Synopsis: The sixteen short stories by Vic Amato and anthologized in "Incoming" deftly explores the nature of humanity through tales that are extraordinary, inspiring and even ridiculous. In "Death by Peanut Butter," you'll meet Twain, a mentally challenged man with a large stock of fluffy white hair who stuffs his mouth and makes a break for it. Tourist Dan in "Manhattan Mendicant" encounters a downtown panhandler and resents him for being able to live in Nyc. But when Dan sees the World Trade Center fall on Tv, he can think only of the beggar. "Camille", a fun-loving artist, holds back information and her true feelings. On a hot night, it all comes down on her boyfriend out on the front porch.

Critique: A master of the short story format, author Vic Amato defly creates truly memorable characters within his original and highly entertaining stories. "Incoming: Collected Stories" is very highly recommended for both community and academic library Literary Fiction collections. For personal reading lists it should be noted that "Incoming: Collected Stories" is also available in a Kindle edition ($3.99).
