    If you think your holiday shopping is bad...

    You have never visited Brian Keene's Save-a- lot. I loved the tale of Jack's Magic Beans, and for thse of you that enjoy dystopian fiction, you will find much to enjoy, for Keene is providing a new twist on apocalyptic themes, the rest of this short story colkection is good, but not anything to get too excited about, especially since most of these tales appear in older collections.

    There is nothing here to write home about but that doesn't mean

    There is nothing here to write home about but that doesn't mean that this short book isn't worth your time. The short stories contained within are fun Keene fair. They read quickly but are worth every second. The only reason I'm only giving 4 stars is becuse I much prefer his longer and more developed work.

    If you are a Keene fan who has yet to indugle, what are you waiting for? If you've yet to read Keene I recomend one of his full lenth books first. You will not be dissapointed. Find out what all the Keene-Heads are going on about!

    Keene Has Short Story Chops As Well

    This book had more pages then I had time in the day. That was all that stopped my from devouring this short story collection in a day. The 'just-shy-of-100-page' book is a 4 short story/novella collection of some long ago out of print stories brought back in this new collection.

    Out of the gate, Jack's Magic Beans is pure Keene in a short burst. The next two stories I Am An Exit and This Is Not An Exit displays a deeper literary prose for Keene and also promises to set up a longer form novel featuring the lead character. The collection finishes off with "The King, In: Yellow" and ode to Robert W. Chambers. Chambers is considered by Keene to be an absolute need to know horror writer to know for all followers of the genre, readers and writers alike.

    Even in short burts, I am left in awk of Keene's words. He tales haunt me long after I've read the final page. I can't recommend reading this or ANYTHING by Brian Keene!
