Seven Broken Pieces: A Short Story (A Life Upside Down Book 0)

by Victoria Ichizli-Bartels

Young and resolute, still suffering from her sister’s death in Vietnam,
Sasha Leroy Palmer decided in the 1960's to fight the enemy on the other
side of the Iron Curtain from within. Even if this meant becoming a spy.
She convinced herself that her sister’s death was the only reason she came
here. To help her home country, the one that was truly free, to fight one

evil. Especially since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The Days That Don't Disappear

by Garry Crystal

From the author of the novel, Leaving London and the short story collection, All of Us With Our Pointless Worries and Inconsequential Dramas.

How can you ever hope to become a well-adjusted adult when your only role models are violent, bullying teachers?

The Days That Don’t Disappear is a true story set during the 1970s in a Scottish, Catholic primary school.

This is the first-hand tale of four years of violent bullying towards children, not from other children, but from school teachers who were in a position of trust. An honest account of a less than idyllic childhood and a story of growing up and learning what life can really be like if you happen to be unfortunate enough.

Excerpts

“She was in her mid-forties. Tall, may...

Evil Men: Short Stories

by Erik Wennermark

Evil Men is a series of short stories by Erik Wennermark, each detailing the exploits of an “evil man.” Some of the men are criminal, some are disturbed, some are pathetic, some are comical, but all have transgressed in some - often frightening - way.

Falling Man

by William H. Duryea

An agonizing reflection on a society of shared post-traumatic stress. (No, that's not it.) A highly personal chronicle of learned helplessness and depression. (Not quite.)A series of agnostic parables, morals not included. (Don't get cute with me.) Another childish white male temper tantrum. (There, you got it)Falling Man is a collection of 34 pieces of short prose and poetry about mental illness, suicide, and the incoherent nightmare of early 21st Century life. The works included touch on moments of recent historical trauma ranging from the Charleston church massacre ("Storm Roof") to 9/11 ("Falling Man") to the Trump presidency ("The White House at Night") as well as the smaller pains and humiliations of daily life. Or, in other words: more sad garbage from an entitled millennial. Enjoy...
