what are you reading? what should other people be reading? books, comics, newspapers, contracts - any reading at all...

Hmmm, that name's familiar.
are you going to review it for us....
I particularly like the foreword -- which I wrote. :)
I can hardly be considered an unbiased party, but I can tell you that the title story of the collection, "Crazy Little Thing", is pretty much the best story he's written to date, is downright fantastic, and, luckily enough, is downloadable as a free (unlocked) PDF from here!
You have to put your hands on a copy of the book for the creepy children's beauty pageant piece, "Pretty Little Dead Girls", where the undead pageant contestants are in no way the actual monsters in the story....
There is also a fantastic zombie Western, "High Noon of the Living Dead", which, with enough arm-twisting, we might get him to expand into something novel-length.
And then there's "Causing Effect", a brutally charming love story with a few surrealist elements that strike pretty close to home to anyone who's ever thought they might be losing it....
And that doesn't even mention the legendary "Mr. Binkles" stories, previously featured in Cthulhu Sex Magazine. Which are otherwise ... there's no real way to prepare you for them, so I won't bother.
It's certainly worth putting your hands on. I'll have to discuss with the author and publisher how to get this overseas, but it's currently obtainable from the US version of Amazon.
(P) what's this?
