by Peter G. Pollak
The photographer thought it was the perfect spot for a sunrise panorama until he heard someone call out for help. Would Desolation Ridge be the last stop for Logan Gifford or the first day of a new life?

Smashwords book reviews by Peter G. Pollak

A period piece, but not really a short story. Nothing "happens". It reads like it's part of a novel, as if the reader already has some information about the characters.
Otherwise this sentence doesn't make sense: "Because they had become friends before Jake won his first big case, Peter had been happy to ride in the Packard and was happy still to share Jake’s cheap wine now that he had started taking his wages however he could get them, the heady days of $5.00 an hour wages gone, along with the car and Manhattan address."
One typo: "Pease" should be "Please".

Crystal requested people review her "book." Crystal is to be commended for trying to write a book––although 15,000 words is novella or long short story––not a book. She's not ready to be an author, however. She needs to do more reading of good literature and spend more time learning the rules of English grammar. In the first two paragraphs of this story I found the following grammatical mistakes: commas used instead of periods, run-on sentences, missing periods at the end of sentences, a missing preposition, and incorrect word use (past when she meant passed). But the grammatical mistakes are just the beginning of the problems with this "book". Opal Rain is a child's horror story which takes place in an incompletely formed world. It is imitative and juvenile. If Crystal is smart, she will withdraw this book from the marketplace and try again in two or five years when she's ready to write something that meets today's standards for y.a. writing.
