Smashwords book reviews by Alain Gomez

  • 13 Horror Stories on Feb. 10, 2011

    With each tale ranging between 400 and 600 words, McDonnell touches on all the classic facets of horror just a little too briefly. I would classify "13 Horror Stories" as a collection of flash fiction rather than short stories. Several of the stories had a very interesting premise that I honestly would have liked to have read more of. But each time the story cuts out before the tension is really built. A good example would be "Don't you just love weddings." It's a conversation that's maybe 100 words long that hints at the promise of a mutant bride. But that's it. I would have loved to have had more on that topic. The author could have easily written 5,000 on that storyline alone. I thoroughly enjoy endings that dangle. But I have to at least have time to get to know the characters on some level. To sum up: this collection is not a bad start for the author and actually not a bad read. The writing is rough around the edges but solid. The ideas are there; just take it a step further.
