New Inigo Hicks Short Story!!

Lot and His Daughters, Jan Brueghel the Elder (17th Century)

“Writers who see by the light of their Christian faith will have, in these times, the sharpest eye for the grotesque, for the perverse, and for the unacceptable…. To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost-blind you draw large and startling figures.”

Readers will note the great extent to which Flannery O’Connor’s dictum has inspired Inigo Hicks’ new short story,”The Suburbs of Gomorrha”, in that the story not only contains much that is grotesque, perverse and unacceptable, but also a lot of shouting, as well as several large, and sometimes startling figures. 

Which doesn't mean it isn't funny.  Malcolm Muggeridge suggested that the fall of man was just the old bananaskin joke on a cosmic scale.  The humor in "The Suburbs of Gomorrha" belongs to the bananaskin genre.

“The Suburbs of Gomorrha” is affordably priced at just 99 cents (cheap) on Amazon Kindle. Where else can you get so much perversity (seen by the light of Christian faith), not to mention laughs, for less than a dollar?
