Reviews - What do customers think about 3000 Miles Per Hour in Every Direction at Once: Essays and Stories?

Funny stuff  Jul 25, 2004
Nick's writing is as pointed and dangerous as a syringe on a seashore. Whether writing horror, essays, or humor, this guy knows how to pick his nouns and verbs for maximum impact. The only criticism of the book is one the back cover mentions--the book shifts gears between horror and humor and urbanscape essays in a mishmash presentation that reduces the impact if you read the book sequentially. The scariest story in the book, "Scarlett Women Watch TV Till Dawn" is backed up against the funniest story, "Travel Between Heavenly Bodies." Reading this thing is like being in the mind of a manic-depressive--or perhaps the mind of Nick Mamatas! Avoid the temptation to sit down and read everything at once--limit yourself to one story or essay a day to allow your brain to reset--and there's not one work in this collection that will fail to impress you.
Poorly written  Apr 14, 2004
There were some interesting ideas here, but the stories were written in a very inaccessible manner. The writer seems to be trying too hard to be "hip" and "cool" and at the end of the day, that's just boring. I only read about half of this book before closing it up and shoving it in a corner.
Buffet of Good Lit Eats  Sep 12, 2003
Nick Mamatas is brilliant. But don't let that prevent you from buying _3000 MPH_. This is a virtual buffet of good literary brain food that manages to remain accessible without weighing you down like a heavy starch diet. He does mainly fantasy/SF/horror stuff, but you don't need to be heavily into the genres to enjoy this.

The stories are entertaining, and the best ones captivating, while making you think about something in a way that you had not considered before. They remain brain-bound long after you've put them down.

Trope's intro is funny, too.

Outstanding Collection  Aug 1, 2003
Mamatas is an exceptional fantasist. His stories reminded me of Alfred Bester, Philip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, and William Browning Spencer. "Joey Ramone Saves the World" is alone worth the cover price. Well written, thought provoking work from a talent to watch.
