When I find an author I love to read, I will follow their writing from their first release to their latest. I recently reviewed Paul Beckman's most recent collection of short stories, Kiss Kiss, and it had me laughing out loud.
His earlier collection of short stories, Peek, is also well worth the read. It's funny and dark, literary and absurd, full of vignettes as well as touching flash fiction stories. It's full of the taboo and what people tend not to say - not out loud, at least.
For a full review of the book, check it out here at Bewildering Stories. While the stories are probably not for the faint of heart or readers who find themselves easily offended, it's a great read for the rest of us. I'd definitely recommend it!
I read a lot - depending on my writing schedule, I can usually read about a book a day. Some of the books are fantastic and I would love to recommend to everyone - some, not so much. Either way, I thought I would share a few thoughts on what I'm reading at the moment.
