Nigel Bird and his stories have appeared in so many places that it’s about time the best of them were brought together in one collection.

His work has also received so much praise that this collection should be a must for the fan of the short story, particularly those fans with a taste for noir, crime or unusual fiction.

Praise for his work and, indeed, for some of the stories collected here includes:

'A tremendous writer.' Donald Ray Pollock (The Devil All The Time)

'A rare talent.' Allan Guthrie (Bye Bye Baby)

‘I was surprised by every story. These are short, punchy, thoughtful, hard as a punch, but sometimes they dig in and squeeze. It's dirty stuff, done beautifully.” Anthony Neil Smith (Yellow Medicine, Psychosomatic, Hogdoggin')

'It won't take long to realise he is also one of the best writers out there on the noir scene' Ian Ayris (Abide With Me)

‘So nice to read a story with this much heart in it.’ Patti Abbott (Discount Noir, Monkey Justice)

‘Great Stuff.’ Charlie Stella (Charlie Opera, Johnny Porno)

‘Brilliantly razor-sharp, jagged slice of life.’ Paul D Brazill (Guns Of Brixton, Roman Dalton)

‘I sought out everything I could from him. I dare you to read and not do the same.’ Chris F Holm (8 Pounds)

‘Took my breath away...Powerful.’ Kathleen A Ryan (Playing With Matches, Women Of Mystery)

‘Nigel Bird continues to amaze,’ Naomi Johnson (The Drowning Machine)

‘Nigel Bird screamed onto the crime scene with his story "Beat on the Brat," winner of last year's Watery Grave International competition. And with good reason. It's a sharply written tale about the cost of loyalty.’ Chris Rhatigan (Watch You Drown)

‘Grim, but really good.’ Ian Rankin (Inspector Rebus)

The work here has found homes in some of the finest places around and has passed through the gates of many great editors. It’s a stunning collection that deserves to be savoured over and over again.

Available in EPUB, Kindle and PDF formats.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
