PecuLIAR Fabrications: Short Fictions and Fake-News Christmas Letters (plus a few other treats tossed in when you weren’t looking) by Jeffery Viles
An ordinary Joe finds himself assaulted by deer and wrestling a wrestler. A devoted brother turned hit man prowls the Oscars with a gun in his belt. A cuckolded former big-league pitcher flees to Paris and meets a heart-stopping beauty. A father injured in a car wreck takes solace in a letter written to himself decades earlier. Fake-news Christmas letters squeeze absurdity to hilarious levels, while intermittent “word pictures” give the reader reasons to pause and ponder.
