52 Stitches

The first advanced review of the 52 Stitches anthology is up at Horror Drive-in. Mark Sieber has some nice things to say about it.

You can pre-order your own copy at The 52 Stitches website. If you've been keeping tabs as each new story is released each week, then you'll know how much of a treat you're in for and I don't have to do any selling what-so-ever, but if you're a little late to the dinner party, or if you want to have your own copy of all these flashes of horror all to yourself, then go and stake a claim to a copy (or two) now.

Go on - you know you want to...


  1. It was a nice review, although I think he wasn't expecting it to be.

  2. I had a similar reaction to the review. Like he was really expecting to dislike the collection without even having looked at it.

    Good for us. ;) We got 'im.

  3. I think most people are like this with short/flash story collections from multiple authors.

    I've read a few and so expect them to contain a few gems at the very least - more often than not they tend to have more than that, but the general consensus is that the story collections have seen their best days.

    Agents won't look at them and publishers shy away. Readers have followed suit.

    It's a fairly small group of people, mainly writers and indie press people, who know the real value of what we have around the place. One day it might change if we can get more people in bigger circulations to write reviews like this one.

    It's a start.

    Well done Aaron!
