Smashwords book reviews by Ahmed

  • Fearworld (A horror short story) on May 27, 2011

    A post-apocalyptic short about a town that's invaded with photophobic demons. And when I say short, it's short. Annoyingly short. Would've given it higher if it was a Stephen King-like novel chronicling different denizen's traumatic experiences etc. I'd love to see that. Maybe a sequel? Amazing short.
  • Fast Forward on Aug. 21, 2011

    An interesting short story about what happens when an average Joe discovers he has a TV set that sets itself to tune into the future. A good read, with some focus on the pros and cons of knowing too much about the future, with a chilling end to it all.
  • Golem on Aug. 28, 2011

    A short story that doesn't really give much of a backstory, and an attempt (Quan's story) wasn't very satisfactory. It's also got a mildly confusing ending.
  • Cultic on Aug. 30, 2011

    Recommended for a quick and interesting read.
  • When I Woke Up I Knew I was Dead: A Short Story on Sep. 02, 2011

    I was confused from start to finish on the main plot of the story. There was no actual explanation (not even briefly) on why those who were dead thought they were so. And what's up with all the profanity and unnecessary usage of sexual innuendo? I don't mind it, but it's a story of kids, and I don't see why some of that is used.
  • Hitchhiker on Oct. 17, 2011

    A few grammar (or publishing) mistakes, but other than that this short is OK. Very demented story.
  • Cupid's Maze on Dec. 07, 2011

    Definitely agree with this being a 'Stephen King'-esque take on corn mazes. Good dialogue, description etc. The next horror/thriller bestselling author.
  • Deadlocked on Jan. 04, 2012

    I love how the writer doesn't believe in happy endings (not yet, at least), and how our protagonist goes from one tribulation to the next in this zopocalypse short. A bit sad to see the sequel isn't free, but hey, we're all looking to make a living.
  • Something Wicked... on July 27, 2012

    A coulrophobic, solitary paranoid finds his past coming back for more... Good, short horror story.
