainly didn't expect such a heartwarming tear-jerker!!! And I read it on a packed train home from work with tears in my eyes. Very touching.
Buzz Cut (Short Story) - 1/26/2007 7:23:47 PM
Oh my gosh, talk about a double whammy! Had me whincing the whole story and now my eye hurts. Great one Mr. Hamm!
Negative Polarity (Short Story) - 12/1/2006 2:41:59 AM
a story I can truly relate to because I suffer with this illness. Worthy of some of the works that Richard Matheson pulled off over the years. Truly frightening stuff here.
The Roach (Short Story) - 6/27/2006 8:29:44 AM
This is cool as hell, good to see another bug horror story on here and coming from one of the praticioners of this style. You did a hell of a story here. The creature itself is one of those I can't stand personally "f--king cockroaches." But hell I had to review this one because you touched into a bug everyone hates if they live in an apartment. Dude -- you got let me use this for TABLOID PURPOSES III!

Times of change are like being in a swirling current, you've captured these emotions so well in your poem.

Life is split between a game of chance and what you what to makeof it. The thread of uncertainty runs through yet you grow stronger with each new event...
Be always safe,

Your daughter is a great poet! I felt like I was a cloud for a moment. As we look down on them, they look down at us, and ponder, what has happened to us? Very deep and thought provoking question. I am looking forward to reading more of her work. Take care, ~Chessly
