Frame Story, a brand-new book by Domenic Migliore, has actually been launched by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Domenic Migliore has no interest in making you feel much better. Entering his world includes threats. Then once again, so does living in ours. His writing is a broken rock bouncing down a grungy hill: the speed of the descent causes blur; the build-up of nasty particles is inevitable. In one tale, a dad informs his kid, “You do not go fudging around with the factory presets.” In Migliore’s storyworlds, the presets are as undependable as experimentation with them is. Things fall apart. You’re most likely to make fun of some stories, flinch at others, and avoid some passages that are too unpleasant to envision. You’re not likely to forget the experience of conference artist and filmmaker Migliore’s cast of tired, unfortunate souls. They should remain in motion pictures. And most likely will. – Bill Obesrt Jr. (from Rob Zombie’s 3 FROM HELL, television’s THE ROOKIE: FEDS and Criminal Minds)

… a remarkable batch of moving tales. Migliore’s narrative collection dispense fear, violence, and gallows humor in equivalent procedure … The author’s tales browse through such bleak areas as murder, nuclear strikes, and other various criminal activities. It’s barely unexpected that violence marks a number of the stories, from bites and stabbings to carefully in-depth head shots. Migliore deftly leavens the heaviness with satire … The author shows a propensity for direct, succinct sentences that stir the narrative speed.

While well-drawn characters appear throughout this collection, the cast is mostly aloof or despiteful. They gush homophobic, xenophobic, and normally offending slurs and beliefs that match the savage acts they commit. Readers will not have compassion with the majority of them, especially the nasty American soldier stationed in Japan who appears to dislike whatever and everybody (The Tattoo). Stories such as these aren’t susceptible to pleased endings, however that does not make the book foreseeable.” – Kirkus Reviews
