Book Description

When it comes to stories (and other things) I believe that size doesn't matter. It's what you do with it that counts.

Here you will find 31 quickies. Romance, horror, comedy, and a bit of science fiction. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even buy. You may love them or hate them, but you won't forget them.

I promise.

I am Splinker. Read me roar.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new voice May 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This a fabulous collection of trendy, smart, rude, funny, creepy short stories that are in my humble opinion are the best I've read so far. Adam Sifre has written stories that haunt me, made me laugh, ponder the real world and the one playing in my head.

These stories aren't just written for and about the boxer-wearing wedge-pulling set. They are written for everyone that appreciates real language and at times tawdry events. I found that they are addictive and will evoke a full range of emotions. Be prepared to blush, cry, laugh and breakout in goose bumps.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable collection August 24, 2012
By Ignite
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a really eclectic group of short stories which I found very accessible and easy to read. They included a couple of post apocalyptic stories and even these were very different from one another. One followed the last man alive whereas one took the stance that the Artificial Intelligences were keeping everything running. Many of the stories had a twist to them, or were from an unusual viewpoint. There's a touch of horror, a good dollop of humour, all human life is here.

There was a real `story-teller' tone to the writing. It was like having a friend tell you a tale over a glass of wine. A very enjoyable collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Had a Good Time in Adam's Shorts! November 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fine collection of stories. The tales run the gamut from humor to horror, with an occasional story managing to comfortably mix the the two. Here you will find ordinary people interacting with murderers and revenge seekers caught in the act of getting exactly what they want.
The stories made me laugh and wince; one or two of them even made me think. (Yeah, I know. Can you believe it?)

Meet a hoarder who houses a very special collection.

Set off on an unforgettable fishing trip.

Learn the horrific "true" story behind Jolly Old St. Nick. (Believe me,'d BETTER watch out!)

My favorite? "Coffee" - watch as Starbucks goes to great lengths to provide an "inspiring" experience for its customers.

I enjoyed this one immensely and look forward to reading much, much more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny yet probing April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What kept me reading the short stories in "Inside My Shorts" were the pivots on characters, each of them unique, neurotic, or just plain morbid. Their interiors might be as individual or shocking in their intents while they go about seemingly mundane lives.

Sifre has a natural bent for black humor and a subtle approach to its depiction. His style is flowing and detailed with ordinary life while he uses details to heighten the psychology of his stories. They are quick in the telling but rich in idea - an automated street cleaner's attachment, avenging Christmas dwarves, couples that fatally part while fishing or in the midst of annoying flies, a murderer's tweets, scenes in Starbucks. This is a funny yet probing book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, inventive, and a bit obscene April 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much enjoyed reading this collection. It was great to be able to read for 30 minutes and feel like I really accomplished something (since I was able to blow through 5 stories at a time). The length of each is ideal for reading for pleasure, and the stories are well-written and inventive. There was some obscene language and situations that I felt weren't necessary and didn't contribute to the quality of the stories, but other than that I wholeheartedly enjoyed these stories. I am anxious to read more from this author.

More About the Author

Everyone loves a Splinker.

I didn't want to add anything to the above, but the site requires a minimum of 100 characters. You would think that an author willing to write less than 100 characters about himself would be a rarity worth encouraging.
