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.

    "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.

    "Inspiring"

    This solidified Clines as my absolute new favorite author. It's the type of work(s) that makes me wish I would've majored in English and seriously gave writing a chance as a career. Truly inspiring. Loved every bit of this and can't wait for more from him.

    "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.

    Story
    "Clines and Porter are a perfect match"
    Where does Dead Men Can't Complain and Other Stories rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Peter Clines is always entertaining and Ray Porter seems to understand Clines' humor. This collection made a boring trip up California I-5 a joy. Thanks, guys.


    What other book might you compare Dead Men Can't Complain and Other Stories to and why?

    Any of Clines' books are worth reading. His imagination is endless.


    What about Ralph Lister and Ray Porter ’s performance did you like?

    Everything I have listened to by Porter captures me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Of course it made me laugh. That is what is so great about the pair.


    Any additional comments?

    More, please.

    "Great collection."

    I have read a few of Mr. Clines books prior this and this is up with the best. This is a great collection of stories with great performances by the narrators. Hint: He even manages to work in references to some of his prior work.

    "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.
