I was given a copy of this book to read and review. I have to say that it was a pleasant surprise, as often short story collections can be a bit dull, with perhaps one good tale that rises above the filler. Jim is Writing has nothing but excellent stories, most of which remind me a lot of the quirky tales of the halcyon days of sci-fi and horror (the thirties to the sixties). All are well-written, characterized, and quite a few of the stories have twists that aren't as obvious as they might seem. I will definitely be looking for more of Shaun Adams' work.
