Danny Mullen followed my personal twitter the other day out of the blue, and I was curious, so I checked him out. A young writer hailing from California, Mullen has released personal essays and a book (probably closer to a long essay) for free on his website. I was interested, as his twitter is full of wonderfully twisted little bits of humor. I downloaded his book as a pdf for free and breezed through it. At 26 short pages, again, it's not a fully developed novel, and Mullen has some growing to do as a writer, but it's an intriguing debut, and Mullen is someone you should have your eye on in 2016. Mullen periodically releases essays, (Territorial Pissings, When Your Girlfriend Bangs A Black Dude, and He's Not My Buddy, He's My Boyfriend) so follow his twitter for updates, as well as fun little tidbits like:
Mullen's book is good, it's fun, but occasionally he tends to overwrite and seems to try to use more complicated phrasing than necessary just for the sake of using 'better' words. Personally, I believe Mullen will continue to grow and come into his own as a writer, learn to trust his instincts and go with the flow a little more.
Regardless of the technical side, Mullen's work is worth your time.
