Falling Over

Falling Over - James Everington James Everington presents us with a cabal of off-kilter stories that linger with you long after reading. If you're a fan of weird fiction then you'll be well-served here. Everington has a canny ability to conjure very real, contemporary characters in situations that appear normal but have an undercurrent of wrongness about them. I won't go through each and every story in the collection suffice to say that there is no weak story here. One of the nice things about these stories and their inherent oddness is that they are fulfilling more than most on second and third readings.

In fact, I would advice a reader to spend more time with this stories, re-read, analyse, and you'll be rewarded with a variety of meanings expertly layered but a one of the best young short stories writers around at the moment.
