Just kidding.

But he has written about demons, dystopias and drive-thrus, so maybe nothing is off-limits.

Smashwords book reviews by Alex Hansen

  • Jim Fosse's Expense Claim on May 03, 2014

    This is well worth the short time it takes to read. It's entertaining the way the story unfolds and then spirals out of control. It's funny without ever being too silly and it's dark without becoming too creepy. I don't laugh out loud much when I read, but this gave me a few chuckles!
  • When I Was Not Myself on June 15, 2015

    Fascinating, thoughtful, and richly narrated.
  • Bears of Glass (Nightmares in the Dark, book #1) on June 20, 2016

    This is a fast-paced book with lots of twists, fright, and mystery. It has lots of stuff that younger readers should easily relate to, and I thought it was particularly good that Ryan's relationship with his sister Riley isn't one-dimensional. They don't get along very well, but you can still tell he cares about her, and I think that's an important element for a young adult book. The second half of the story centers on an eerily atmospheric struggle for survival, and if you've been able to put the book down before this point, you won't be able to once you've reached it. It's a quick read with a killer climax and a lot of chills...and as the first in the series, it promises many more chills to come.
  • A Murder of Crows on July 26, 2016

    It starts off as nothing earth-shattering, but don't let that fool you—this story has a few tricks up its sleeve. The creepiness of the crows builds steadily into a fury of confusion and terror, finally culminating in a truly unsettling, truly shocking ending. It's a quick read with a delicious payoff!
