Here are Roy V. Spikesa€™ studies of several variations of historically-recognized pathologies. Twisted Minds is composed of three stylistically original and technically egregious short stories, there are three protagonists which have become stock characters in American literature who are mired in situational kerfuffles. Further, these situations are a much-loved commonplace, classic pieces of Americana. The stories are a€œWitches Brew, a€ about a sixteenth-century witch who seduces men into her home and then turns them into pigs; a€œPrison Break, a€ a story of a young boy in the late 1930a€™s who gets sent to juvenile detention for robbery; and a€œThe Dark of Night, a€ about Jessie, one of those cool, wild biker boys who gets into an accident after which he does not know whether he is alive or dead. The triptych of stories are unrelated but are twined together to dramatize young adult pathologies. The characterizations and plots are utterly realized with an incisive but non-intrusive modernism. Spikesa€™ voice has the quality of speaking directly into the modern debate without being out of place, without being too common, slyly hooking in the reader into a state of suspended disbelief which the reader will find familiar, lived-in and sensible. This is a groundbreaking work and Roy V. Spikes is a name to watch in American literaturea€™s futurescape.Jack then pulls outagun and then says, a€œI need youall to get on the ground and put your hands straight out in front of you. ... desk personand finds out that the phonelines have been down for a few days, and anyday now, phone service shouldanbsp;...
