Yeah, I really did cry as I read 'Our Future Together'. And I'm not much of a crier.

It was fascinating to get to see inside the mind of a very talented writer. These stories are both hilarious and touching. And so well written. It was one of those books where I started noticing and appreciating the word choice in addition to getting a good experience. I was sad when I finished the book.

I'm glad SN is finding so much success as of late and people are finally recognizing his genius. ;)

Thanks for sharing yourself with us.

1. Our Future Together - Story*
2. In Back of Time - Poem
3. Postcards From a Book Tour - Essay*
4. Everything Equals Nothing - Story
5. City of Dreams - Poem
6. The Red Plastic Bat - Story*

9. Transformation - Poem
10. Dr. Mann - Essay

*My Favorites. I laughed (Postcards), got a little teary (Our Future Together), had a moment of melancholy (The Red Plastic Bat), cringed a little (Dead Cats) and laughed again (So you want to be a writer). If you're like me, a fan of short stories, you won't be disappointed. This book is a steal at 99 cents.

A compilation of poems, chapters and short stories from a writer's mind. I suppose all of us who write have items such as these stacked and stuffed in corners: poems and ideas, half-written stories, things written on napkins and tucked away. The poetry reminds me a bit of Rod McKuen, and if that isn't an age-giveaway, nothing is. It is also one of the highest compliments I could pay anyone. Scott has shared bits and pieces of himself with us in this compilation, and I am thankful to have it. It gives me hope that someday, all my napkin poems and half-written stories might see the light of day.

Thanks Scott, for being brave enough to share.

I first bought this collection for a school project I was conducting. This book seemed not only interesting, and not enaging per se, but more of a different insight on a world of an author.

Scott Nicholson brought out some important ideas in his stories, including some that people take a life time to understand. To truly comprehend the magnitude in his words, opens up a broader perspective on not only literature but daily life lessons as well.

The story engagement was a little wary for me. The story lines were well established and his writing style is somewhat addicting, but I found the collection overall lacking. I believe that the connection to the reader was not there, that we felt and understood what he meant and what he was trying to present through stories, but I just couldn't relate or even attempt to relate to what was happening in the stories. The mixture of poems, essays, and stories was a little deceiving at first too. The stories were much more presentable in the connection than the poems. I felt the poems were more clever phrases verses clever meanings.

Overall, this book was interesting and opened a few new perspectives for me.

I'm a huge fan of Scott Nicholson! However, I'm not a huge fan of short story's written by anyone. I guess as far as short story's go....some are much better than others, keeping that in mind I guess I'd give the book a rough 3-1/2.

You find a little bit of everything in this book: poems, letters, articles, chapters of his novels, and short stories. This is a collection of stories that show the wide range of Scott Nicholson's writing. They are poignant, dark, sad at times but also very funny. If you don't know Scott Nicholson's writing or if you simply want to find out more about him, this is a good book to start!
