- Worlds Within Worlds
on July 22, 2011
I was very impressed with this very "heady" type of poetry. It's a cross between spiritual thoughts and fantasy. I liked most of the poems / lyrics within this collection. Right from the beginning, the work entitled "I Wish I Was" was something I believe that many people could relate to because it speaks about a mundane reality and how it would be so much more exciting to escape from it and live in some other type of existence / world (with an opening reference to the Lord of Rings - which is apropos since the author hails from a region of the world "The Lord of Rings" movies were filmed). I also enjoyed reading "If the Society Can't Be Saved" because again it is a poem that many individuals feel a connection to, especially when it echoes how people only really care about themselves through their daily lives. There is much more to be grasped and eaten up in the rest of the poems - including subjects such as the afterlife and the cosmic eternity. All in all I found this book very stimulating and spiritual in nature. If you enjoy reading this type of poetry, I would highly recommend this.
- The Gallery is Now Presenting...:A Horror Story

It's devious and delectable. "The Gallery is Now Presenting" is an artful short story that is filled with all the ingredients a tale of horror needs: suspense, mystery, creepy feelings, an insanely powerful plot, and an unexpected ending. I would definitely recommend this. A very good read with a creative and artful finish to the story.
- The Echo of Bones: A Science Fiction Story
on Aug. 12, 2011
A very clever and well written story. The theme and characters could very well have been portrayed in an episode of either "The X-Files" or "Bones." As with other works by the author, this short story is an excellent read. I would highly recommend this. Make no bones about it, you will keep guessing until the very end.
