    So finished reading Patreon Stories Volume Two last night. I expected a collection of Brian's fiction that I had already read. Boy did he over deliver! This book is in three sections. Short stories, poetry and some early stories. I actually enjoyed the early work and you can see the writer Brian has become in them. Poetry at its finest is a short story written in a poetic cadence. Brian generally delivers on that. I really expected the short stories to be repeats of things I have already read, as I have already read all his CD collections. Brian had other ideas and there are some stories here that are new to me and several really packed a punch. I think I have said this before but I will repeat myself. Brian's writing reminds me a lot of the writing of Stewart O'nan. That is a big complement. If you are expecting all out horror you will not get what you want. Much of Brian's stories are not horror at all, not to say there is not some mixed in. Brian's stories at their heart are about the human condition. I have said before that reading Stewart O'nan is like looking through a window at people living their lives. Many of these stories gave me the same feeling.

    A side note for Brian. In your story notes of The Last Beautiful Day you mention that it was inspired by an actual news story. This happened with my sister and I can tell you that those days are imprinted in my psyche and have been part of shaping who I am as a man. The story brought a flood of emotions, in part because life is throwing a lot at me right now, but not in a bad way.

    This book contained stories that are exactly what I needed wright now and I thank you for that!
    Couldn't agree more with you assessment of Brian's writing. Makes me downright shiver at times.

    If you have not read Stewart O'nan you need to give him a read!

    Nice! That's quite a bit of stuff thus far. I need to add at least another 6 bookcases and Brian will get his own. If/when that ever happens.

    All of that is stunning especially the remarque. Unfortunately my Patreon is only at the limited level so I have to be satisfied admiring yours.

    I really love what Brian is doing over there and glad I'm in a position to be able to support him at a higher level. All our support matters no matter the level. So I wouldn't consider your support limited at all, Martin.

    By limited I meant that I only get up through the Limited editions of the books. I feel that I get great value from Mr. Freeman's Patreon subscription.
