“One of the most enjoyable reads I've had for some time.”

“The author's on to something original.”

AND ELVIS WILL MARRY US

“Whew. That's a different kind of story. The way it's told is bizarre, but it's definitely full of life and character.”

“A joy to read, so refreshing after reading so many struggling attempts from newbie writers, God bless ‘em. And damn do I love your voice. It’s not often that I envy a writer his gift, but I do yours.”

The truth isn't stranger than my fiction. Jon Lymon writes thrillers for adults and cute animal stories for kids, though one day he might swap that around. He lives in south London and likes cheese, and biscuits. But not cheese and biscuits.

Some stories good, others not so much.

Interesting collection, a bit experimental in places. Vicious Circle and She Went Into The Toilet And Never Came Back were the standouts for me.
