Mix Tape: The Collected works, 2007-2009

"Kirby's Mix Tape is aptly named, for not every story in here will please everyone but every one is written brilliantly. Kirby has a great talent for writing well across genre boundaries and therefore has something special to offer readers with wide and varying tastes." Alex Thornber, The Short Review, May 2010.

And like all good mix-tapes, they chart the mood of the party, from the excitable, laughable and crazy-ass to bitter-sweet and then maudlin, and finally chilled out...

There's something here for everyone, from straight literary fiction to horror and from fantasy to bizarre. There's love, hate, torture, murder within these pages, and much, much more.

These pieces have been published on-line, in periodicals, journals and magazines, but this is the first time they have appeared in one volume.
