Title: Filmic Cuts Volume IV: Title Pending
Author: Oli Jacobs
Page Count/Review Word Count: 180
As you’ll probably already be aware if you’ve seen some of my previous Oli Jacobs reviews, his Filmic Cuts books are basically short story collections, although it’s also true that there are occasionally poems interspersed as well, usually of the humorous variety.
Humour is the key feature that underlies the majority of Oli’s stuff, even when he’s getting dark and playing around with horror. You know what you’re getting when you read one of his books, which is why I keep on picking them up. I wouldn’t say that this one was his best, but neither was it his worst, and as with all short story collections there were some I enjoyed more than others.
Weirdly, I’ve read a few different Jacobs stories with zombies in them by now, and even though each of them takes the idea in different directions, they’ve all been pretty good. I hope he writes more.
