"With Good Intentions" was first published by Necrotic Tissue in 2009. Bureaucracy is bureaucracy whether you are on Earth or in Hell.

"Lilitol the Curmudgeon" was first published by Bards and Sages Quarterly in 2011. We get to see "X-mas" from the point of view of Jilgar, the dragon.

"Hellhound Rescue" was first published by Flash Scribe in 2009. Not all pets are easy pets.

"Blue Moon" is a tale about love and exes and sacrifice.

Nicky Drayden har written short stories full of humor and quirckyness. It did not take long to get through the collection and I enjoyed the journey.

Weird, nicely-written, and fascinating, this collection is different--told from the other side, so to speak--and very entertaining. Nicky Drayden is a magnificent writer, and in this collection the stories run the gamut from funny to bitter to wickedly amusing to slightly disturbing.

'Forgotten Prayers' and 'Blue Moon' are the collection's two strongest stories, but the other two are very good as well. Ms. Drayden writes in a calm professional voice that's as confident as any I've ever read before, and I feel lucky to have found her work.

What delightful tales. I really liked the first two. Nicky has a gift with choosing the best words which makes flash stories so enjoyable. His weaving of a tale keeps the reader hooked. Thank you for this share.
