New book coming out this month!

Very excited to announce that my 11th collection of odd stories will be out this month. Editing is done and now it just needs formatting and it will be good to go. Unlike many of my previous books, this one has fewer attempts at humor and is focused more on letting the reader enjoy brief bursts of weirdness in their otherwise non-weird lives. If there are any reviewers interested in getting a copy, just shoot me an email at lance@lancemanion.com

This is the Forward;

 

FORWARD

 

So, it’s New Year’s Day, 2022 and I’m watching a movie called Always Be My Maybe. The plot is irrelevant for the purposes of this Forward, but suffice it to say it’s a good movie and I’m enjoying it when all of a sudden, Keanu Reeves says something that really captures exactly what the last ten years of posting stories on my website and publishing books has been all about:

“See… that right there… is what it’s all about. Laboring in obscurity. Starving and struggling. The man who embraces his mediocre nothingness… shines greater… than any.”

In fairness, I haven’t really been starving and struggling implies some sort of effort, which has also been entirely lacking. But the embracing my mediocre nothingness? I defy you to name anyone who has embraced it to the degree I have.

Obviously, if that person does exist, I won’t know them. By definition, if they have even the slightest modicum of notoriety, then I win.

If I haven’t heard of them, I’m going to assume you’re just making up a name to be a naysaying tool. So, I win again.

This book doesn’t try to be as funny as some of the others, instead, exploring the odd in an attempt to get a certain part of your brain tingling.

Another attempt to shine.
