Kevin Wilson has written a truly unique collection of shert stories. He has created stories that are morbid, depressed and funny. It is a combination that seems like it would only work if it were over the top - with the morbid being funny. But that isn't so with Tunneling to the Center of the Earth. While at times he hovers near the top - he doesn't go over. Best of all he keeps the reader interested and smiling as we shake our heads in wonder.

Even though these stories have an element of the bizarre, they are not sensational shockers with freaks for characters. The characters are all sympathetic, normal people stuck in freakish situations. A nice normal woman works as a rent-a-grandma. A man is taken aback by the full set of teeth on his friend's new baby. An understandably fascinated guy convinces his girlfriend to attend a traveling show featuring a man who shoots himself in the face night after night in the name of entertainment. I recommend buying this book and keeping it on hand because I have enjoyed reading the stories with breaks in between so I can absorb the lingering taste of each one--sometimes warm like hot chocolate and sometimes tart yet surprisingly enlightening like a stiff martini.

"Tunneling To the Center of the Earth: Stories" should be in every short story fan's collection. This collection of eleven stories is outstanding, the only other short story collections I would rank right up with this are "We're in Trouble: Stories by Christopher Coake" & "Refresh, Refresh: Stories by Benjamin Percy"! This is author Kevin Wilson's book debut and it's a grand slam! GOOD: "Grand Stand-In" "Birds in the House" "Mortal Kombat" "Go, Fight, Win" "Worst-Case Scenario" GREAT: "Blowing Up On the Spot" ** (my favorite of the collection) "The Shooting Man" "The Choir Director Affair (The Baby's Teeth)" "The Museum of Whatnot" Read these stories and you'll see that Kevin Wilson is a natural talent, very much looking forward to reading more stories & hopefully a novel from him. Enjoy~

Each story not only had string characters with interesting mindsets, but Wilson makes you a part of their worlds. I loved this book.
