About Darnell "Saki" Dickerson

Darnell "Saki" Dickerson has been writing fiction since he learned how to hold a pencil and hasn't stopped since. He goes by the Pen Name "Saki" which was the name revealed to him by his muse in eighth grade. Darnell will usually be found working through his backlog of "to read" books, planning a "next" book or story before even finishing the current one, spending time with his lovely girlfriend or doing what most people his age are good at - wasting time on Youtube.

Darnell has had some of his fiction and poetry published in high school and at his local library and has even won a few scholarships for it. He has a strong love of reading and writing Fantasy and Sci-fi fiction as well as a deep, morbid fascination with the darker side of the Horror/Thriller genre.

He is currently publishing short fiction and going through final revisions of his first novel.

Review by: David Blake on Sep. 20, 2012 :
This is an interesting approach for a horror story, even for one where the horror is sourced from real-life as opposed to the supernatural. The author even makes apologies for it, but as he points out this sort of thing does go on, so why not tackle it?

My main criticism with the story would be that the 'horror' element only manifests itself in the final twist (which I won't reveal), and up until that point the story could be going anywhere. To really succeed as a horror story it probably needs to build up an impending sense of doom or danger throughout the text, and maybe have some stronger foreshadowing of the climax. Cutaway scenes of the caretaker's preparations, perhaps?

There are a few grammatical errors in the piece but this young writer has had a good go at trying to capture the banter of two elderly ladies. A decent effort that shows promise.

Disturbing subject, but well done. Descriptive for being so short! Rated 3 only because selfishly I don't really enjoy short stories, but wanted to support this new author. His writing does make me want to read a full novel, hopefully less disturbing subject matter than the 2 short stories I've read. I would say if you enjoyed this then you would definitely enjoy his other [longer] short story, Flowers. [Be warned, also disturbing subject matter!]
