The News of the World" - stories by Ron Carlson is a great collection.
This is the first book of short stories that Ron wrote in 1987.
I've recently read all of Carlson's short story collections, except for his newest one "At the Jim Bridger", which I'm eagerly waiting to crack open.
Short stories seem to be either loved or hated by most readers, I happen to love them. If your looking for short stories that are oustanding and superbly written, look no further then Ron Carlson.
Part I of the book, which include the first five stories in the book, had me wondering if this collection would stand up to "The Hotel Eden", which I adored
Part II did not disappoint, with the first two stories being Carlson's famous - Bigfoot Stole My Wife & the follow up - My Name is Bigfoot, those aren't my personal favorites, but two other stories from this section are -
The Time I Died (5 star writing, short story gold)
Phenomena (5 star writing, short story gold)
Part III is good, with four of the five stories really leaving an impression on me -
Great collection, more affirmation for me that Ron Carlson is my favorite short story writer!
