The Ginza Ghost

Super short review here:

The Ginza Ghost by Osaka Keikichi is a collection of short mysteries, most of which are “locked room” mysteries. Several also try to make the reader wonder: could the crimes have been committed by something supernatural?

I used to not really like books of short stories, but over the last couple of years, I’ve come to really enjoy these collections. Plus, I love Japanese literature, and I love mysteries, so this was a great pick for me.

Also, can we just pretend I didn’t take such horrible picture of my e-reader?

How I Broke Up with My Colon

How I Broke Up with my Colon: Fascinating, Bizarre, and True Health Stories by Nick Seluk is a comic book that explores true health stories through humor and colorful illustrations. Characters from The Awkward Yeti and it’s spin-off Heart and Brain are present throughout, which makes this recommended read for fans of those characters.

There are a couple jokes that made me slightly uncomfortable. I can’t remember exactly what they were, but I know one had to do with mental health. I hate it when people do that.

The only other problems I had were editing problems: seemingly blank text boxes, missing text boxes, and possibly a missing illustration. They didn’t disturb the continuity of the stories much, but I hope it gets fixed my publication time.

This book will be published in March. If you’re a fan of Seluk, you’ll more than likely enjoy it.
