I had the utmost pleasure of reading 6 in the Styx, a collection of short stories by Brad Carl. Brad has skills. The launch date for 6 in the Styx is coming soon. So scribble it down on your wish list.
And for this, I hate him. NO.. just kidding. I really enjoy his lighthearted morbid sense of humor that I have also found in Grey Areas, the Saga, novel length.
But back to 6 in the Styx. It’s a collection of short stories that follow the worst moments of six different people, and some don’t even realize it. When you read these stories, you’ll likely think the same things I did. My reactions to their situation, hapless, hopeless, cluelessness, my schadenfreude and near-reverence for Brad’s writing style.
God, I hate him… No.. aah, just kidding.
As a writer, I read everything in my path, including Lysol cans and other deadly poisons…
I MEAN.. books. But reading a wide variety of styles not only improves your vocabulary, it can give you bumps, chills and a very odd sense of humor.
Of course, you could be born that warped. I am pretty sure Brad was. No. He was.

And in my possession is Craft Beer Burning, a murder mystery. I can hardly wait to open the pages. In the meantime, readers, you have your mission. And… you will accept it. Because… you know you want to.
