About Aaron Crocco

Aaron Crocco can be summed up as a writer and a podcaster, but complicating issues further is the fact that he's a huge geek, Apple fanboy and loves Back to the Future so much that he owns a Delorean. In the mid-2000′s his writing spark was reignited and he's been tearing up the keyboard ever since. His thriller Chrono Virus rocked readers with its original take on space travel. Aaron's apocalyptic debut series AS DARKNESS ENDS explores the end of the world from many points of view. His short story PARADOX was published in November, 2011. He hails from Long Island, NY and enjoys hockey, rock & roll, way too much ice cream, Nutella, and coffee.

Review by: Kurt McFry on May 08, 2012 :
I liked it, it was very well-written, but I guessed the ending pretty quickly, which meant plot holes were really obvious to me when it came about. I feel it would probably have worked better if it was in a longer work, with more meandering so it had less of a deus ex machina feel.

Still, his style was good and I'm definitely going to look into As Darkness Ends and any other writing he does soon.

A well written short story with a great set-up and story idea. It would be a great premise for a longer piece. Engaging, intriguing and well done.

I liked it. At first, I thought I knew where it was going, and was prepared to stop... but I couldn't. I'm prepared to read more of his writing.

Review by: Lelanthran Krishna Manickum on Nov. 16, 2011 :
While the setup was excellent, I felt it was a bit of a Deus Ex Machina ending. 3/5 stars for keeping me engaged, it would have been 4/5 if there was no Deus Ex Machina and 5/5 if not so many hints were given in the middle.

If you aren't especially OCD about details all fitting in, you'll probably enjoy this much more than I did, so try it.
