    Lloyd Bizbang The name almost has a clownish quality to it, right But there is nothing funny about the day that Lloyd has ahead of him Death has always had a way of insinuating itself into his life He comes under the heading of unfinished business for some of the town folk, not the least of which is a police chief who is battling his own demons A fairly brutal read The final chapter was killer Chilling.

    Everything is dying or dead in the small town of Horton.including its citizens. Dark, bloody violence is the name of the game in C AND C with drugs and alcohol aplenty. CANDY AND CIGARETTES are for grandpa.a life of misery for Floyd Bizbang.and then there s the end.

    A while back I read a great book by CS DeWildt Love You to a Pulp and I loved it so much I thought I would try out one of his earlier novels and I am really glad I made that decision Candy and Cigarettes is as good as its successor is and I loved everything about it.This offering from DeWildt is a short novella but it packs a punch equal to some longer works of other authors It centers on Lloyd Bizbang, who has been tormented throughout his life because he was present at his younger sister s A while back I read a great book by CS DeWildt Love You to a Pulp and I loved it so much I thought I would try out one of his earlier novels and I am really glad I made that decision Candy and Cigarettes is as good as its successor is and I loved everything about it.This offering from DeWildt is a short novella but it packs a punch equal to some longer works of other authors It centers on Lloyd Bizbang, who has been tormented throughout his life because he was present at his younger sister s death and inadvertently contributed to it and also had a hand in his grandmother s death When death follows a young child this closely, a stigma is sure to develop and Llyod has done little in lfe to rid himself of the dark cloud that follows him around.His main rivals are Terry and Zeke Cutter who are burning a path of criminal destruction through the town and making things appear that Llyod has a hand in the crimes These two are angry, vengeful brothers who set out to make Llyod s life a living hell and have succeeded at every turn Their crimes are becomingviolent and they set themselves onto a path of sure destruction.The novella also features the Chief of Police who is has found out he is terminally ill and that news has set him on a self destructive path and he seems set on taking Llyod down with him His mental instability made the chapters featuring him a blast to read and he adds a good deal of depth to the story.The book has a lightening paced plot and the characters all have life to them If I had to pick out the one thing I didn t like about the book, I would say it was too short The writing chops that DeWildt has were on full display here and I am glad I devoured this book If you haven t sampled this author yet, you need to rectify that immediately.Highly recommended

    C.S DeWildt has a bead on small details and setting I had the pleasure of reading DeWildt s gritty short story, Watch Dog Crew on Shotgun Honey last November and was impressed with his quick development of character and wonderful in the darkest sense use of language When I saw DeWildt had new novella out, I had to pick it up.As you can expect from the cover and the blurb, Candy and Cigarettes is a very dark tale You ll get a good idea of what to expect when not if you head over to Sh C.S DeWildt has a bead on small details and setting I had the pleasure of reading DeWildt s gritty short story, Watch Dog Crew on Shotgun Honey last November and was impressed with his quick development of character and wonderful in the darkest sense use of language When I saw DeWildt had new novella out, I had to pick it up.As you can expect from the cover and the blurb, Candy and Cigarettes is a very dark tale You ll get a good idea of what to expect when not if you head over to Shotgun Honey for a 700 word appetizer.The story centers on Lloyd Bizbang, who, through a series of terrible and unfortunate events, has found himself an outcast in a small town where the inhabitants seem to do everything in their power to keep from moving on with the outside world The characters in the novel range from ugly to nasty but grounded and not over the top in any sense It is difficult to root for any of them This may drag in a full length novel, but here it works well, keeping the reader tense and questioning whether or not to sympathize with such depressing situations.DeWildt s decision to use a close third person from multiple POVs some chapters only a page or two long worked well to ramp up the tension and give additional insight to the inhabitants of Horton I m not always a fan of using many POVs, but each is distinct and DeWildt does a great job of establishing a lot of character within a little space.Candy and Cigarettes won t leave you feeling good, but that s the way it should be It s a depressing look at a town plagued with bullies on the brink of disaster and I mean that in the best sense I look forward to DeWildt s next book This one is definitely worth checking out

    If I owned a bookstore, I d put it in the weird rural noir section I don t know if there would be any other books with it This isa serious of perfectly sketched vignettes rather than a novella that orbit around the jagged story of Lloyd Bizbang Dude can t seem to ever catch a break and has become the target of a couple of moronic psychos But there are so many delightful tangents about life in this swirling the drain town The one that sticks out to me most is about two drug addled If I owned a bookstore, I d put it in the weird rural noir section I don t know if there would be any other books with it This isa serious of perfectly sketched vignettes rather than a novella that orbit around the jagged story of Lloyd Bizbang Dude can t seem to ever catch a break and has become the target of a couple of moronic psychos But there are so many delightful tangents about life in this swirling the drain town The one that sticks out to me most is about two drug addled teenagers and one unfortunate convenience store clerk Really sharp writing, vivid characters, and that noir sense of decay and guaranteed awfulness Highly recommended

    There is no parallel for the distinctively skewed work of C.S Dewildt Nobody comes at stories from the same angle as this guy The only point of comparison I have is the 1980s movie Repo Man , which also came out of left field and shares a degree of the same odd humor.If you read this and Dewildt s collection of stories, Dead Animals , you will see some common themes Perhaps the most central is thisDewildt is fascinated by what society the world casts off people, possessions, matter bot There is no parallel for the distinctively skewed work of C.S Dewildt Nobody comes at stories from the same angle as this guy The only point of comparison I have is the 1980s movie Repo Man , which also came out of left field and shares a degree of the same odd humor.If you read this and Dewildt s collection of stories, Dead Animals , you will see some common themes Perhaps the most central is thisDewildt is fascinated by what society the world casts off people, possessions, matter both organic and inorganic The living and dead are uncomfortably close together

    Gritty and brutal crime novella with an impressive collection of psychopaths including a terminally ill small town Chief of Police who doesdamage than all the criminals combined Great use of multiple POVs, all in close third, and all distinct Nary an uplifting word, so be prepared for the death march.
