  • Hunting the Vampire (Short Story) on Sep. 10, 2011

    Thank you for not giving us a vampire love story. I like how the protagonist is not your typical save-the-world hero, and it's pretty brave of the author to create a protagonist that is twisted and evil. Makes me wonder how the author will develop this...I'm sensing a series....
  • Zombie Nights on March 18, 2012

    I have always like zombie stories and vampires stories. i already expected there wouldn't be any gore and zombie apocalypse in this story, as the author already specified so. That said, I have to say i like it. A little look into what a zombie would think about if it could actually think. A little cliff-hanger in the end which is good. I just wished he developed the characters more..i seem to find something missing there..i thought Cookie would be a very important character...guess not.

    "Nnnoooooooooooooo," is the first thought that ran in my head when i realized i have read the last page. No. The story can't possibly be over so soon?! I want more!
