Written one-a-day in July 2013, these thirty-one more very short stories feature a wide (and often surprising) cast of characters: a drunken angel, a baby-themed supervillain, a man who spontaneously turns into two mildly annoyed horses. This book is for everyone who's ever wondered: "Just what would happen if Hydrogen quit its day job to become a country music star...?"
Damon L. Wakes was born in 1991 and began to write a few years later. In 2012, he graduated from the University of Reading with a degree in English Literature. He produces both short stories and novels, and particularly enjoys crafting new worlds.

About the Series: Flash Fiction Month
Have you ever wondered why superheroes wear their underpants over their trousers? Where the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse go shopping? What crop circles really mean? If so (and even if not) these books may be for you! Written as part of Flash Fiction Month, these books are each made up of 31 stories written one-a-day in July. Every book includes a tongue-in-cheek analysis of the event so that you can follow not only how the stories have varied over the course of the month, but how one author's work has developed over multiple years.

Damon Wakes writes something which has always been sorely lacking in literature - stories which are actually fun to read. So if you are looking for poignant emotion rending drama then go elsewhere. If you've had a bad day and need something to pull you out of a flunk then this is the stuff.
