Nightmares From Eberus - A Speculative Fiction Collection
on Sep. 01, 2010
First off, my guess is that Darcia Helle (who wrote the other review here) is either a relative of, friend of, or has invested money in JC De La Torre. Do not be fooled by the four-star review given to this collection of short stories. At best, Nightmares from Eberus is a book of rough outlines for stories, because nothing in this collection has even been proof read. It is plagued by horrible grammar, punctuation, and overuse of cliches and underuse of characterization. At worst, this book is a sloppy attempt to take $3.99 out of your pocket in exchange for a few hours of headache inducing fiction.
Although this review may seem like "internet hate," I am only posting this way to warn people away from purchasing this book, which I feel I have been bamboozled into reading.
