Gareth Alan lives in the north west of England where he sits on his arse all day, writing short stories, painting pictures and moaning about things that do his head in. He enjoys a good swear and he thinks that he is 'ard... but he isn't. Also he has a beard.
I must admit, I only downloaded this because of the brilliant book cover. It reminds me of 80s thrash metal album covers. The Fruit Of Thy Womb is a unique zombie tale told with none stop action and it gets right down to the point to keep you reading. Weaved into the story is commentary about greedy corporations ruining in the world, a topic that always gets me going. Here, have 5 stars.
This is some creative writing. A short piece that reminded me of bullshit meetings I occasionally have to sit through at work. Very well written. At one point I thought I was reading a poem, and at loads of other points I was wondering what certain words meant. Good job Kindles have dictionaries. That's not a bad thing though, twas a fun little read and it killed some time at work.
Nicely written story as usual from Buchanan. It reminded me of when I look at people who have worked at the same place as me for like 25 years and their whole life revolves around the place and they'd be lost without it. I look at them and think, Jesus Christ, I hope I never get like that. Different subject, but that's what it made me think of. Anyway, nice use of language and plenty of swear words to make you chuckle... or to offend you.
That was a strange little story, I don't even know what was going on, but I liked it. Sometimes my eye twitches. Now I'm scared that there's a black sphere in there! I wish the story was a little longer, but it worked well as a flash. I shall have to check out the anthology from whence it came.
