“Nicolas Wilson is
an alchemist of short stories, turning the lead of a base idea into
something much more precious - a vision... He possesses a dry wit
that one finds in an accomplished satirist, and many of his stories
dip into samplings of high hyperbolae that only men such as Vonnegut
tap into to exploit the absurd and surreal.”
L. Ivey, Amazon review of Selected Short Stories Featuring
a world of endless Kindle authors Nic Wilson is a true gem, an
original and professional writer who is well worth your money.”
Diack, Amazon review of Selected Short Stories Featuring
“The diversity of
his stories is quite stunning, but not as stunning as how
effortlessly he handles each genre.”
