D. L. Simpson

about this book: Rebirth of the American Short Story is my attempt to rekindle interest in this oft overlooked art form. The beauty of the short story form is that it gives the rare opportunity to get to the heart of matters with only a brief narrative to provide the vehicle. Characters come to life and reveal their true nature through dialog and actions readily apparent to the reader. How many times have we begun a novel thoroughly engrossed with the story's premise only to loose interest in the endless descriptive narrative.

Rebirth of the American Short Story offers six original short stories dealing with themes of death, loss, revenge, redemption, love, lust and fate's ironic twists. Purposely sparse writing allows the reader to "flavor the stew to their taste".

Dealing primarily within the context of suspense and thriller, I do not totally adhere to those tenets as set in stone. The characters and stories take on a spirit and life of their own, following through to an organic conclusion regardless of genre.
