Friday Night Knife & Gun Club

A short satire by Linda Collison

On the night shift a lot of bad shit goes down. This short story takes place in the near-future in the Land of the Free where no gun control exists and everyone packs semi-automatics to deal out justice as they see fit. Tonight Kit Carson, RN, has the worst shift ever. Read ’em and weep.

“Linda Collison’s Friday Night Knife and Gun Club is a wry commentary on the casual violence that seems so often to occupy the news. Her depiction of hospital night work is in the tradition of Paddy Chayefsky’s absurdist and scalding screenplay for the film The Hospital. Gun-toting nurses and doctors do their best to make it through a wild, snowy night shift in an under-staffed hospital in the American heartland. This is a well-written, funny book filled with sharply observed detail that entertains even as it touches deeper issues of disconnection and alienation in modern society. Highly recommended!”
— Tim Queeney, author of The Atlas Fracture

“Well this is a feisty little number; a pistol packing nurse’s night duty is dramatically interrupted when an intruder is detected. Great atmosphere and a good deal of technical background make it a spellbinding read, although not for those of a sensitive nature. The cover art, which is worth the purchase price alone, sums up the mood of the story perfectly. Recommended.”
–Alaric Bond, author of Turn a Blind Eye.

“Collision creates a reality that stands on the three pillars of the contemporary present, a venerated past, and a dystopian future.” 
–Gregory Block

“The reader is transported from the routine of a modern hospital to a parallel world of intrigue, skulduggery and mayhem that appears quite normal to everyone around.”
— M. Muir

Sunday Night Knife & Gun Club

A short satire by Linda Collison

You are hereby requested to appear at the Watering Hole Saloon, Sunday night at 9:00 pm.
Come alone and come armed.
~ High Plains Vigilantes for American Justice

My stomach did a flip- flop, my fingertips tingled. Carefully I put the slip of paper back in the envelope and stuffed it inside my Kevlar vest. There must be some mistake. Not to mention, the Watering Hole was such a dive. Only the drovers and the dregs drank there.

What readers are saying about Nurse Kit Carson’s Knife & Gun Club:

“This is a great short story and a fun read… right up until the s*** hits the fan. This is not a book to read by yourself on a stormy night while you are waiting in a hospital emergency room!
Sharp, deadpan writing with a slightly hallucinatory feel”
Don Mos — author

“A well-written, funny book filled with sharply observed detail that entertains even as it touches deeper issues of disconnection and alienation in modern society.” Tim Queeney –author

Blue Luck Moon

A Novel by Linda Collison

For his entire life, twenty-two-year-old Chance Lee has been dreaming of greatness — something far beyond getting high in his mother’s old farmhouse, and much more prestigious than playing in a twangy West Virginia country band on the weekends. Unlike many other small-town boys with lofty dreams, Chance see his future of musical greatness, with his best friend Tollie by his side, as an undeniable fact. And when a reading from a local fortune-teller seems to affirm his unstoppable luck, it’s not long before he’s ready to break out of Falling Waters and put his plans in motion. But when creative differences and the undeniable pull of home begin to get in the way, Chance is finally given reason to doubt his lucky star — at least, until he finally hits the road alongside an unexpected companion.
