It's not easy to hate Ben Peek.

I mean, there's the constant negativity, the bitchy put-downs, the passive aggressive arguments and the cut of his jib, but it's not that. It's that he finds those who hate him and thrashes them (and all their offspring, yea unto the seventh generation) within an inch of their miserable lives. And then takes that inch with a slow serrated leer.

But I do hate Ben Peek. Some poor bugger has to.
Twenty-Six Lies/One Truth, written by Ben Peek, illustrated by Anna Brown, cover by Andrew Macrae. Buy it from Amazon, buy it from Wheatland Press.
