Gruba Fiction
4 Short Stories by David Gruba
Cover art by Kurt Mitchell

The ’Zine Scene – For decades now, a few critics have bemoaned the State of Literature – and I do mean Literature with a capital “L” – while simultaneously predicting the demise of the printed book. This, of course, is a double-barrelled death wish, often delivered in strangely gleeful tones considering it’s the critics’ very own pronouncements that constitute murder by a thousand cuts while hoards of readers do their best to continue buying old-fashioned books every day. At the same time, old-fashioned writers are doing their best to see their words and stories in old-fashioned published form. Gruba Fiction is an excellent example of the reader and the writer’s shared, age-old need to hear-and-tell stories – taut, pulpy stories that keep you turning from page-to-page until the very end despite the weary cries of tiresome critics.
