    The first story is good. The second story is stupid, makes no sense, just lists what's on a bunch of TV channels.

    So Eddy has shorts!

    I had the pleasure of reading all three volumes. There are two short stories in each and the author's preface states that he wrote these a while back, but don't worry if you don't know who Toad the Wet Sprocket is. Volume 1 has Bedlam and 7:00 C/M. Bedlam is about a son meeting his estranged father. 7:00 C/M reminded me why I don't watch TV anymore. Volume 2 has 67 Feet in the Air and Drain Bamaged. 67 Feet in the Air is extreme kite flying with a nice twist. I would have liked seeing this as a longer work. Drain Bamaged is beware of just any old invitation to go fishing when you've just moved into town. Volume 3 has The 22nd and 24th Presidents of the United States of America and Breaking Up is Hard to Do. The Presidents was my favorite. Just straight up funny and quirky. Breaking up is hard but even harder when you're boosting cars and on the run.

    Mr. McNally is also the author of The Norothian Cycle: The Sable City, Death of a Kingdom, and The Wind from Miilark, which he describes as a Musket & Magic Fantasy series.

    I Also Recommend:

    I recommend you check out Eddie's Shorts

    Including two stories - "Bedlam" and "Eight, Seven Central and Mountain" - Vol. 1 of Eddie's Shorts is brilliantly written and a fascinating look into Eddie's . uhm, mind. Yup.

    "Bedlam" tells the story about a young man named Jim who works at Willow Farm, a treatment center for the mentally ill. One day his father - who Jim has never met before - shows up on Jim's step and moves in with Jim. However, Jim starts to think that maybe his father is better fit to live among the residents at Willow Farm. Written in an interesting colloquial style, I was fascinated by the way that Ed put this one together. It takes up most of the book.

    "Eight, Seven Central and Mountain" is a quick flip through the TV stations - an interesting idea and it made me laugh several times.

    I can say that you should definitely check out Eddie's Shorts - Vol 1 is fab, and my review of Vol 2 will be up soon.
