Adam Maxwell's first collection of short stories is inventive, funny, dark, and hugely entertaining. Effortlessly fusing pop culture, gunplay, and simians, Dial M For Monkey contains a vibrant mixture of short stories - and short-short stories including 'Happiness is a Warm Gun' which featured in McSweeney's Internet Tendency.

Very quick reads but that doesn't mean they aren't great. Mr. Maxwell has realized if you know what story you're telling, you don't have to be superfluous. I will be re-reading this, I already know.

Very short and very punchy. The focus displayed by the author is brilliant. Each story showcases a single idea and is in and out like a flash. You'll be ruminating on the concepts and clever little twist for long after you're finished though.

Loved it.
