Literary Wanderlust, a Denver, Colorado, based publisher of print and digital books, has announced that a new short story collection by David S. Atkinson will be published in early 2016.

In a statement, the publisher said, “Not Quite So Stories”, the upcoming book, showcases the idea that life is absurd, ultimately beyond comprehension.

In each story, people try to understand and explain the world. They may be able to come to terms with small pieces, but existence as a whole is beyond their grasp. Life isn’t explainable, and the best people can do is continue on with their lives in the face of that fact. The stories in this collection proceed from this idea, examining how different characters manage – and/or fail – to do this, a statement from the publisher said.

“With Not Quite So Stories”, there’s no need to suspend disbelief. David S. Atkinson makes the absurd 100% believable. These stories are hilarious and real. Atkinson is on his way to becoming the master of absurdity”, said Nathaniel Tower, author of “Nagging Wives, Foolish Husbands”.

David S. Atkinson is the author of Not Quite So Stories, Bones Buried in the Dirt (2014 Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist) and The Garden of Good and Evil Pancakes (2015 National Indie Excellence Awards finalist in humor).

His writing has appeared in Bartleby Snopes, Grey Sparrow Journal, Atticus Review and other literary magazines and journals. Learn more about David and his writing at
