This collection serves up 11 nasty bits of Brit Grit for you to sample. They're not going to go down easy, but you don't want that, right? You didn't come here for sparkly vampires, boy wizards, and easy reading - you can get that elsewhere. No, you're here for stories that grab your nuts and don't let go. Tales that beat you down and do nasty things to you while you're out cold. That's what I'm giving you here - and you'll take it and like it!

A security guard gets more than he bargained for when he pays a visit to The Carpenter's Arms; two women cause all manner of mayhem when they suffer from a bout of Bus Rage; a mother's death brings about a permanent rift between brother and sister in The Short Goodbye; and the Stanton brothers cut a kneecapping, bone-breaking, ball-busting, sweary swathe through the underworld in The Greatest Show in Town, The Beautiful Game, One Sixteenth and The Fight.

This is strong stuff for readers who like their fiction dark, violent and plain-spoken.

As one reviewer put it on the Amazon UK website: Martin Stanley has what so many self-published authors lack. ..the ability to write really well at sentence level. For me this means that there's nothing to jar, no self-conscious arranging of uncomfortable words and you're not reading chunks of somebody's prose, you're watching scenes play out before you. Mr Stanley has real talent...

Grab this collection in the US here or in the UK

Martin,

Welcome again to the Book Bazaar and congratulations on your new book!

KindleBoards is a Kindle fan and reader forum. As you browse KindleBoards, keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed in the Book Bazaar. (You've posted your book thread in the right place; this is just our standard welcome that we place in all book threads. :))

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then. You may modify the latest post to reflect new information.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread: Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum: http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,36.0.html. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

What do a security guard on a fateful pub visit, two women suffering from a bout of bus rage, a couple of heroin addicts, a dysfunctional brother and sister, and two very violent criminal brothers have in common? Well, they're all free for the next couple of days in my diamond-hard collection of crime and noir stories The Greatest Show in Town and other shorts.

US folks can download it here The Greatest Show in Town and other shorts

and UK folks here The Greatest Show in Town and other shorts
