About Walter Lazo

“Our free short stories are intended as a doorway to our more mature premium works. Their purpose is to showcase the author’s writing style and use of evocative imagery. Although these are his earlier works—he has gotten much better since—they serve as a nice introduction to his thematic concerns as well as to his belief that a story has to be believed in to be effective. Therefore, what he presents in these stories are situations and the reactions of characters within those situations.”

Walter Lazo was born in Cambridge, MA, and now lives in North Carolina. As a child he discovered his love of Weird Fiction and large, epic, heroic stories, as well as German and Greek mythology, devouring the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen King, the Grimm brothers, Bram Stoker, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Walter grew up reading the short stories of Richard Matheson, and later discovered the works of the great science fiction writers of the 20th century; namely, Philip K. Dick, Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov.

He enjoys writing horror and science fiction stories with an occasional martial arts story thrown in for good measure. He is currently obsessed with the short story form and hopes that it will make a comeback in popularity. As an adult he has tried to create his own mythos, writing about the Demon World and other creatures that torment men’s dreams.

He is a longtime fan of Stephen King and of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Reviews of Slaughter Wolf by Walter Lazo

David Blake reviewed on July 6, 2013

I tend not to be drawn towards horror stories featuring vampires, zombies or werewolves because there are so many of them about and I prefer to experience more original types of menace. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by this story, which in terms of plot and execution I found to be a big improvement on the other works I've read from Walter Lazo. The writing is generally very good and although the story concerns a werewolf, that element is really just a backdrop to a more human - and more rewarding - tale of good and evil. Okay, so there are a few minor errors (eg "we approached the shirtless man wearily" when I presume it should be 'warily') and there's a tendency to list details rather than blend them in. However the characters are believable, descriptions generally good, the vocabulary varied and imaginative, so all round a very enjoyable read.

This is an engaging short concerning how to kill a werewolf, which subverts and complements the usual old ideas. Some amount of thought clearly went in to it, and the writing is very good. SLAUGHTER WOLF seems like it may be an excerpt from a longer work, but stands alone quite well.

All in all, an enjoyable short read, and a very well presented e-book.

A gripping story as three werewolf hunters tackle the beast. The ending was possibly influenced by An "American Werewolf In London" but on a whole the story was still very original.
