What people are saying about the stories of Steve Evans

What a delight these stories are to read. Steve Evans captures the humour and hardships, foibles and follies, and so many of those unexpected turns that punctuate our lives. Highly recommended.

~ Craig Cormick, author of A Funny Thing Happened at 27,000 Feet, winner of the Queensland Premier’s Literary Award

 

These idiosyncratic tales are tantalising segments of lives. Love stories (which also happen to include murder, abuse, retribution, poignancy, contract-killers, break-ups, comedy, exploitation and an orgy of conflagration) about humans of all ages and backgrounds; each story bearing its own atmosphere, its own world. ‘We Like You’ is one of the best sci-fi stories I’ve read, combining future tech with the metaphysical.

~ Rob Walker, author of Square Pegs

 

In a terrifically impressive collection of short short-fictions, Steve Evans takes us on a tour of the metaphorical sinkholes of suburbia. Via his observant eye and febrile imagination, we behold the mischievous and manic, the tawdry and tragic, and more. We come upon familiar scenes that then glow in a broadband delivery of hyper-realism. Second-hand books become a successful stalking strategy. A private letter-burning becomes a communal cleansing. In a final afternoon tea, a potential inheritance is consumed in gold-leaf-infused cakes. A deposit-secured wedding cake, a promised book of window paintings, a normal Bay-City tram … never arrive.

~ Moya Costello, author of The Office as a Boat: a chronicle
