Good Monday to all.
This week I'd like to share with you a short story collection I read over the weekend: A Change of Mind and Other Stories by Nick Wilford. Some of you may already know Nick from the local blogosphere, but if you don't you can visit him here.
A Change of Mind and Other Stories is a collection of short stories and one novella. In A Change of Mind (the novella), we're introduced to Reuben, a miserable man who goes through life expecting the worst out of people and getting everything he expected. He's resigned to living his miserable life until his miserable death until one day he's offered the chance to change it all. Confidence, popularity and happiness are just a surgical procedure away, but what happens when you change who you are?
The other tales are much shorter than the novella, but they all offer glimpses of people struggling with doubt, insecurity and loneliness. The collection isn't without it's humor; The Dog God, and A Hole in One are particularly absurd. All in all it's a great little collection.
You can find A Change of Mind and Other Stories on Amazon.
