Here is a list of my Top 9 Fictions available on the Internets according to no one but yours truly. My stories, my genius, my ego. This, of course, will not include any stories available only in print, including the amazing "Grandpa & Me" published in the wonderful Goldust's Solid Gold Anthology, or the biting "Bullies," published by the U.K. journal Monkey Kettle, or the trio of gems "Dicks, Nipples and Sylvia Plath, in Monkeybicycle's Dirty Humor Issue.
Indeed, these are all great stories. Some of the world's greatest writers have this to say:
"Frissore is the funniest unknown fiction writer of his generation." - Mark Twain
"If you're not reading Frissore, you're an asshole." - S.J. Perelman
"Reading Frissore's fiction is like ejaculating into Dorothy Parker." - Donald Barthelme
"Frissore is more hilariouser than even me. And for fuck's sake, I'm not the wrestler." - Bret Harte
So let's get this list moving
9. Calista Flockhart and the MySpace Hoax
A two-part story based, in some part, on truth. I used to have a lot of fun with MySpace.
8. The Banana
Spilt Milk Magazine
What can I say about this story that anyone wants to hear?
7. Mister Bink Habit
My son Alex gave me this idea, albeit inadvertently. A “Story of the Month” winner for November 2010. So you know it’s worth reading
6. The Adventures of Root Beer Float Man
New for Summer 2011! Parts of this were first written more than ten years ago. I am officially a superhero.
5. The Lookist
Berg Gasse 19
This story was nearly selected by at least one major print journal, but screw ‘em. I wrote it with Freud in mind anyway.
4. The Seven Stages of Sorrow
Jersey Devil Press
Originally titled “The Story of Jay,” then “The Girl in the Ultimate Warrior Jacket,” then “The Ballad of Jay and Colleen,” then…something else, and finally in seven parts as it is here. It was also originally twice as long.
3. The Gingerbread Gang
An online fiction chapbook containing six delicious stories, all formerly published in journals that have since shit the bed.
2. Q.Q.’s Barbershop
Sein Und Werden
A wonderful story that could only be published here. The W.C. Fields-inspired Q.Q. endures many, many problems as a barber living inside a whiskey bottle.
And my personal favorite, the story of lil’ Heckle. I’m gonna turn pro wrestler and say this is the greatest short story ever written, perhaps next to Woody Allen’s “Kugelmass Episode.”
