Ballistics by Alex Keegan
Now published and available from Salt Publishing here.
I haven't got my copy yet - will do so tomorrow evening at the official launch in London. However, I've been lucky enough to go through many of the stories included in it with Alex on a number of occasions, both online and face-to-face, and this is a collection of very, very fine short stories. There is a depth to this work which is remarkable. Some stories warrant re- and re-reading. Some positively require it. Such is the case with Alex's work.
If you buy one short story collection this year, this is the one.
