Smashwords Interview

What is your favorite word?
Fornication. I like the word because it means sex but I can't hear it without also thinking fortification. Somehow the idea of a large structure, perhaps phallic in appearance, mixing in with intercourse just takes it to a whole new level.
What is your least favorite word?
Chthonic. I remember reading Inferno by Dan Brown and he's only 12 lines in and he casually drops that word. It was like a slap in the face. The perfect word and then he plows on as if it's no big deal. I would have stopped the book in its tracks just to gloat about how I worked that word in. Dick.

The Song Between Her Legs

His work has been called demented, hilarious, quirky and well outside the mainstream and with his sixth collection of short stories Manion unapologetically stays with that formula. Big sloshing mixes of poignancy and offensiveness, hope and callousness. He understands that we are all kind and bigoted. Wonderful and pathetic. The human experience is wildly erratic. And he won't pretend otherwise.

With this newest collection of irreverent short stories Manion once again asks the reader to get off the bench and into the game as he dishes out laughs, offense and even a few poignant moments. There is no point to be made here. Only the hope that somewhere amidst all the run-on sentences, unnecessary profanity and poor grammar, readers will come away with some unique thoughts of their own.

An interesting short story has to be equal parts confession, exultation and suicide note. The writer has to be arrogant and insecure, brimming with joy and despair, able to see hope and hopelessness in everything and, before he can claim to be honest, has to be comfortable lying his ass off. Funny, and at times thought-provoking, "The Ball Washer" is definitely not for the faint of heart.
