The good news about getting slightly obsessed with reading everything from someone who hasn't published a lot is that, unlike my obsessions with Stanislaw Lem or JG Ballard, reading everything is an achievable goal. In fact, soon I will be at the point where I'm picking things up as they come out. Actually, I take the whole thing back. I'm currently caught up on a couple of TV shows and waiting for their airing schedule is awful. I have set myself up for anticipation and paying slightly higher prices for ebooks that just came out.

Regarding this ebook, it's very short and the stories within it aren't always satisfying. Many of the stories fall under the "I had a thought for a scene so I wrote the scene" variety, so they don't have the beats of a story, but are always interesting. I found that sometimes an ending when I thought the story was only getting started made me actually think about the story. There's a mode that I find myself going to, not paying as close attention to the start of the story when I think there's more of it, so, when it ends after the beginning, when it isn't building to something more, I have to stop and think about what just happened, to consider whether what I just read was satisfying when the expectations are stripped away. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes it's no, but the exercise is worth the effort.

Personally, I feel like I may like Mr Hilbert's novella length stories more than I liked the short stories, but we'll see. I have Death Thing queued up for later.

Andrew Hilbert is a stone cold killer of a writer. I first read his exquisite novella, Death Thing, and was blown away. Now, this. The stories in this chapbook are of the same high quality and have the same slap-you-silly power. Read him now.
