Pay This Amount by Daniel Scott, the follow-up collection to his critically acclaimed short-fiction collection, Some of Us Have to Get Up in the Morning.

Scott’s haunting and hilarious second collection is set in disparate spots across the American map—from Kansas to Cape Cod to New York City—and yet they are written with such piercing universality that you sense they could be happening right now in your town, on your street, maybe even in your own home. The stories delve deep into the lives and psyches of a stunning array of ordinary American misfits.

Pay This Amount is available for purchase from Laughing Fire Press, at, any online book retailer like and, and at your local bookstore.

“Scott speaks out for the trampled souls who struggle to see the light and in the process acknowledges their humanity while at the same time denying their characters any kind of simplified happy ending.”

—North Shore News

“Scott’s tales are written with much intelligence and social satire. They will put your problems into perspective.”

—EDGE Boston (see full review here).
