The Cheap Stories series--short eBooks, cheap as hell.
Two essays about the destructive drive to create art. Whether the effort is to desecrate books in the name of originality, or rescuing a biker from a beatdown in a mosh pit, these essays examine how art comes from the soul before it can be anything corporeal.
See why Padgett Powell says, “Richard Weems is a big, generous, weird guy whose stories too are generous and weird.”
Stories for a song! (Literally!)
Richard K. Weems (www.weemsnet.net) is also the author of Anything He Wants, winner of the Spire Fiction Award and finalist for the Eric Hoffer Book Prize. He lives and teaches in New Jersey.
"Richard Weems' surging dialogue and rhapsodic narrative guide us through the humorous, albeit damning, interactions of people who are just like us. Confused, inspired, and sad, his characters are working to change their lives but are frustrated by both the every-day and the highly unusual. Detailed introspections are delivered through original prose, unlike anything I've ever read. Don't read him if you want the norm. His voice is part of an underground, cutting edge group of writers who are making wild changes to the way literature is created and enjoyed."
-Camille Renshaw, former Editor of Pif Magazine
"A pleasure to read, a pleasure to inhabit...Extraordinary work by a writer about whom too little is known."
"Richard Weems is a big, generous, weird guy whose stories too are generous and weird. Weems is going to get weirder with time, and more generous and more large, and he will be fun to read."
