Old School, the first compilation of short fiction by writer Dan O’Shea, is filled to the brim with pieces that are as hard hitting and visceral as they come. As I read through the book I was so immersed in the stories, so involved with the characters, that a few times the events on the page actually prompted a physical reaction. My brain has been awash in violence and suspense for most of my life, thanks to movies and video games, and I thought I was inured to it all. Turns out I’m not. O’Shea manages to hone his fiction into a point sharp enough to break through the wall of desensitization and make the reader squirm.
