I love this kind of stuff…short stories. I almost put this on Digital short Saturday but thought better of it as it sold as one packaged good. How could it qualify for a digital short story, you ask? I read this on my Kindle. It is broken up into different short stories by different authors, thus the digital short stories. Tomorrow I am popping in my Top 20 Novels of the First Quarter of 2011, and then on Thursday I am calling it The Delicious Dozen Of Digital short Stories First Quarter 2011. Don’t miss the lists! They are full of amazing stuff. Back to the action at hand. The last time I read something like this was Agents of Treachery and that was a blast. Here is the description of the work right from Goodreads:

“Hold on tight for a literary thrill-ride into the wickedly clever, frightening, and exhilarating world of Top Suspense, a sizzling collaboration of 12 master storytellers at the peak of their powers in 13 unforgettable tales. This unforgettable anthology - packed full of cold-blooded killers, erotic tension, shady private eyes, craven drug dealers, vicious betrayals, crafty thieves, and shocking twists - is only a taste of the thrills you will find in the breathtakingly original ebooks by these authors at www.topsuspensegroup.com .

So sit back, bite down on a piece of strong leather, and prepare to get hit by some gale-force suspense and writing so sharp it will draw blood.  “

Personally, in the description, I don’t know if they could fit any more adjectives about the stories or the authors. Then again, we are talking about 12 master storytellers at the peak of their powers. Where did they get these powers and do they use them for the good of mankind or the forces of evil? I am going to say the forces of good as they seem to be pretty nice guys that can certainly turn a tale or two. Fortunately, I did not bleed at all during the reading of the work and the Kindle did not spontaneously combust from the heat of the action. My house still stands even though as I opened the file, the gale force action hit me at a speed that was unannounced to man. One thing I do not wish to do is to single out one of the authors and say that his work is better than the others. They all rock in their own special way. You can choose your own favorite author: clever, frightening, exhilarating, sizzling, cold-blooded, erotic, or shady. Wait, maybe that was seven of something else. Besides that, there are 12 authors here so you run with it as you like. I just want you to know that The G-Man had a blast with it, loved the read, and I hope that this is just the start for this new Dirty Dozen of Suspense. This new SuperUber Group of authors can pump it out in a taunt, fluent style that is sure to take you and your Kindle on a thrill ride that is well worth the hard earned dollars.

Yo, Gelati! What's the scoop on Trestle Press? Heard a lot about it, seen its name sky-written above high school football games, was mugged by its hired goons, and yet, I can't nail down if it has a website. Are you affiliated with it? Seems you two are attached.
