This is an excerpt The full review can be found at horrortalk reviews boEvery now and then in our chosen genre, a storyteller comes along who s so incredibly good you know immediately that you ve discovered something special For me, those authors include such giants as Laird Barron, the great Jack Ketchum, Poppy Z Brite, and the incomparable Stephen Graham Jones And in the last few years we ve had the great fortune to be able to add some new names to that list rising stars such as Michael Wehunt [...]
I was expecting something great based on my first impression of Paul Michael Anderson from the Lost Signals anthology and from the fact freakin Dark Regions are publishing this they re very selective with their output and, well, BONES ARE MADE TO BE BROKEN managed to beat my expectations The title story which suckered me into a three hours long reading frenzy this morning really is the crowning jewel of the collection and, with a few tweaks, could ve been a standalone novel by iteself It is by f [...]
Every once in a while a book comes along that knocks you for six In 2015, John F.D Taff blew me away with his collection of short stories The End in all Beginnings and in 2016, Paul Michael Anderson has done likewise with Bone are made to be Broken Bones are made to be Broken is the first collection of short stories from Paul Michael Anderson, released by Dark Regions Press Paul s work first came to my attention in 2015 with To Touch the Dead a short story that was a standout in Grey Matter Pres [...]
I met Paul earlier this year at a convention Didn t know he was an author until the night was nearly over, and I asked if he had any books out.Man, am I glad I did.This collection is raw, unflinching, and has heart than Temple of Doom literally, like, actual physical heart It s a play on words, kinda Sort of Leave me alone I loved this, through and through The jumps between sci fi, horror, and transgressive are seamless, and each story punches like Butterbean I can t praise this highly enough T [...]
Full disclosure Paul has purchased a few stories and poems of mine for anthologies and magazines he has edited These stories are raw, brutal and pack a bunch Not because of gore or violence though you will find both here , but these stories own up to the good writing advice that stories should be about the worst day in a character s life Paul crafts elegant, genuine characters facing horrific situations, from one of the darkest portrayals of vampires I ve read to an asshole ex husband looking to [...]
Great collection Not all the stories are home runs but most hit the mark Emotional and heavy.
The opening story, Crawling Back to You , concerns a vampire and his familiar But this is not the tale of a member of the 18th century European aristocracy who sequesters himself in a dark castle and enslaves a manservant to bring him comely maidens The contemporary setting and the relationship between the two main characters, Thomas and Patty, set this fang tastic offering apart from your typical vampire story Anderson concentrates on the relationship between these two, hinting at their past an [...]
Unnerving Magazine ReviewI had a very limited sample size of Paul Michael Anderson prior to reading Bones Are Made to be Broken In fact, to my knowledge, it was a single story that happens to be included in this collection, an immensely unsettling story of two boys and their asshole father that I enjoyed that story enough to read it again.This is a telltale marker of this collection.The most valuable asset in any story, from my perspective anyhow, is a conveyance of humanity that feels natural S [...]
This may sound strange, but stay with me Paul Michael Anderson s magnificent stories are distinctly familiar Not boring, not unoriginal, but FAMILIAR He somehow taps in to something within us as human beings Each of the stories in this anthology explores a fear that is buried deeply sometimes shallowly in our collective psyche I felt like he was prodding at something I would have preferred to have not been reminded of.Another thought if Stephen King s work is decidedly New England, Paul s is dis [...]
