Smashwords book reviews by Gabriel Constans

  • Internal Dissent on Nov. 13, 2020

    Simply excellent. Very creative with different people talking in Cornelius's head (Mal, Boy Scout & Cool Guy) while he works out revenge on those he believes have aggrieved him. It is such a delight to discover an author that can write such a good short story because it is rare. They are hard to write well. This one has great dialogue (internally and externally), lots of tension, and a clear beginning, middle, and back around to the end (with a delightful surprise).
  • Bond Double Oh Who? on Nov. 13, 2020

    Another excellent short story by Vic Pandal. Reading it made me feel like a kid again. It was as if I was in Ace Bond's head and living every moment that he was. Imagination is a wonderful thing and this tale reminds us again of the pleasures of being a child and anyone you want to be.
  • The Leopard and the Red River on March 01, 2022

    Threads of Stephen King's, The Dark Tower, and Game of Thrones, run through this western fantasy novel, as Tenebrous (a "hero"), Caillte (a with and queen), intermix with Kahn, Bell, Colm, Dogda, Lug, Simon, Valentine, Colonel Edmund, and Maria. The story is well written and takes you into its evil, loving and power hungry arms. I actually liked it better than many of Stephen King books I've read.
