Smashwords book reviews by Eric Jeitner

  • In A Season Of Dead Weather on June 26, 2013

    This was a very good collection of weird fiction tales. The style, themes, and sense of subdued horror remind me a little of Thomas Ligotti. Though all were well-written stories, I was particularly impressed by "Lamia Dance."
  • Revenge in a Clockwork Universe on Sep. 06, 2013

    This is an incredibly well-written and humorous short. The peacock would easily make my list of Top 100 Literary Characters, if I actually had a list of the top 100 literary characters. You: Download it now.
  • In Extremis on June 25, 2014

    This story makes for an interesting take on the zombie subgenre. It blends some classic elements with a novel twist on religiosity. If you're a fan of zombie fiction, try this one out.
  • Second on June 26, 2014

    A very clever, well-paced, well-executed story. Well worth a read.
  • An Apotheosis on June 30, 2014

    An entertaining, well-written story, with great use of character dissonance. Exceptionally funny, too; filled with wry humor. Download this one right now and enjoy it.
  • Exit Nothing on July 07, 2014

    An engaging read. I like the non-chronological drift of the narrative and the direct, sometimes terse voice of the narrator. A very flawed, very believable character.
