Smashwords book reviews by David G Shrock

  • Something's Not Right on July 04, 2010

    Fun, clever stories into the weird. My favorite is "Neither teeter, nor totter" for its imaginative twisting of reality. The book is short, easily read in twenty minutes.
  • The First Tale on Dec. 29, 2010

    Fun adventure with some steampunk flare. The story moves and keeps a strong pace right to the end. Vertigo City is a cool place full of imaginative characters and neat technology.
  • Just My Blood Type on July 11, 2011

    This one-hour story switches between Xan and Theresa, trading questions and making their own music, a groove that carries us to the sweet end. Clevenger and Dorman make one hell of a team. This little bite will leave many looking for more stories.
  • Traitors (Crooked Fang) on Sep. 20, 2013

    Xan introduces his world with a playful style touched by his dark-offbeat humor. I feel I’m right there with Xan at Pale Rider, a little drinking hole, and riding with him in his Camaro. It’s a fun ride, too. Xan keeps things lively even when picking music on the radio. The love that went into writing and editing Traitors bleeds through at every turn, a smooth ride winding through the Xan’s feelings for his friend, Nin, and rising over the peak into a blaze at the Traitors bar. Xan realizes there’s more to this mission, and the story leaves us with a taste of things to come.
