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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Love Clines' Writing & Porter's Narration"

    So, what is not to like about the writing of Peter Clines paired with Ray Porter's voice?!?!? This was an excellent compilation of short stories that were well narrated by both narrators. I particularly enjoyed the first short story (the title escapes me) and the title story. The stories were of varying lengths and all of them kept my interest. The only complaint I have is that some of them ended too abruptly; but perhaps that is just a sign that they were so good that I wanted more! The abrupt endings of some of the stories was what kept this from being a 5 star rating.

    "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...

    "Wonderful collection"

    I really enjoyed this collection. For one, between series I need short palette cleaners -- and this one was perfect for the job. It's about a dozen 30 minute self-contained short stories. Second and more important, each story was really well written. This doesn't feel like leftover rushed story scraps. Each story had its own flavor and was top notch. Lastly, both narrators were good but Ray Porter is quickly making a fan-boy of me and was as good as ever. I almost didn't get this collection but I'm so, so glad I did.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "Entertaining"

    The short stories were all together creepy, entertaining, weird, scary and just what I wanted on cold days while I wrapped presents. My only complaint is the switch to a different narrator about a third of the way through. Re-record that story and it will be a perfect collection.
