My Birth and Other RegretsWelcome to a world where the irrational and unexpected is just a way of life and normality is reserved to be nothing than a perpetuation of victimizationA House in the sky – Existence amongst human statues – A decomposing corpse in a water cubed desert – Mysterious conversations with an old oil painting – Western erotica by way of Webster’s Dictionary – Heavy Metal infants in utero – A grotesue rotting ailment – Coma based. A pretty great collection that is somehow both silly and somber Herein you'll find about 20 or so fast paced short stories that blend elements of horror and bizarro in unexpected ways each one sounding like its own distinct thunderclap It's not very often you'll find a book like this that is full of only winners but Fitts manages to pull it off This kind of stuff is right up my alley Yeah I really liked it

Entry from subtle to surreal hallucinatory to horrifying morose to madness – all handled by the masterful mind of musician and storyteller Ben FittsBen Fitts's debut shows him as a talent to be watched In My Birth and Other Regrets he combines the humorous the horrifying the eccentric and the absurd to create to an excellent unpredictable collection Ben Arzate author of The Story Of The Y and The Complete idiot's Guide To Saying Goodbye. This wasn’t good but there were some fun ideas here My two main complaints are the appalling abundance of typosmisspellingsetc seriously there were multiple per page I don’t think anyone bothered editing this or even glancing over it before deciding it was finished and the lack of substance in the stories The stories are written as kind of a booklet of story ideas or that’s how it seems to me They’re kind of told in a fairy tale format where everything is pure telling and no showing The stories were very short which is not a bad thing in itself but they seemed like skeletons of a story than an actual story Like someone’s telling me “Here’s an idea I have” or “This is a dream I had once” My enjoyment of the stories also dropped off toward the end I particularly enjoyed the metalhead one – I thought it was pretty funny But after that the stories became a little annoying The one with the “softboy” band stood out as bad to me probably partially because I had never heard the term before and am unfamiliar with its usage The one with the buff guys and the dude trying to work out was kind of like a teenager who still thinks high school works like it does in 1980s movies The fishboy one really put me off because of the hardcore patriarchal “your body is simply a vessel it doesn’t matter” biophobic garbageA bit edgy purely telling not showing and full of typos and mistakes but still the ideas were fun I think most of them could make great short stories if they were actually fleshed out An entertaining read at least
