Product Description

Product Description

The Goldfish Heist And Other Stories is an almost exhaustive collection of Jay Stringer's short fiction to date. Made up of both tales that have been published before and stories that have never been seen, this is a collection that covers the variety of Stringer's output; Comedy to noir, urban crime to hardboiled mystery and adult to young adult.

Please note that this collection contains all four of the stories included in Faithless Street. There is plenty of extra material here to make the purchase worthwhile for those who already have the previous collection, but once you have this there will be nothing new for you in Faithless Street.

Bullet For Bauser
Lost Profits

More About the Author

Jay Stringer was born in Walsall, West Midlands, in 1980. He would like everyone to know he's not dead yet. He's worked as a zoo keeper, a bookseller, a video editor and a call centre lackey.

His work is a mixture of crime, mystery and social fiction, and Jay coined the term "social pulp" to describe the mix. He likes to write about the difference between the 'haves' and the 'have nots,' and to show that violence and crime are sharp and brutal acts that are done for a reason, and by those who have reason to do them.

His first novel,Old Gold, is due from Thomas & Mercer in July 2012, and he blogs every thursday at DoSomeDamage.Com. You can also catch him at Twitter under his own name.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable short stories with a novel twist. 10 April 2013

Concisely builds his characters and compels you to read on. These short stories have formed the basis for his very good Old Gold which was also a very good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what i thought it would be. 5 April 2013

Load of short stories based around the low lifes of society, without a moral ending. Basically a guide to how to rip people off.

4.0 out of 5 stars New writer of interest 23 Mar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Short stories set in downtrodden communities in UK and US. Quirky, with realistic dialogue, I read this in one sitting. Few typos and confusion between alternative spellings( neighbor, mum) as well as apostrophe errors. Otherwise 5 star.
