Like he says, he's already reached halfway point of his life. Says what he thinks more often than he thinks of what he says. Not great at the friend thing. The decadent. Inspired by Jack Ketchum. A fan of many less known sports in his homeland - from curling to cricket.
Not all soldiers carry firearms and wear armour. Not all battlefields are full of trenches. This little boy fights a war of his life - and a war in which he has only one ally. The stakes are high.
This short story tells about love, sacrifice and helplessness. Throughout the eyes of a child we see that daily life can bring more struggle than any adult war.
Seven Deadly Sins - Romance Horror Anthology From The Fringe
on April 12, 2015
Seven short stories by indie authors of Fringe Fiction Goodreads group, revolving around the theme of Biblical seven deadly sins.
Just like any other anthology, good stories mix up with not so good ones. Sometimes it's clearly visible that those are indie authors with all their flaws (Bienvenue's story is definitely the best example of that) but there are also some perils.
I might say, the further you go, the better it goes. While the anthology starts in a pretty slow and mediocre matter, it finishes in a great way. Although all the stories are really short and it should take more than a couple minutes to read each one, they have their depth.
First two stories - didn't convince me at all. "The Mortician's Temptation" is just a mediocre story, "The Hunger of Love" loses pretty much on its apparent lack of proper proofreading. But then it gets much better. The next two ones are really decent - nothing really extraordinary though, but definitely the stories above average and worth reading. And then the last three - without a doubt the strongest asset of "Seven Deadly Sins".
It's a really good, quick and solid lecture. Doesn't take much time, tackles the topic in a pretty decent way... given the fact that it's available for free, definitely something I might recommend.
