100 Jolts actually features one hundred short shots of fiction guaranteed to stun. Arnzen has honed his craft to deliver the highest voltage using the fewest words.
According to the author "Horror is the genre of the jolt, the shock, the spark. The horror storys conflict is always a matter of life and death, but death...almost always comes too soon—thats why we fear it."
And now readers have a new reason to be afraid. One hundred new reasons!
From the grotesque to the hilarious these bits of micro-fiction will keep you entertained long after you put the book down.
"Simply stated, theres nothing like this collection of ultra-short fiction. Arnzen continually impressed me with his punchy narrative style and endless images of grue, gore, and gristle. An evening with this book will leave you feeling like youve been gutted like a dead fish and hung out to dry." —Tom Monteleone, author of The Blood of the Lamb
"Avant-horror is all about trespass (of narrative limits, of readerly expectations, of social decorum) and all about the disruption of what our culture thinks it needs to repress in order to remain whole and functioning. In these 100 wild-eyed fictive concentrates, Michael A. Arnzen, the wizard of outré, asks our culture to think again. And again." —Lance Olsen, author of Hideous Beauties
"100 Jolts delivers far more than is promised by its title; with this magnificent collection of literate and disturbing short-shorts, some which are among the darkly funniest Ive ever read, Arnzen can rightfully claim his place as the Donald Barthelme of horror. This book is a remarkable achievement." —Gary A. Braunbeck, author of In Silent Graves and Graveyard People
