Read full description of the books:



i guess i am someone who reads short stories. it's what i do now. so, to celebrate the short, i am going to make this review a series of pithy one-sentence... summaries? commentaries? of/on each story. this is not me being lazy; it is actually quite difficult. especially with stories like these, which frequently have little twists in them that i want to avoid destroying. so some of these sentences might even be misleading, a little. who knows, i haven't written it yet. come with me on my tiny journey.

query

some publishers will work harder for you than others.

gaytown

sorry, kids, apparently it actually doesn't get better.

home

obsession and paranoia in space just makes it hard on everyone.

assassination and the new world order

congratulations on being elected; now watch your fucking back.

when fat men love thin women

i would for you

jazz threnody

self-scrutiny is no fun, is it?

doing time

would you like some poetry with that justice?

falling

when your life flashes before your eyes, it can take ages, man...

object of desire

you'd think it would be nice to have everyone love you...

the death artist

like kafka, only more committed

shika

for some reason, i have nothing to say about this story.

tabula rasa

worst party ever

the back shed

ah, the muse, she is destructive....

the uncertainty principle

love triangles in space are hard!!

monster

a brief and clever reversal of a familiar story

the love clinic

oh, god, people - just talk to each other before you make decisions!!!

pirates

well, how do you like it, fazellas?



cure for cancer

it seemed like a good idea at the time...

horror story

i started something...


i realize now that this was probably a bad idea, and this "review" is too reductive to give any sense of the true impact of the stories, and it makes it all sound a little silly. but i'm not good at covering my tracks when i make mistakes, so i'll just plow on into an overview of the collection. most of it was great - i wasn't crazy about the sci-fi/military ones, but that's a me vs. genre thing. these are highly original and stunning stories about the destructive force of love and obsession and the horrible decisions we make while in their throes. i think the only one i didn't like at all was shika. there were some that were okay, but the ones i loved i really really loved, so this was a more successful collection than most, and considering it took me almost two years to be able to get it into the store, i would say it was definitely worth waiting for.

spooky month continues...

Horror Story and Other Horror Stories
Robert Boyczuk is a supremely talented short-story writer.
–Cory Doctorow on BoingBoing

"Boyczuk's memorable debut offers 19 horror stories that accentuate the emotional-and often horrid - upheavals men and women suffer from while searching for love....Boyczuk's stories are uniformly excellent...."
-Publisher's Weekly

"[Boyczuk] has a real knack for creepy... (His) stories all have a twist—a turn of the screw—that breathes new life into some of the old forms and results in fiction as clever as it is entertaining.”
-Alex Good, Quill and Quire

Nexus: Ascension
“Certain to outrage snowboarders and pro-lifers of all stripes. Infantovores, however, will find a powerful and articulate advocate in Robert Boyczuk.”
—Peter Watts, author of the Rifters Trilogy and Blindsight.

"Well-punctuated with dramatic set pieces and thrills that are often sharp and bloody, the whole thing culminates in a spectacularly messy, and thoroughly satisfying, finale....this is an ambitious novel that delivers on all its promises."
—Alex Good, GoodReports.net

"The stuff of an epic nihilistic hangover."
-Pulbisher's Weekly
