  • Valley of Sorrows on March 25, 2013

    For anyone who comes across this with the thought of whether to take the chance, rest assured that this might be one of the finest novels you'll EVER read. Valley of Sorrows was so impressive to me that I have reached a point of irritation with all the people I have recommended it to, and I still don't think it can be recommended enough. The story is wondrous and possessing of great depth, the characters are engaging and so realistic, and the overall accomplishment just might find its way to the movies. Yes, it is that good! I will never forget this story.
  • The Guild of Fallen Clowns on Aug. 11, 2013

    I very much enjoyed this book. While one might look at this and think it'll be too silly or contrived to bother with, I took a chance on that and found out, with pleasant surprise, that this is a fun and enjoyable story. I found the transition of the main character smart and well-paced, and I particularly liked how the various clowns were put together to represent various issues and fears in one's life. I'm not giving five stars lightly; this is a good read for anyone wanting to get away from the bogged down mainstream.

    I'm quite happy to write a review of this fun and well-done work. I truly enjoyed all of these stories, with some being more than a bit memorable. I very much enjoy anthologies anyway, but I really liked the idea of theming from several talented sources. I can say this gets my highest regards and I will promptly be placing a proper review for it on Hubpages. I tip my hat to all involved.
