I am not a lover of poetry, mainly because I do not understand what the author is trying to say. Mr. MacGowan’s The Hunter and the Elf Queen is the exception. I thoroughly enjoyed and, best of all, understood this story of love and loss. “And the Hunter eventually, predictably, Fails his Love.” Thank you, Mr. MacGowan for introducing me to poetry.
Eddie's Shorts, what a hoot. The first story Bedlam...is a mix between Forest Gump and Twilight Zone.
Eight, Seven Central and Mountain...reminds me why I stopped watching television. An extremely realistic view of "What's on TV", flipping the channels and then realizing the TV is better off...OFF.
67 Feet in the Air...At some points a little rambling but stick with it...the ending is a shocker.
Drain Bamage...Weird, that's a really good word for this one. Take a joyride with danger, creepy and mixed emotions. You'll get out...A Little Drain Bamaged, yourself.
This is a great sampler for anyone wondering about independent writers. This book is a wonderful collection of short stories of 100 words or less. There is a story for everyone, I have my favorites. Just beware where you read...you WILL bust out laughing and saying a whole bunch of OMGs.
When I started this book, I thought this had to be a child’s book, with a title like Let’s Pretend…boy was I wrong. When a child’s imagination goes from the virtual world to the here and now, he finds himself tormented by a Darth Vader poster and literally drawn into a world he watches everyday. This book will send shivers down your spine…at least it did to me. The whole time, I imagined how horrible it would have been for me, as a child, with my wild imagination to see my imaginary friends, heroes and monsters come to life. Towards the end of the book you’re telling yourself, it’ll be ok there’s always a happy ending… I feel sorry for you!!!
This is a short story that will grip the reader until the very end. Find out what happens when Frank's love for his garden goes a little beyond the bend. This book gives a new meaning to the phrase "green thumb". Larry, Frank's brother, has to run and fight for his life as his brother's garden comes to life with an arsenal of vegetables and a thirst for blood. It's only purpose is to kill him for interfering with the love affair between Frank and his vegetable garden.
If you are easily offended by the supernatural, this book is not for you. For those with an imagination and a flavor for horror, this is a must read.
Be careful what you eat...roadkill can be harmful to your health. The author does a good job of bringing the reader into the horror and gore of the story. I did feel that the story was complete and well told, but too short; I would've love there to be much much more.
