Nostalgia by Justin Hunter

"The dark fiction novel Nostalgia delves into the lives of Mike and Brett. The men share a significant event in their past that, due to Mike’s head trauma, only Brett remembers. Each of their lives bears scars from what happened; one physically and the other emotionally. Mike is in the grips of a childhood traumatic brain injury that has deteriorated his consciousness to the point of shredding his moral fabric, twisting his past and threatening to eliminate his future."

Outlaw Circus

A generous supply of surrealist prose pieces--some of them stories, some vignettes, with nods to Ibsen, Borges, Kafka, Gogol, and others--capped off by a true gem, Outlaw Circus, a pun-filled, Blazing-Saddles-like novella that plays wild and entertaining mind games with the western genre. Heaps of fun! --Robert Devereaux, author of Baby's First Book of Seriously Fucked-Up Shit

Not One of Us Issue #51

From Publisher John Benson:

“We might have called this our ‘autumn issue,’ but here in the northern hemisphere that would have been a confusing name for an April publication.  So instead we’ll say the theme is not dead yet.  We have a woman defying her own personal death, a man living the puzzle of the not-quite-dead, and a washer cleansing all precious griefs; one who lives in a court of rust and another who waits to step through the walls while the shadows last.  If you’re not dead yet, you can dream that you’ve woken up and gone outside; but be careful, there’s something in the garden that doesn’t want to stay there.  And especially for the not yet dead, ‘autumn is the true alchemist.’”
