A Distortion of the Dead

Rated 3.80/5 based on 5 reviews
The horrors of trench warfare during the First World War would leave a lasting and devastating impression on those involved. For one Canadian private, living amongst the dead in the trenches was common.
Fighting the living dead, however, was not.

What a gripping short story!!! I was there, I was scared, I was holding my breath and rooting for the Canuck (of course, because I am Canadian). I noticed that this is a first for the author – I will definitely be checking out more of the author’s stories.

I really enjoyed reading this story. With just the slightest tweaks Here and there you'll have it just right. Well done overall. The pace is good, you've kept the interest consistent and a good ending. I also like that your interest and knowledge of WWI are reflected in the tale and woven together well to the darker aspects of the situation.

Review by: Nick Warren on May 15, 2012 :
An interesting idea and well written. I got the feeling that one more draft would have ironed out the few wrinkles that were evident. More so in the first half of the story, as if the writer was more concerned with the second half and conclusion than the beginning.

I also thought there was enough meat in it to warrant a longer story. Will recommend this to friends and colleagues and will look forward to more substantial works.

Review by: Rob Dunbar on April 29, 2012 :
An interesting read that successfully marries the horrors or WW 1 with a healthy dose WMD hysteria.
