I recently purchased issue 8 of Bust Down the Door and Eat All the Chickens for the super cheap here:
I read half of it the day I got it and I just finished the other half of it.
It is only 76 pages long, but still, I read the entire thing, which I don't normally do. Actually, I didn't read the whole thing. There is one story I didn't read. But one story out of 76 pages is pretty damned good.
Mike Young's "Share This Too," starts off the collection. It is about teeth and a nun and you would like it very much. Mike Young co-edits Noo Journal, which I like.
Adam Breckenridge has his first published story in this issue, called "Bang Bang." I think it is my favorite story or my second favorite story. There is the right amount of shooting in his story. The right amount of shooting is very much shooting. Many stories (boring ones that I don't like) would probably be better with more shooting.
Adam, please write more stories. I will read them.
Also, Blake Butler's story about the tv show Friends, was wonderful. Blake only writes really good things, I think. If he writes bad things, he probably keeps them where no one can read them. Blake if you write bad things, can I see them? Please email me the bad things that you write.
I also really like Camerson Pierce's story and Darby Larson's story (it is my favorite or second favorite). Darby Larson edits Abjective, which I like very much.
I couldn't read Rhys Hughes story. I am sorry Rhys Hughes. I tried to read it three times. I am sure it is a good story. Rhys Hughes is a Welsh writer. Maybe I do not like Welsh people. I do not know any Welsh people.
Sam Pink has a good story, Aaron Sitze has a good story, D. Harlan Wilson has an interesting thing. I am going to call it a 'thing.' I think that is all right.
Ofelia Hunt is the only girl writer in this issue. Bradley Sands does not have to be politically correct. He publishes good writers. You cannot fault someone for their penis unless their penis has committed crimes against you.
Matthew Simmons's story is the last one in Bust. It has tiny horses in it. I approve of tiny horses.
There are also two book reviews. I do not read book reviews. I have 17 books on my floor that I haven't read and reading a book review would feel like I was snubbing those books. In life, when I have nothing else to do, I will read book reviews. Until then, I am going to read books.
Also, I think my life would be greatly altered and improved if I had a water gun full of vinegar. Whenever someone said something offensive or bothersome, I would shoot them with the vinegar gun. Some people might redeem themselves by thinking this was funny and then I would be friends with them. The people that did not redeem themselves would just smell like vinegar.
