It’s weird how we meet other writers. I “met” Neil Schiller after discovering a review on one of my Kindle books. It turns out he’d been stalking his way through Year Zero after someone put him onto Larry Harrison’s stunning Glimpses of a Floating World. I soon got to know him in the forums over at Kindle, especially a particularly good thread he started about Bukowski.
If starting threads on Amazon isn’t enough to get you rushing to his books, then have a read of this, the short story Sorry (which features in his collection, Oblivious). Then take some time to look around the rest of his blog.
Oblivious is a fantastic set of shorts that are way more than just wannabe Bukowski. Intimate, touching, simple, yet complex. Everything short stories should be. And just 70p.
Also 70p is Haiku Diary. Which is just that. And exquisite.
