Review by: David Blake on May 6, 2013 :
I liked this. It's very short, but the writer has squeezed a lot of narrative into the story without detriment to the quality of the writing. It's fresh, atmospheric, spooky and thought-provoking, which is quite an achievement for just 800-or-so words.

Review by: Michael Carter on April 3, 2013 :
This is an admirable flash-fiction story, about some ancient rustic terror nestling in dead leaves and insect rot. It features very good, clear writing and a strong central visual image that lingers in the brain. I think this is really good; in its short length it brings to mind Lovecraft, and, more especially, Thomas Ligotti and Clive Barker. If I had written this story myself, I would be very happy. I look forward to more from this author.

Liam Barker's review at the bottom is too short to bother paying attention to.

Although I have read a few other similar tales, as short horror stories go this was still definitely one of the better ones. Well written with a good build up of tention that leads to a nasty and gripping conclusion.

And if Liam Harder thinks a story is "To short to bother reading" then I can only come to the conclusion that he must not of read it! So why give it a one star review?

This is a good short story. The author could have definitely written a lot more with it, but it was still good.

Review by: Rob Wilkins on March 24, 2013 :
A succinct and enjoyable horror romp that's very reminiscent of the kind of tales you sometimes hear in local ghost-stories, I quite liked it. There were a couple places where the writing didn't quite work for me, but overall I liked the story and the style.

I would probably give it three and a half stars overall, which I'd usually round up to four. However, I'm giving it five because "too short to bother reading" is absolutely the dumbest reason I've ever seen to afford a short story a one star review. Not the first time I've been annoyed that you can't report reviews as well as books.
