EAT THE POOR is a collection of short stories that can be most easily described by short descriptions of each work. In “Cannibal”, four characters try to survive life in the year XX22, where resources are low, but satire is high. In its sequel, “Darling”, theological questions at a drug fueled bash. In the two short scientist based micro stories, science kills. In “Model 40”, sometimes birthdays don’t go well, even for machines. In “What she was like…” a witch has touching moments with her son. And in the last three stories, the influence of film noir on this author becomes evident, as private detectives, and other weirdos go where they shouldn’t for the sake of cash. This collection is part of the author’s goal to have fun as a writer, when applicable, have a laugh, and use life for what it can be, which is an inspiration for growth and occasional dabbling in nonsense.
