Each short story is accompanied by its own book cover. Each of the stories are available for free elsewhere, but here they have been collected into one volume. This was a capstone project meant to merge photographic illustration with creative writing.

Reviews of Aenima by Stephanie Flint

Gerry Belt reviewed on May 30, 2017

I have learned that as we touch others (which we do all the time) we need learn how to let go so we can continue to be ourselves. I like that part of the meaning of this story.

Part fantasy, part sci-fi, an interesting little story with an almost, but not quite, predictable ending.

At first when I saw this was only 4 pages I thought it might be a prologue for a longer story, but it turns out to be a 1000 word short story challenge. From this standpoint, the author did very well to get a lot of information into a short word count and still have it flow well. My only misgivings are the way fae magic and Alchemy are presented as related and the unneeded mention of werewolves and vampires which play no part in the story. Otherwise, the description of the clockwork laboratory was done well and could have been the opening to a mystery story worth reading.

I haven't read much steampunk (by which I mean any), but this was definitely an interesting and well written little story. Neat idea and nice imagery.
