Paul Michael Peters: The Complete Collection of Short Stories 2012-2018 Tales that are perfect for coffee breaks - but beware; like chocolate, they lure the reader into just one more. Paul Michael Peters has created a magical collection of stories that help the reader look at the day from a different perspective. This is a collection that once you start you can't put down. Stories are perfect for anyone trying to fit reading into a busy day. What if you could remember everything? What would your life be like if your father was the worlds greatest illusionist? What if your partner was plotting against you? What actions would you avoid if you were the devil? These are only a few of the questions explored in this collection of short stories. There is something about Peters writing that is almost intoxicating and leaves you wanting more. The light feel of the stories is relaxing and charming. Each story carries hints of mystery in connections waiting to be made. Each takes the reader on flights of well-drawn history and place and compelling characterization. A sense of parable and myth builds one story into the next, even when the path is so different. And the whole is a beautifully connected diorama of people and place. Like your favorite Twilight Zone episodes, there's an otherworldly beauty. Between 2012 and 2018 author Paul Michael Peters released two collections of short stories, "Mr. Memory and Other Stories of Wonder," and "Killing the Devil." These followed his first publication, a novella called "Peter in Flight," and in between his two novels "The Symmetry of Snowflakes," and "Insensible Loss." "Paul Michael Peters: The Complete Collection of Short Stories 2012 - 2018" includes all his published and unpublished stories. Top-selling author Paul Michael Peters is an American writer best known for his take on the quirky tangents and morals of contemporary life in his recent novel, Insensible Loss. His upcoming novel, Combustible Punch, is a thriller that explores the psychological dance between that most unlikely of odd couples: a serial killer and a high school shooting survivor.… (more)

Cool twists, fascinating premises, and curious snippets of history (Do you know who was the first person to be killed by a robot?) characterize the stories in this collection by Paul Michael Peters. Mr. Memory will stay in the reader’s memory long after the reading’s done. And the devil just might haunt your dreams – dead or alive! I particularly enjoyed the concept of Narcissistic Network Disorder, and I love all the stories, twisted, twisting and fascinating from start to finish. But my favorite is Secondhand Robots – a delightful tale that brings machines of the near-future to vivid life. Short, wonderful reads, this collection is highly recommended.

Disclosure: I got a copy in a deal and I love this author’s short stories ( )

Really great collection of short stories. They were sad but a happy kind of sad. The author is really good at pulling you into the characters life. The shortness of the stories is great and they are great quick reads. ( )

This book is very interesting to read. I enjoy how each story has a concept behind them that pertains to everyday life. The stories have flow so you can picture it come to life. I found it very enjoyable and unique. ( )
