Sincerity and Other Scary Tales - David Blixt

Well, this was disappointing.

It’s not just disappointing by comparison with the previous book I read, which was fab, but I am entirely put off by the fact that this was called a short story collection.

This contained five stories, that is true, but one was the preface to a novel, two were only a couple of pages long, one was so obscure that the author himself felt the need to explain it, and most of them I could not see the point in.

It seems to me that this book was 100% stuffing, 0% book, but that is just my opinion.
