An International Fiction Award-winner, Different Kinds of Dead displays Ed Gorman's talents as a masterful storyteller. This collection offers the murder-themed dark tales Different Kinds of Dead, in which a lonely car salesman learns life lessons from a dead woman sitting shotgun in his car; Deathman, about a killer who enjoys juicy steaks prior to murdering his victims; and A Girl Like You, about a misunderstood teenage boy who endures a fleeting and painful romance with a ghost.
Gorman also touches on futuristic fiction, as Loverboy offers a peek into a marriage strained by a husband's addiction to cyber-sex parlors and holographic women. His protagonists, gritty and gruff, are strangely likeable, and his writing, according to Mystery News, is powerful, disturbing and often poetic. Download and start listening now!
