On a rainy night in Little Egypt, Jeep Mabry shows up on Slim’s doorstep with an old mining colleague to interrupt Slim and Anci’s Scrabble game, bringing more trouble than just misspelled words.  Snake Dornan, a nickname he earned with particularly slippery schemes, bought up a few nearby houses in foreclosure, and rented one to Lizzie and Tony Meeks, by appearances a nice, young married couple. However, when he visits the house, the windows are broken, the yard is full of bikes and bikers, and there’s a telling smell of rotten eggs in the air. In order to evict them from his house, Snake needs Slim and Jeep’s help. All they need to do is deliver a letter of intent and a copy of the original lease to a group of heavily armed, meth running bikers. Should be easy, right?

This Slim in Little Egypt short story bridges the gap between Down Don’t Bother Me and Red Dog, and also includes an excerpt from Red Dog.


Jason Miller is the author of the Slim In Little Egypt Series.



REVIEW:
I picked this up not realizing it is an in-between novella. I decided to give it a go anyways.
I'm glad I did.
I might not know backstories, but the characters were cool enough that I want to read the whole series now.
I need to know if Snake gets his 'just desserts'.
Yup, a quick little read that packed a punch. Literally.


3.5/5

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
