Smashwords book reviews by Shannon Mawhiney

  • The Hog Killin' on March 20, 2011

    This story is well-written, and with a surprise ending. I would have liked to see more from it though: more description, more background, etc. In other words it could be expanded into a longer one to make a more complete story. Still, it's worth reading as is. I appreciate the author making me want to read more.
  • In Prison on March 20, 2011

    This is an interesting story that kept me intrigued to the end. I would have liked more definite answers at the end, even though I *think* I understand it as an allegory. Still, I'd like to know for sure. Enjoyable, and I could definitely see this being turned into a full book.
  • Meadowlark on March 20, 2011

    I love the dream sequence in this story. Very well written. Short of some spelling/grammar issues, I would like to read this expanded into a full novel.
  • Morphine on March 20, 2011

    This story was enjoyable to read, though I would have liked to see more. I'm assuming it is the first chapter of a not-yet-published book, but I don't know. The main character's actions seemed a little far-fetched at the end (trying not to spoil it here!), but otherwise the story kept me wanting to read more.
  • Evermore on March 20, 2011

    Nice short story; I enjoyed it. It's not clear why the detective seems to believe her unquestioningly, but otherwise it is well written.
  • City of Light on March 20, 2011

    I loved this story! I would definitely like to read more, and I hope it's being expanded into a novel. If it is, please let me know! :) You've created a fantastic world here. Great job.
  • Cuentos on April 17, 2011

    I haven't had a book of short stories to read in awhile, and I enjoyed this break from reading longer novels. From vampires to zombies to sci-fi space stories, Edwin Stark's descriptive writing style is great and keeps you reading. He shares some creepy and twisted tales in this collection, and I recommend it for anyone looking for that genre.
