Constant Animals

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Exotic, unique, and brazen short fictions. Amusing, thought provoking, eerie. A different perspective. An alternative life, which isn’t taking itself too seriously. Existence, seen through curmudgeonly and misproportioned eyes. Collected from touchstone webzines and magazines across the literary spectrum. More

Review by: Kevin Shlosberg on April 27, 2015 :
A refreshing collection of short (micro?) fiction. So many funhouse mirror insights into relationships and human psych, each masterfully constructed with crisp language and fresh metaphors. By the time I finished reading it, I was a little dizzy. And who said literature was dead? "Tell the truth, but tell it slant." Highly recommended. Thanks for the fun read, Ken!
