The Tethered Goat: A Collection of Short Stories from Gary Bonn
Laugh; cry; feel; think: Bonn is one of the exceptional writers who can make you do all of those at once, whose writing style makes it difficult at times to breathe because you’re transported and they don’t breathe the same air in that story.
If there is a cutting edge of storytelling, Bonn is ahead of it, sharpening the blade.

Clarendon House books which feature work by Gary Bonn
Blaze: The Inner Circle Writers' Group Flash Fiction Anthology 2019
Writers are spellbinders, wizards, witches, working their magic with words, entrancing and enchanting us. Not for nothing does the word ‘spell’ mean a sequence of letters and a form of words used as a magical charm or incantation. In these tales, the sorcery has been restricted so that its glamour has to work in the space of fifty, five hundred or a thousand words: and work it does, as you will see. From disturbing darkness to light-hearted laughter, the authors within weave their wizardry, making you weep and laugh, feel and think, shiver and gasp, always wanting to turn the page.
