Once again, Author Greg Sisco does not fail to deliver. I just read a short story from this rising star and it had everything that I have come to appreciate and enjoy and even marvel at in his work. Much like his previous effort, "One Night Stan’s", "The Happy Seat" isn’t for the faint of heart.

Mr Sisco's writing style is short, sharp and horrifying.

A Valentine's day short story saturated with Greg Sisco's trademark wit. A writer with great potential - I look forward to following his career.

There are two personality traits I can recall possessing for just about as far back as my memory will serve. The first is a love of writing and the second is a malicious sense of humor.

Since childhood, I have been the person who roots for the bad guy in movies and laughs when Bambi's mom gets shot. I take interest in the flaws of a character far more than the heroic characteristics, which have a t
