    1. The First Cut by John Kenyon is a terrific collection of short stories and it is really in many ways a book of advice about how to bury a body, how to get along with your neighbors, and how to co-exist with the crazy lunatics who dwell in our world. The first selection "Cut" is probably worth the price of admission alone. It is a story about moonlighting while working for a mobster and an organ transplant company. It talks about how James once enjoyed his job immensely, but then came Hollywood a [...]

    2. John Kenyon is a classy writer.In ‘The First Cut’, he offers a collection of stories that is a pleasure to read.One of the features of his work is the ability to plant a seed in a reader’s mind and then chop down the plant as soon as it appears so that another seed can take its place. There were times when I thought I had outsmarted the author and knew where a piece was going, only to find that it was Mr Kenyon who had the upper hand every time. This kind of loop-the-loop is a lot of fun t [...]

    3. John Kenyon cuts deep with this superior collection of crime shorts. Quality was high throughout and the stories are peppered with a sly sense of humour. Won't highlight favourites as you will benefit from reading straight through. If you have enjoyed other Snubnose Press collections by Keith Rawson or Dan O'Shea then you will enjoy The First Cut as well.Snubnose Press have been critisized in the past because of typos and formatting issues. Glad to say that The First Cut had no such issues which [...]

    4. John Kenyon has a clever but twisted mind. The stories remind me of a more macabre O. Henry. Just when you think you know where it's going, it takes a sharp left. The nature of collections is that not every story is a home run. Kenyon has a few base-clearing grand slams though to go along with several solo shots, triples and a rare double. Standout stories are "Sinking in the Sea of Love," "Not So Calm Not So Bright," "238," "Cut," & "A Wild & Crazy Night."

    5. Not my usual genre of choice but I'm so glad I got out of my comfort zone. Surprising twists, charming (but not too twee) attention to detail. One of those short story collections that begs you to read just one more before you turn out the lights. I'll never look at organ transplant coolers the same way again.
