Smashwords book reviews by Chris Ellinger

  • Space Eldritch on Nov. 18, 2012

    An enjoyable read. I'm not much of a horror-reader normally, and really only downloaded this for the story by Howard Tayler. I wouldn't say the collection scared me, but I can't tell if that's because it wasn't scary or just because I lack the imagination to be frightened by good horror fiction. Style varied a bit from one story to the next, but there are a couple of really great ones. Flight of the Runewright was my favourite and showed the imagination and depth of world you would expect from Tayler. Menace under Mars was also enjoyable, having more of a classic-sci fi feel to it. Space was a really intriguing piece of world building. Generally speaking the literary quality was very good (only one story felt like a bit of a slog) which is one of the things I have often found suffers with sci fi (can't speak for horror having read little of it). Overall well worth the cost and the time to read.
