Adam Maxwell's first collection of short stories is inventive, funny, dark, and hugely entertaining. Effortlessly fusing pop culture, gunplay, and simians, Dial M For Monkey contains a vibrant mixture of short stories - and short-short stories including 'Happiness is a Warm Gun' which featured in McSweeney's Internet Tendency.
124 pages and approximately 20 short stories.
Soul selling, chickens moving house, disputes with noisy, Elvis-loving neighbours, testicular ruptures and what does happen when you put a loaded gun in a microwave and press START?
A couple of hours enjoyable reading with this collection.

Assuming I ever get the TBR pile under control, I'd be interested in trying more of his stuff.
