Reviews of The Long Case Clock: A Short Story by Ken Fry

Sahreth 'Baphy' Bowden reviewed on Oct. 10, 2020

I don't want to say too much for fear of ruining the story, but 'The Long Case Clock' gave me the feeling of Brothers Grimm meets Edgar Allan Poe. It had the eerie atmosphere/premise and violence of Poe's work with the morose warnings popular of Grimm's Fairy Tales. The way the author melded the psychological aspects of the main character's struggles with his own self-worth, dreams, and his crumbling relationship with a supernatural force that uses these things to nurture his darker, aggressive, and arguably selfish thoughts makes for an intriguing read which has the reader second-guessing their own feelings and actions as well as how much they are to blame for what dim places they may find themselves in.
