I highly encourage you to consider purchasing a copy of Matt Wallace’s first short-story collection, hopefully the first of many, titled “The Next Fix”.
If you’re not familiar with Matt, let me give you a brief summary: he’s one of the nicest, most welcoming people you’ll meet in this industry, no matter what side of the page you’re part of. Matt was one of the first to serialize fiction in the podcast format, but his accomplishments range across a host of print, e-zine, and other formats.
All that wouldn’t really matter if Matt’s fiction were escalated into notoriety by some kind of inner circle, a phenomenon I’ve seen before. Let me dispel any illusions you might have: Matt is the real thing. He is one hell of a writer, gifted with a sharp, fluid style that lends itself to rich worlds, characters, and plots. While Matt’s favorite realm seems to be the urban distopia, many of his stories stray far from that mold.
I highly encourage you to pre-order this publication from Apex Book Company. By doing so, you’ll be in for a tome full of twelve razor-sharp stories spanning a host of unconventional, often terrifying plot lines. It’s a good dose of fiction for a horror or dark science fiction fan.
