After reading the two short stories and the intro to Eric's novel, I must say I enjoyed more the feeling of relaxed competence in the snippet of the novel. The short stories, in contrast, seemed a bit clipped and less natural. I did admire his restsraint in the first short story having the narrator pick up the revolver and leaving it to the reader's imagination what he might do with it.
Both short stories had some typos and grammatical errors that I would prefer to comment on in an email or message board, but could find neither.
On the novel you invited constructive criticism, and, while this isn't FanStory, I'd be happy to comply with your invitation: You had a who/whom error in location 401, and I'm hoping it's a typo in location 506 "...how long IS I expected to perform in this capaacity." There's a definite type in location 525, "The Church has is recent years", while in 536 you've a bit of a redundancy in "...the forest here is thick here."
All in all though, I enjoyed what I read in the novel and will look forward to its polished publication.
