"His dick was so big he was giving me gut shots with every stroke, I almost threw up". #gut #shot #big dick #gut-shot. by DakotaMatt July 16, Get a Gut shot mug for your Uncle Günter. Also known as an inside straight, a gutshot or gutshot straight draw is a hand that has four non-consecutive cards to a straight. For example, if you hold 9♠ 8♠ and the flop comes J♣ Q ♥ 4 ♦, you have a gutshot straight draw — a ten and a ten only would give you a straight. 3/3/ · Gutshot. A bullet in the gut. I've seen enough old Westerns to know that in earlier eras a gutshot was the harbinger of a grim, day demise caked in blood and shit, a nugget of lead having tumbled through one's viscera, ripping, tearing, perforating but missing the organs that offer a /5.
These are unsafe stories, at times so absurdly violent that I'm never sure if I should laugh. But they do make me laugh. Here is a passage from the middle of my favorite story in the collection, "Labyrinth:" --Knowing what he put into it, I thought it was a shame to stand by and I'm exhilarated by Amelia Gray's writing.
Here is a passage from the middle of my favorite story in the collection, "Labyrinth:" --Knowing what he put into it, I thought it was a shame to stand by and see everyone go.
The sun was still low in the sky and it was lonely at home, where the TV had been broken for a week and the tap water had begun to taste oddly of blood.
Clearly a decision has been made by the narrator. Clearly something is about to happen because of that decision. But what, exactly, is going on?
What is this about water tasting like blood? Why is it lonely at home? Why is the TV broken? What does it all mean? You never really know.
If you were to read from the beginning of the story you would still not know. You arrive at this passage in the middle of a story, and what has come before has already left you, sentence by sentence, with more questions than answers, and even so you feel completely in thrall of the storytelling, of where it will lead.
In each of her stories, Gray drives forward relentlessly to a satisfying conclusion, but along the way she keeps adding tantalizing, striking, unexplained details, until every word feels significant to the whole, and also, every word no longer seems to mean exactly what you though it meant before you began reading the story.
The effect is quite unlike any other writer I've read. Nov 16, Amy rated it it was ok Recommends it for: experimentalists, new adventure seekers. Shelves: modern-fiction , novel-reads , short-stories , alt-tob.
Reading this felt like sitting at the foot of an insane person expecting some moment of epiphany from their connection to the other only to realize they are just stuck in a broken and off-kilter loop that is otherwise unremarkable.
My favorite type of short stories sketch out something instantly recognizable in a very few sentences. With a simple exchange of dialogue one instantly ascertains the current state of a relationship and can guess at some of the history or with a twist of visual observation a reader intuits the state of mind of a protagonist.
And sometimes a sentence is just plain stupid as with this opening winner: The sun beats the shit out of a dirty road called Raton Pass where the closest thing to a pair of matching earrings is a guy named Carl who punches you in the head with his fist.
Trust me, there is no explaining why Carl is relatable in any way to a matched pair of earrings in the ensuing tale. No, what I mean is I could see something identifiable: a relationship, a behavior, a quick insightful commentary for instance "Attention is the most worthless of currency on the planet," I said.
And it's everywhere, attention is. You want a nice story? Well life is a bizarre mind trip and then you die so jokes on you! But most did not appear to have a point to the grotesquerie; no context, no metaphor, no deep statements for the reader I made that up… the version in Gutshot would have just jumped into the eating the eyeballs in the kitchen scene.
My favorite stories were Labryinth and Year of the Snake. Other shout-outs are Blood and Thank You which was actually pretty great and one of the few moments I laughed aloud.
TOB brackets, I would have put the book down at page 10, definitely by page 20, for sure after attempting two entire sections and wanting to kill someone.
The writing itself I have no qualms with: the form is excellent and there is usually a beginning, middle and end to the stories.
But the stories do not give back anything to the reader with the exception of those gut reactions. There is no illumination quite the opposite or context for greater meaning and the reactions get old quickly and lose their impact.
Eventually one feels like the person next to the pair at a party who only make abstract insider references and jokes from their shared experience in their conversation.
For some reason they believe they are actually conversing rather than just alluding to their past and they alienate everyone on the outside of the conversation.
Literature should invoke a sense of recognition and empathy even when dealing with the most foreign topics and in my opinion Gutshot:Stories fails this primary task.
May 22, Chris Blocker rated it liked it. This was my first run in with Amelia Gray, but I sort of knew what to expect from her: dark, strange, talented.
No doubt, all those things are true. There's just enough detail in these stories to make them creepy, yet universal and accessible.
I got the sense that Gray really enjoys getting into her stories and characters. Then there are those stories in this collection that are strange, yet This was my first run in with Amelia Gray, but I sort of knew what to expect from her: dark, strange, talented.
Then there are those stories in this collection that are strange, yet beautiful. They had me scratching my head, uncertain and devoid of expectation, yet enjoying the process.
And then are all the others. These stories reminded me of a Mad Lib writer's exercise. They didn't evoke any sense of awe or understanding.
These just existed. Mad Lib stories are a hoot, but it's the creation that makes it fun. Reading another person's final story is like watching someone's birthday party through a window.
So, let's have our own Mad Lib party. Come up with a word for each of the following, paste them into the following story, and post your stories in the comments.
Come on, it'll be fun. Who knows, maybe your story will lead to an idea that is published in a big shot journal. I've heard it happens. He's happy with his job, but he wants more from life.

The girl likes to [verb], but doesn't know how to stop [gerund]. They talk about their problems. Bob thinks it would be best to move to [place], but because of the girl's deformity, they are forced to watch [noun plural] on the ocean.
It is a moment that forever defines the rest of their lives. Apr 24, Bud Smith rated it it was amazing. Overall, a brilliant assembly of unpredictable chunks of storytelling that amazed in their wonder and amazed too in their horror, blood, puke, flayed skin, Damn.

I found the stand out section of the book to be right smack in the middle. Gray fell into a pace, following the initial 80 something pages of perfect gloom, dread and violence, where she was writing stories that were more directly fables, puffy clouds with moments of solace, marvelous in execution and addictive as fuck to breeze through.
Those stories were a turning point in the tone, that came as a relief They're return and the shift in tone of the book, back tot he dark, was the shit.
The cover art, with a sketch of a woman with her vulnerable throat ripped out and she doesn't even seem to be phased summarizes this collection perfectly.

At the 11th Precinct , Detective Bell questions Tremaine and excuses himself when he sees that Watson has arrived from London. Reporting that Tremaine had nothing to tell him that wasn't in the police report, Bell also says that Gregson is still in critical condition.
Watson offers to join investigating who shot Gregson. Returning to The Brownstone , Watson finds it empty and none of the utilities working.
Although prohibited from being in the US, Holmes has accompanied Watson and she indicates that Bell didn't suspect Holmes came with her from London.
Is the Captain doing any better? While discussing getting furniture and the utilities working, Watson indicates that police believe Gregson was driving home from the precinct, exited his car, was shot in the back and stomach, before driving away and crashing.
Notified by Paige that she can see Gregson in the hospital, Watson cautions Holmes from being discovered while he investigates the route Gregson's car took.
At the hospital, Paige is now confined to a wheelchair due to the progression of MS. Saying Gregson called her when he left the precinct, as he does every night, she has no suspects and no indication where Gregson stopped at after he left the precinct.
At the crash scene with Tremaine, Holmes lies on the pavement where Gregson was found. Holmes is able to get Tremaine to recall he heard brakes, which he hadn't reported to police.
Several blocks away, Holmes finds skid marks which aren't on the route Gregson would have taken from the precinct.
Ain't you gonna get up now? At the Brownstone, looking at a map, Holmes shows Watson the route Gregson's car took and notes that Gregson sideswiped a parked car.
Having looked at photos of Gregson's jacket, Watson believes that one of the red stains on it was made from red clay, not blood.
Noting baseball fields use such clay on the base paths, they proceed to a field along the route Gregson took. Holmes finds a. Gutshot , bellybuster and inside straight draw are all terms used to describe a hand in which the player is drawing at a single card rank to make a straight.
By definition, this is at best a four-out draw there might be fewer outs if one or more of the necessary cards is already dead. For example, in a game of Hold 'em the player holds:.
