Stephen K. and Steve K. Should Unite

So, I've read everything Stephen Kozeniewski has written that I've been able to get my hands on.  I'm still waiting on the new anthology but I have faith it'll be in my hands soon.  Everything that I've read, well I've absolutely adored it.  He has a fresh perspective to his writing style and a way of taking plot to a different place than it's previously been.  In short, I love his stuff.

Thanks to a surprise email earlier today, I've started reading Steve Kuhn's Dext of the Dead series, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed so far.  Starting out, I kept thinking 'OK This has been done...where's the something new?'  Don't worry your pretty little heads...I'll be reviewing each book on here shortly.  But the something new is Kuhn's writing style.  I can't keep from smiling while reading.  Seriously, it's like that snarky best guy friend telling you about stuff that's happened...after he's downed a few shots of vodka.  OK My friends don't usually drink vodka, but you get the point.  It's random and funny as hell so far.

So here's my thinking:  These guys need to get together.  I'm loving them separately, but together they could seriously produce the most amazing masterpiece!  Take one of Stephen's plots, Toss in Steve's input.  Then let the guys each pick one character and tell the story from that point of view.  Every other chapter could be a different perspective written by a different S.K.  I'm so loving this idea!  I'd read it and would heavily promote it.

In short, you guys need to listen to me and hook up and produce something...even if it's just for my entertainment.  Then again, this could end up to be about as good as my idea for fish on a stick, covered in hush puppy batter and deep fried.  We still don't know if it's any good because nobody will try it.

Just sayin'.

  1. Unfortunately we'll need to settle an important question first: which of us is Steve #1 and which of us is Steve #2?

  2. The more important question is which one of you wants to be 'Chocolate Thunda' ;)
