Editorial Reviews


"Seymour Shubin knows his way around the short story because of the deceptive ease of his prose. It's a snap to be seduced by the facility of his writing because Shubin is nothing if not damned entertaining, which is one of his greatest qualities. But as you're swept into the momentum of any given tale, it's likewise easy to overlook all of his other considerable strengths: he's incredibly perceptive, touching, funny, compassionate and versatile, among a whole host of other qualities."
--- Mark SaFranko, from the introduction to Lonely No More

"Shubin understands that the recipe for good fiction is set in stone: (1) grab reader by the throat; (2) squeeze till limp."
--- Philadelphia Inquirer

"Shubin is simply an excellent writer, and somehow every single time he creates a novel that leaves me thinking about it for days afterward, wondering 'How, exactly, does he DO that?'"
--- Dianne Day, Author of Obsidian

About the Author

Seymour Shubin has been producing short stories and novels for over 50 years, beginning with the New York Times' bestseller Anyone's My Name. The novel has been taught in university criminology courses in the USA and "it is a book that has refused to simply lay down and die. Not only have readers continued to flood the author with letters, but the distinguished house of Gallimard published the book in France" [Fantastic Fiction]. Shubin has now written countless short stories and articles, and fifteen novels... including the Edgar Special Award winning The Captain. His latest book is the short story collection Lonely No More, which was released by Murder Slim Press in November, 2012.

Shubin works in the crime genre, but he does not write whodunits. There's no long wait to find who the criminal is, but there is a study of how they were driven to their crimes... and whether they can be stopped or redeemed. The focus is on the effects of crime, and often their emotional impact on both the victim and the perpetrator. Jonathan Hellerman hails Shubin's "first-rate writing, marvelous characterization, believable dialogue, plus compassion, intelligence", while Rod Lott acknowledges that "he arrives at a heartbreaking end that's a sucker-punch to the groin, and I mean that as a compliment. Few writers can make you feel that kind of pain."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In LONELY NO MORE, best-selling crime novelist Seymour Shubin turns his hand and his genius for piercing to the depths of the human soul to the short story. In each of the sixteen tales in this excellent collection the reader is witness to a different and often chilling slice of life. Sometimes Shubin warms our hearts, sometimes he makes us smile, more often he makes us shudder--but always he makes us see a little bit of ourselves in the longings and struggles of his characters. "The short story is an imploding universe," author Colum McCann tells us. "It has all the boil of energy inside it. A novel has shrapnel going all over the place. You can have a mistake in a novel. A short story has to be perfect." He might well have been describing the stories we are treated to in LONELY NO MORE.
