November Mike Echo

Rated 4.00/5 based on 2 reviews
It has been six months since the government locked Greg in the bunker, his only company the ghostly recorded voices of the radio set and the blink of the cursor on the silent computer console.

He would be fine if it wasn't for the other Greg that was locked in with him; or the cartoon that has begun threatening him through the radio.

Review by: Uva_Be Dolezal on May 26, 2011 :
I give this story five stars, not because it’s “nice” as a 4 letter word, but because it makes me feel better about the box and screen I live in and work in front of every day.

I’ve read a few stories by Brenton Harper-Murray, and if a person needs some dystopian melodrama to make the grime of living seem less bad, then you have found the right author.

What do I mean by that ? well Buddha says life is suffering and Forest Gump says it’s a box of chocolates. If you want chocolate covered life, go read something else, if you want Philip K. Dick meets Franz Kaffka then read this.

Brenton is mercilessly witty and smart as hell. The story is perfectly written with great use of metaphor and bizarre transitions, plus the math mentioned in his science fiction is real math. The dream about the Kaluza–Klein theory in this story is superbly done.

Review by: Shannon Mawhiney on March 20, 2011 :
This was an enjoyable and genuinely creepy story. Parts with the cartoon on the radio were especially scary, and unique. I would have liked more of a surprise at the end, and more explanation as well. But overall it was still a good read.
