The shock and awe of everyday life. The strange and familiar. All of this comes alive in my fiction. I am a southern writer that wants to follow in the footsteps of modern southern writers like Ron Rash and Daniel Woodrell.

Smashwords book reviews by DL Stone

  • The Photo-album on May 20, 2011

    Interesting premise, but it starts off rather slow. The unicorn area should be extended some, and the details don't fit in well with the narrative which slows the story.
  • Night of the Were-Squirrels on May 21, 2011

    Now I want to kill me a were-squirrel. This story was excellent from start to finish. The story was fluid and pulls the reader right in. Great Job!
  • Sunset on Mars and Other Stories on May 22, 2011

    Great shorts. I wanted them to go on longer. The zombie story is my favorite. Reminded me of old Ray Bradbury.
  • The Old Lady That Tends the Graveyard. on May 23, 2011

    An okay fairy tale.
  • The PBS Painter's Tale on May 23, 2011

    A master's touch without the happy little trees.
  • Smoke and the Unventilated b/w The Passage on May 24, 2011

    Very minimalist with reaching story lines, but the details are very vivid.
  • Two in a Tent: Camping Humor on June 04, 2011

    Funny stuff. I preferred the first story more. These stories remind me of why I never go camping.
  • The Space Between Things on June 13, 2011

    Very well written, and spooky. I hung on every word.
  • The Alzheimer's Book Club on June 18, 2011

    Interesting read. A little slow, but amusing. It's like a Fahrenheit 451 in a retirement home.
  • The Pot Poachers on July 01, 2011

    A great deep story. Masterfully crafted tale about loss and redemption. I can't wait to see more from this author.
  • The Dark on Aug. 13, 2011

    Thrilling little short about death coming for us all. Great read.
