Publisher's Summary

A cop interrogates a perp in a lizard costume that seems all too real.

An all-powerful superhero protects his city - and they better like it.

An average Joe finds out that being undead isn't all that it's cracked up to be.

Including three never-before-published stories, Dead Men Can't Complain is the first-ever collection of short fiction by Peter Clines, author of 14, The Fold, and other Audible smash hits. Combining equal parts geekery and humor with the occasional dash of horror, Dead Men Can't Complain is ideal for Clines fans eagerly awaiting his next novel - or for brand-new listeners discovering this Audible favorite for the first time.

    Blind listener reading everything, especially mystery/thrillers and sf&f. Restricted to audio so picky where credits spent. #BooksRule

    "Readers Shan't Complain Either"

    Wonderful collection... Weirdly eclectic and amusing.... You've got your aliens, zombies, superheroes, artificial beings, werewolves, lawmen, mad scientists, etc... I liked all the stories, which can be unusual for some collections, and loved most... If you like the author's other works you'll definitely enjoy... If you haven't read him this would be a nice introduction... There's a nice post "Ex" story in here, and many w/ wonderful twists and reveals... The performance is fantastic...

    "It was over too soon"

    I enjoyed myself when I stumbled upon 14 a few years back. I couldn't put it down. The same goes for The Fold and now this new set of stories. If you are into anything that makes you think then this is for you. Definitely worth the credit.

    Story
    "Buy this if you have read any of Mr.Clines books or if you want a taste of a great author"

    I love the fact each story is completely different.
    You find some shared universes. but the perspective and originality of each story has me very impressed.

    I believe the short story is the hardest form of writing, and when done correctly is the most rewarding.

    A must read for all fans and a goof example if you do not know his work.

    Thank you for an enjoyable afternoon.

    "Peter Clines Is a Spinner of Wonder"

    Don't let the short run time make you think it's not worth a credit.

    There's half a dozen stories here with plots worthy of full novels. Clines manages to convey them concisely & colourfully.

    Top Marks.

    "Worth It"

    I really liked these. Every story was interesting. If you've read his works before you'll notice some nice tie ins. But it's not necessary to enjoy the stories. If he writes another short story book I'll buy it.

    "Best short story collection"

    I love how all these shorts are a version of other books and the cliff hanger endings have me want to buy every single one. Well done. Well done. Never fail to amaze me

    "Left me wanting more"

    Gotta love the Peter Clines/Ray Porter combination, it just sounds right. Dig Clines style, but man, I kept wanting to hear more about these characters and their stories. Some of these are very strong and would work well as a full length others are simply that short story material, nothing wrong with that either. Looking forward to more Clines and more Ray Porter!

    "This guy!!"

    I love Clines. And it should go without saying but Ray Porter is the man. I just wish it would have been longer. So good

    "Great Fun!!!"

    Clines and Porter!

    Audiobook/Audible perfection!

    Only gripe is they are short but Clines doesn't waste words or ideas. Each could have been longer to the point of detriment of the story but Clines illustrates his mastery in tossing out a collection of wonderful stories that are all super fun

    "Great book"

    Another fantastic book by Peter Clines, well worth the purchase and the collection of stories in this are all good, I especially love flesh trade which I would love to see expanded into a full novel. I recommend this to any fan of Peter or even if you love this type of fantasy/ horror/ humour

    "An interesting collection"

    A small little audiobook,less than 5 hours, that has Clines style throughout.

    There's a little bit for everyone in here, time travel, zombies, robots, love story,horror.

    When listening to short story books, I always imagine if it was a full book would it be any good, and in this there are at least 3 that I'd be intrigued to listen to an extended version.
