This Will Not End Well by J.B. Stevens


This Will Not End Will is a collection of short crime stories. The pieces are fast, exciting, funny, and heartfelt. All four works were formerly included in prestigious magazines.

The opening piece, The Airport Hilton, was featured in Bristol Noir. It is about a down-on-his-luck pawn broker in Atlanta, who stumbles into a situation that may be too good to be true.

The second story,  The Fighting Squid,  was showcased in Shotgun Honey. It's a funny, crime-caper about two brothers, and one’s hatred for invertebrates.

The third story,  The Tooth Fairy Deserves Peace,  is a hilarious take on the inner lives of mythical beings. It was in Slackjaw Comedy. The story covers the love affair between Krampus and the Fairy Godmother, as well as a SEAL Team 6 hit squad.

The closing story,  Bobo and the Knife,  is a dark noir tale about a sicario and a drug dealer who operates out of the circus. It was featured in Pulp Modern.
