My new(ish) collection of short stories, flash fictions and odd bitlets of absurdism is available for free on Kindle from June 21 to June 23. Seriously, it’s free – just click on the link or the cover to get to the Amazon page and download it.
Note: you don’t have to have a Kindle to read a Kindle book. There are readers for lots of devices.
It has been getting some great reviews, including an nice one from The Midwest Book Review:
The world could be a very much different place with a few alterations. The quality of the change is up to the reader to decide. “Pirate Therapy” is a collection of short stories from Mark A. Rayner as he presents many intriguing scenarios of the world gone awry. From problems of time travel, to the publicity problems of the Gods themselves and more, “Pirate Therapy” is a humorous and fun read that those seeking a good dose of comedy should love.
Some headlines from other reviewers:
Awesome, Odd & Hilarious!
Off the Hinges Crazy Good
A Cure for What Ails You
Ever wondered what might happen if your therapist was replaced by a pirate? Or how disquieting it would be to receive postcards from your future self?
If William Shatner was elected President of the United States, what would his inaugural address sound like? Mark A. Rayner tackles these, and stranger, questions in his collection of short stories, essays and flash fiction that thrum with the absurd and hum with alienation, all to a humorous beat.
Jesus contends with dinosaurs. Marcel Duchamp describes what happens to a Dadaist who has a monkey’s tail grafted to his butt. Whether he is explaining how Anne of Green Gables destroyed the world, or outlining Thor’s new PR strategy, Rayner entertains with wit, humor and an imagination that is one step short of certifiable.
