THE DUMPING GAME by Stephen Donald Huff


I recently had a chat¬†with¬†Stephen Donald Huff¬†in the comments of a review I posted for another one of his short stories, (check out¬†SHIT on it’s Amazon page. and read my review HERE).

Stephen recommended a few titles that he thought I might enjoy based on my review¬†of SHIT¬† – he suggested¬†Perverse¬†(“a semi-biographical sketch”), Mr. Accident, Horrid Torrid, and, this book especially – The Dumping Game. I’m really happy that we finally connected, and that he told me about¬†some of his favorites because picking my next read gets difficult when there are¬†so many new (to me) titles¬†to choose from.¬†

Because¬†he stated that¬†The Dumping Game¬†¬†is¬†“a personal favorite and also semi-biographical”, ¬†it’s the one that I chose to download first. Now… the actual Dumping Game is on my “Things To Do Before I Die” bucket list >.<

What is The Dumping Game?

As its name implies, it begins with garbage and ends with garbage, but its ultimate goal is the destruction of human lives and the dismantlement of otherwise happy families.

We get to follow along as the game¬†progresses from ‘a harmless prank to a journey into madness‘. ¬†Whenever I found myself starting to¬†empathize with the ‘prankee’, my inner demon poked her little head¬†out and laughed manically while making a mental list of potential victims! ¬†3:)

Now I need to find out which parts of this story are ‘semi-biographical’! Care to chime in on this, Steve? We want details!
