Product description

Product Description

Shoot Me, Jesus is a “novel in short stories,” what writer Jane Lawless called “erotic magic realism with a Southwestern spiciness.” Humor is an essential element of each story. The eleven linked tales move forward and backward in time in the manner of flashbacks and foreshadowing in a novel, though the plots are always character-driven. It is their realizations, insights, and inner changes that move the collection along.

While the characters retain their essences from story to story, the details of their lives, from their occupations to their sexual proclivities, change with each story. Their identities are malleable, yet who they are remains consistent. They develop by a process of accretion, a slow accumulation of personality traits.

The author wondered how things might have turned out for the protagonist if he liked men instead of women, or was poor rather than comfortable. A mere ten seconds can mean the difference between life and death. The smallest event can have enormous repercussions down the road, a kind of “butterfly effect” on a human life. Those are among the concepts explored in this anthology of short stories.

About the Author

Brian Allan Skinner has written and published more than 120 short stories which have appeared in small press and literary magazines, as well as anthologies, in the United States, Canada, and Ireland. He is a former poetry and non-fiction reviewer for Kirkus Reviews and a production artist for Scientific American Newsletters in New York City. In 2015, Brian moved to Taos, New Mexico, which he first visited with his grandmother on a cross-country train trip aboard the Santa Fe Chief in 1960. He quickly settled into the thriving artistic and literary communities of Taos where he draws sustenance and inspiration from his many artist and writer friends.
