If you enjoyed my short story, YOUNG BROWN MAN AND THE LAUNDROMAT WEREWOLF from The Kelsey Review, you might like the following stories and music that inspired it:

  1. Haruki Murakami’s THE STRANGE LIBRARY is a short novelette about a boy who goes to a library, gets captured, and has to escape. A rat man, a shadowy girl, and a psychotic librarian are all involved. You can buy it here: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-strange-library-haruki-murakami/1120262519 or borrow it at your library.

Here’s one of Murakami’s short stories from The New Yorker that you can read for free right now: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2011/09/05/town-of-cats

A short story available at Fireside Fiction. It’s about a child who gets lost at a mall. When she asks for help, the first person she meets asks if her parents exploded.

  1. Neil Gaiman’s HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES:
