Circles and Wheels Book Cover

Anders Flagstad’s new collection of short stories Circles and Wheels available on Amazon and Smashwords defies description – but we’ll try anyways. We’ll do it for your sake. And we’ll do it just because we’re generally polite that way and we’d really like to introduce you to Anders Flagstad’s new book.

In another one of those cities on the edge of the continent (SF, LA, and SD being the big three – this time we’re talking about SD – San Diego), although the weather may be monotonously predictable, life often is not. Sometimes that’s a good thing, sometimes not such a good thing. Anders Flagstad’s new book is a book of short stories about an innocent apartment complex in downtown-ish San Diego, and the innocent and less-than-innocent people living there.

Everybody has a story. Everybody has a life. So do buildings. We think we see buildings, we think we see people and we think we know them. But we don’t. Not really. We see what we want to see. What actually goes on inside – kidnapping, murder, love, death, betrayal, unwashed dishes, parties crashed by homeless men, drag queens leaving their apartments without a sun hat, it would shock and amaze you. Or at least some of you. At least the group that doesn’t live on the edge of the continent. At a minimum, it’s always interesting to watch these edge-of-continent people though, through Flagstad’s eyes, however briefly, and see what goes on in the neighbors’ apartments, late at night, or at high noon, in back of closed and locked doors or hidden behind carefully pulled and fully-extended window shades, especially when said neighbors don’t know they’re being watched.

To get your fill of watching – get and read Anders Flagstad’s Circles and Wheels at Amazon and Smashwords

Bubble Eyes Publishes Anders Flagstad’s New Story Collection “Spare Parts”

2014_02_02

Spare Parts Book Cover

Anders Flagstad’s new collection of short stories and novellas Spare Parts available on Amazon and Smashwords – is a lot of haphazard answers in search of some accommodating questions.

In a city on the edge of the continent – in a place where the real and the surreal melt in a foggy fondue and everything is possible – on streets where homeless people get heckled by defunct Roman Emperors, where lovers tell their futures by deciphering tattoos and Death is just one of many tenants barely making a living out of transient hotels, in such a city, what would it take surprise someone?

Spare Parts is book one in the series Principal Parts – a set of interconnected books and characters about San Franciscans and how they got that way and what they do to stay that way and where they expect to go with all this stuff they’re doing.
