"Reed masterfully turns his many eyes to the task of morphing eldritch cosmic horror to the task of heart-pounding, adreniline-fueled fear. A master story-teller whose nightmares manifest on the page." -John Baltisberger
Tumble Down this Cosmic Horror Rabbit Hole!
Was expecting more of quaint, small collection of short stories with a pinch of Lovecraftian influence... but what I received was four cosmic horror novellas that draw you in and look you right in the eye(s) until you have devoured the whole thing. This was no short endeavor either, at nearly 350 pages this was well worth the three bucks I paid for it. Absolutely masterfully organization that ties each story in together and then offers an intensely satisfying conclusion to your journey.
Oh The Humanity!
I went in to reading this completely blind. Catchy title...I'm in type of deal. I didn't realize this was a collection of stories so I was thrown for a loop at first but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of each story. Four stories centering around an unknown entity. What is it here for? How do we stop it? Read on to see if you can figure it out.
Four very diverse, descriptive and imaginative stories in this book. The author really did his research while writing them, that is very apparent. Great diversity of characters as well. Each story was a very enjoyable read, but I have to say "Anther Day" was my favourite. Book comes in at over 350 pages, so lots of bang for your buck here. Great book to whittle away an afternoon with. 5 stars
Four very fine stories here, you can tell the author really did his research work when writing them. Lots of diversity in his characters, which is refreshing. The subject matter is pretty diverse as well, I like the way the author envisioned these stories and made them come to life. The book comes in at 362 pages, so lots of bang for your buck. Great book to spend an afternoon with. 5 stars
