Review by: Audrey Driscoll on May 23, 2011 :
From Such Small Things is a well-crafted and adroitly written short ghost story. Using plain, matter-of-fact language, Brian Harmon ratchets up the tension so gradually that the reader experiences the weird events in Allan's house in much the way that Allan does. Footsteps overhead, open doors that should be closed -- and the cat! These details have appeared in many ghost stories, for a good reason: they have the power to creep you out and wish you could tell the protagonist, "Don't you go up those stairs!"
My only quibbles are a paucity of information about Allan's neighborhood and neighbors. I assumed the setting was contemporary suburbia, but the story would have been enhanced by a bit more detail.
It's a good read, but maybe not late at night when you're alone in the house!
