It’s hard to put into words just how excited I am for this collection. Chuck Palahniuk is, without question, one of my all-time favorite authors, so having him select one of my stories to be included here was (WARNING: Incoming Cliché) a dream come true.
So, what do we know about Burnt Tongues so far? Well, it has a pretty great cover, for one. At the risk of sounding completely biased, I really dig the minimalist look here, and think it suits the style and overall vibe of the work featured. Speaking of the work, I’ve read drafts of nearly every story inside, and I don’t think it’s a stretch to call them gut-punchingly powerful. You know the feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you’re reading something that you just know you’ll be mulling over in your head for the next week or so? Yeah, that’s practically every few pages here, so get ready for a few sleepless nights.
And if that isn’t enough, what if I told you that you can read the absolutely amazing introduction by Chuck Palahniuk… RIGHT NOW! Just click HERE to visit his official homepage for the entire piece.
It’s going to be awesome. Trust me.
