Review by: Robert Moons on Aug. 23, 2012 :
A gem of a story. Whereas some writer's heavily detailed descriptions can have me yawning in no time, Hickory's actually makes the story more interesting. He writes the story as if he is there at those moments in time, and then lets the reader share his intimate thoughts. The use of short sentences was refreshing and work very well in my view. Again, well done. Also, I'm glad you decided to place some of your work on smashwords. Now hundreds if not thousands will enjoy your writing.

Just when you think all the classic twists have been used up along comes a truly great one. On this little journey you think you know exactly where you are going, but on arrival it is way off of where your inner compass was leading you.

Hickory Cole's short story, Photographic, is extremely captivating. The reader is lured in for an emotional impact that reminds me of a turbulent plane ride ... without the crash.
The reader gets a bird's eye view inside the mind of a man who is troubled by a traumatic experience. The surprise ending is very satisfying. I would encourage everyone to read it!
I would love to see full length fiction from Hickory Cole.
