SUDDEN DEATH, OVER TIME does what only good satire can--tear down the artificial and the irrelevant to get to what is human. The stories are funny, insightful, disturbing, sad and always entertaining. Rember's talent in bringing interesting characters to life and letting them stumble on their own humanity in places common and extreme gives these stories an energy that sparks on every page until they conflagrate into a controlled burn.

A great read, full of sly and dark humor. John Rember is one of the most thoughtful and thought-provoking writers around. He also happens to be a very funny and slightly subversive writer, all of which adds up to a great read. If you're a fan of either of Rember's previous two collections of short stories -- or of "Traplines" (his memoir) or "MFA in a Box" (his book on creative writing) -- you are in for a treat with "Sudden Death, Over Time."
