Bob is hired by Happiness.Inc and works his way up from a quality analyst to the Quality Executive Director. But at what expense?

I loved this short story, every single thing about it was fresh and original. I wanted to give this tale five stars, but an editing error kept me from it- separate scenes need to be separated. Period.

Dedication is key.

I hesitate to say much, as saying much of anything is likely to spoil the story, ha ha. Worth checking out. Its well written, and pretty short, so there isn't much of an excuse not to! Ha ha! I'd love to read more.

The book covers the career of Bob Savage, from do only as you are told to 100% company man who never left the office. Creepy, pulls you in and grabs you. You will read it in one session.
Very well written.

An entertaining read if you can find it under the single sentence writing style. It's written like someone trying to relay a story using only one breath. A very quick read, I finished it in like 5 minutes.

At the nightclub of awesome reads, wizard of weird A. E. Hodge is spinning a pulse-pounding mix of horror, dark fantasy, and thrillers! A fugitive from small-town America, Hodge found refuge in a steady diet of fiction--from RPGs and anime to Stephen King novels and Tarantino flicks--and now weaves his love for all things twisted, disturbing, and darkly beautiful into his own stories.
