Book Description

Imagine the worst day of your life. Now imagine that day in an airport. The eight authors of bring together eight stories of murder and mayhem in these linked stories -- tied together by a single, horrible visit to the airport.

From the grandfather in Joelle Charbonneau's SKATING AROUND THE LAW to a team of thugs from Jay Stringer, the stories here show what happens when all hell breaks loose on the concourse.

In addition to Charbonneau and Stringer, the collection boasts stories from John McFetridge (LET IT RIDE, DIRTY SWEET), Dave White (WHEN ONE MAN DIES, THE EVIL THAT MEN DO), Russel D. McLean (THE LOST SISTER, THE GOOD SON), Byron Quertermous (A LOAD OF QUERTERMOUS), Scott D. Parker (ROUND ONE), and Steve Weddle (NEEDLE Magazine).

From the introduction by Jason Pinter:
"Each member of DSD brings their own voice and perspective to this captivating story, the rush of noir carrying many different scents with it. Think about your worst day. Got it in your mind? Reliving it? Well, it’s a picnic with apple pie and wine spritzers compared to what you’re about to read.
So whether you’ve already been exposed to the wiles of the Do Some Damage crew, or you’re looking for a story with so much nitroglycerin that you won’t just miss your subway stop, but blow the station right off the map, check out this anthology. But when you realize your hands and feet are bound, you can’t get up from the seat, and strangers and peering at your slack-jawed reaction in jealousy, don’t say I didn’t warn you."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Plane, Boss, The Plane. November 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first book that I downloaded for that new fangled Kindle For Your Computer thing.

There's a typically smashing cover from John Hornor Jacobs and an introduction from Jason Pinter.

The first story,'Last Man Standing' by Russell D McLean, is just great. A couple of Scots take too much of a bite out the Big Apple. And choke on it. Or something. Spot on dialogue and great pacing.

'Last Man Standing' is followed by a beaut of a sucker punch from Dave White and the high standard continues all the way through to John McFetridge's smart and droll 'The Gladiator Resort'.

4.0 out of 5 stars This was a fun read. December 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the common thread of all the stories, and the multi-author format was fun. They had very different tone - some dark and some light. Some stories resolved well, while others left you hanging.

Check it out. I do not own a Kindle, but I have an iPod. I downloaded the Kindle app, and read the book on my iPod. Worked like a charm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story Collection September 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
TERMINAL DAMAGE is a great collection of short stories. Chances are, you'll enjoy some more than others. Every story is entertaining, but the inter-connected nature of this book is terrific and helps the whole become more than the sum of its parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Flight February 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I was late to the party when it comes to reading eBooks. Didn't see how I'd ever possibly be able to get on board. Then my mom bought me a Barnes & Noble Nook, and I ordered up a couple books. Actually enjoyed reading them. Now I have half-a-dozen or so waiting in queue to be read, right along with the 100+ of physical books I have that I need to get read. It goes on.

Still, not having a Kindle, I figured those releases that were Kindle-only wouldn't ever cross my radar. Until I got this fancy Samsung Fascinate smart phone that has a Kindle ap on it. No way I could ever read anything on a freakin' phone, right?


Releases like this collection from the fine folks at Do Some Damage are perfect. This is the second collection I've read exclusively on my phone, and I find it to be perfect. I don't slouch into an overstuffed chair to dig in like I would with a regular book (or even with my Nook, for that matter), but often enough I find myself in situations where I have some time and don't have anything with me to read. Out comes the phone, and I can read a story or two while waiting for whatever it is I'm waiting for. At the DMV. At the Jiffy Lube. Waiting for my kid after school. Hell, I finished this one lingering an extra 20 minutes in bed this morning.

What about the stories in Terminal Damage? Excellent, of course, which is to be expected. About half of these folks are already published authors, and the others have the ripe scent of inevitability all over their prose. The styles are as varied as the personalities of the writers, all touching on the airport theme that runs throughout.

So yeah, if you haven't bought this already, do it. Get in on the ground floor so you can brag about how you were reading these cats before everyone else was.
