STILL LIFE: NINE STORIES Part Of The “Fave Five” Of 2012

Over at Wag the Fox, they’re putting out their best-of-the-year lists, including their “Fave Five of 2012” for anthologies and collections. Lo and behold, my collection Still Life: Nine Stories made the list, along with works by Ellen Datlow, Jonathan Oliver, my buddy Ian Rogers, and John Skipp! Here’s what they have to say:

Still Life by Nicholas Kaufmann – One of the smaller collections I read this year, but an impactful one all the same. The nine stories in this book exemplify Nick’s ability to pull a reader in, go “Clockwork Orange” on their imagination, and make them beg for more.

You hear that, people? I’m going to stick toothpicks between your eyelids and make you listen to Beethoven! (Actually, aside from the toothpicks part, that sounds quite nice. I like Beethoven.)

Want to pick up a copy of the Still Life: Nine Stories e-book? Go here for a full list of vendors and formats. Toothpicks and Beethoven symphonies sold separately.
