Quite possibly the most impressive collection of short stories that Brian Keene has put together There is something for everyone in this little book of horrors Some of the amazing titles included in this book include Take the Long Way Home, Jack s Magic Beans, The Resurrection and the Life and Tequila s Sunrise One of the nicest treats in this book is the the final few pages include some poems that Brian Keene worked on in the past It was a real treat to be able to read Brian Keene s early work as well as his hard to find short stories like Black Wave , Stone Tears and This is Not An Exit The true highlight of this book is The Siqquism Who Stole Christmas which is a humongous treat for anyone who has read The Rising.As of yet some of the short stories haven t been republished in other books However quite of few can be found sold by themselves Like Tequila s Sunrise and others will eventually be added to the second volume to follow Blood on the Page The Complete Short Fiction of Brian Keene, Volume 1 So if you are looking to collect Brian Keene s short stories and can t find this book for a reasonable price, just be patient because Volume 2 of Blood on the Page will eventually be released in the near future Overall if you can find this book for a reasonable price or borrow it from a friend then I can t recommend it enough It s a shame this book is out of print, because it is definitely a book I give five out of five stars to One Of Modern Horror S Hottest Authors Delivers An All New Collection Brian Keene S UNHAPPY ENDINGS Features An Exciting Mix Of Never Before Published Stories And Hard To Find Fan Favorites, Ranging From Violent, Post Apocalyptic Novella To Quiet, Supernatural Human Dramas I enjoyed some of the short stories Some of them were very good and had me wishing for the story to be extended so that I could read about it Keene is a great story teller. DL mention Keene s 4th short story collection features 19 stories and 3 poems I was a bit pissed that I had already read so much of the material here MOST of the stories from Keene s A LITTLE SILVER BOOK OF STREET WISE STORIES appear here , but it does contain some rare and GOOD selections you ll want to check out.JACK S MAGIC BEANS a planned novella from another press that never panned out makes its debut here and I found it to be the highlight of the collection Keene shines when working in apocalyptic settings, and this one features a couple of neat twists.The limited edition novella TEQUILA SUNRISE is included here, and being I missed the Bloodletting Press edition it was nice to finally read it If you ve ever wondered why there s a worm at the bottom of some Tequila bottles, you ll dig the author s fabled reason.The 3 poems are okay, although I identitfied nicely with FOUR YOUNG BLONDES IN A RED MAZDA funny stuff especially if you re middled aged.I m guessing hardcore Keene fans might feel a little duped with this one a few stories were originally available only as extras in limited editions of his novels , but I m happy to have been let in on the fun especially the couple of tales that take place within THE RISING universe.If you re not familar with Keene, this is a fine place to get aquainted with his work his self introduction is informative and fun , too.
