Eugene Cross on Breece DJ Pancake’s “Trilobites”

by Salvatore Pane

Someone handed me a copy of Breece D’J Pancake’s story ‘Trilobites,’ and that was really it. I reread it over and over, and have done so periodically ever since. It seemed to be about everything: fathers and sons, war, love, violence, sex, mothers and sons, limitations, the earth the sky. Everything.
