THE BEST SHORT STORIES OF CLIFF BURNS (1985-2009)

"The Literary Equivalent of Far Side Cartoons"

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 7, 2010: My favourite story in this collection "Printed Matter" has a distinctive format: it takes the form of a series of letters from a recluse to the editor of his favourite mail order book company – and with each letter it becomes more and more apparent that at least one of them is very, very, scarily sick! You really wonder where this one is going as you read it! Brilliant – he gets the tone of the letters just right, to the typo.
