Overview

Five tales on contemporary life—lyrical, brutal, and unforgettable.

Saying Secrets is the first collection from acclaimed writer and poet Christopher Conlon—five tales of contemporary life by turns lyrical and brutal, most originally published in The Long Story literary journal. Whether taking you inside the mind of a horribly disfigured woman, bringing you along on a psychotic teenager's final rampage, or introducing you to a girl in California who both is and is not Anne Frank, Conlon is a storyteller whose words and worlds you'll not soon forget. This edition features a special Introduction by William F. Nolan, author of some 60 books (including Dashiell Hammett: A Life on the Edge and the Black Mask Boys mystery series) along with an Afterword by scriptwriter George Clayton Johnson, whose screen credits range from The Sinatra Rat Pack Classic Ocean's Eleven to the original Twilight Zone. Together Nolan and Johnson penned Logan's Run, the renowned futuristic novel later made into a highly successful film and television series.
