Collision: STories by J.S. Breukelaar

In the next couple of hours/days I’ll be posting some reviews, interviews and just general stuff about Collision, my new collection of stories and a novella out from Meerkat Press. For now though, thanks are due to Meerkat Press, especially Tricia Reeks, who is as smart and unstoppable as they come. Matthew Bialer, I literally wouldn’t be here without you. Seb Doubinsky, Angela Slatter, John Langan, Stephen Graham Jones, Kathe Koja, thanks doesn’t cut it. To author/illustrator Keith Rosson for the illustrations. Thanks to editors of some of the early stories and editors everywhere.💐 Thanks to early reviewers and podcasters for letting me ramble. But readers, thank you above all. You’re the ones I do this for. And to my first readers, John Breukelaar Troy Palmer, Isabella Breukelaar, Jack Breukelaar, endless love. 💘

NY Journal of Books Reviews Collision.

Townsend Walker over at NY Journal Of Books had this drop today – 15 February EST, the day Collision: Stories is unleashed on the world. Needless to say, I’m honored, stoked and you know, overwhelmed.

“J. S. Breukelaar is a writer of obvious talent, demonstrated over and over in this collection.”
The 12 stories in this collection feature horror, fantasy, and weirdness. The stories and the author are promoted as such. But the reader will probably find the more realistic stories to be her best, and many are quite fine— “Union Falls,” “Fairy Tale,” “Fixed,” and War Wounds.”

This is Horror boosts Collision

“No stranger to horror and dark fiction, this collection from Breukelaar showcases her best short fiction to date, and a new novella makes it one of the most anticipated titles for 2019. “

Bob Pastorella, This is Horror.

Thanks to This Is Horror for this signal boost. Had a great time chatting with Bob and Michael last time I was on this killer podcast. Listen to Anya Martin talk about sleeping with monsters, now!

Alvaro Zinos-Amaro reviews Collision

Alvaro Zinos-Almaro reviews Collision, beautifully, at Intergalactic Medicine Show. More than honored by this.

Though she wasn’t born in the South, her stories evoke for me the same drawling sense of pocket-universe skewedness as Howard Waldrop’s best, perhaps filtered through a more contemporary sensibility; a time-lapsed version of Stephen Graham Jones’s back-country, tooth-bearing fictions, with disquieting details lovingly blown up and lingered on; and all of this enlivened by injections of surrealism a la Leonora Carrington, with touches of William Gibson-esque techno-estrangement. It’s a mind-expanding brew.

I have a story in this called “His Name is Love,” based on the Stephen King story, “The Man Who Loved Flowers.”

Here is an excerpt.

I’ve been asked to dinner a lot. I reek of dead flowers. I like men, even after everything that’s happened. I mean I like women more, but I don’t see myself in that way. I want to take off my face, have a nap. I always want to nap. Sometimes I want to nap forever, lie curled up on a bed of petals and just go to sleep, dream that I’ve remembered my name. But that’s just guilt talking. Dusk isn’t a good time for any of us.
