I know, I know… “E” book. It is a strange thing. They are different than regular books. But this is special. This is a charity E-book. Also, we’ve brought together some of the most amazing, upcoming independent authors to produce some real nice literary Christmas shit.

Since everyone is having "Christmas in July" specials, I decided to jump aboard the band wagon and read this awesome e-book of short stories.

First of all, I just love the cover. I mean how could you not?

Second of all, each and every single one of these stories were fantastically written. I don't have a favorite because they were all just that well done.

Finally, I am most certainly looking forward to read more from these authors, as well as, the Metazen blog http://www.metazen.ca/ too.

This collection of short stories caught my eye while browsing books by Bradley Sands. He has a short in this funny collection along with a couple other Bizarro Authors.

Marcus Speh starts out and continues throughout with a Christmas countdown. Vaughn Simons does the twelve days of Xmas " Two Turtle Doves & Six Geese" had me laughing. Cameron Pierce's dad makes us some pancakes better eat up or get your throat slit. Annie Evett story of waiting for death is a awesome read. Bradley Sands send

“I am a bomb but I mean you no harm. That I still am here to tell this, is a miracle: I was deployed on May 15, 1957, but I didn’t go off because a British nuclear engineer, a young father, developed qualms after seeing pictures of native children marveling at the mushrooms in the sky, and sabotaged me. I could see why during that short drop before I hit the atoll: the island looks like god’s knuckles in a bathtub, the ocean is beautifully translucent, corals glow underwater, a dead city of bones, allowing a glimpse into a white netherworld. I met the water and fell a few feet into a chromatic cemetery. The longer I lie here, listening to my still functioning electronic innards, the more afraid I grow of detonating after all this time. I don’t share your gods, but I pray I shall die a silent death.” 2 likes
