Reviews of The Variant Effect: Painkiller by G. Wells Taylor

MoratGurgeh reviewed on Aug. 17, 2013

An excellent short that follows on from the novel The Variant Effect and before The Variant Effect: GreenMourning. It's readable as a standalone story, but a lot of the references will pass you by if you haven't read the first (and highly recommended) novel.

I have enjoyed the whole Variant Effect series and this one is a great addition. Well written, and well thought out characters.

Taylor pulls no punches in this novella. His hard-boiled prose is as tough as his characters...This is a grown-up story for readers who like their fiction dark as midnight on a moonless night. And if you think DEXTER is chilling, wait until you meet PINOCCHIO.
