This short story by Jacob Stanley was an interesting read You were sucked into the story from the start and the author didn t take long to get to the crux of the story involving a kind of plant enhanced resurrection procedure.Although the elder brother character of Harold was a little one dimensional we have seen this kind of mad scientist in countless horror stories I got his motivations for the experiments he was performing.It was just darn shortThere was enough ideas in the 50 pages to fill a [...]
I enjoyed this story It was an addictive and fast read from page one, and satisfying considering the length I have read some of this author s other books but never any short stories I had some worries that I wouldn t like this as much, but he surprised me This reminds me of something Dean Koontz would write back in his early days when he wrote mostly horror with a science fiction basis, but this story also deals with other things and is not pure science fiction This author tends to combine and m [...]
Horror done correctly In The Shade excellent short horror story that does not rely on overwhelming gore or brutality to create the perfect sense of dread and loathing Jacob Stanley manages to develop his characters better in just a couple of chapters than many authors do in an entire trilogy The tone of the work has echoes of Lovecraft and King.I am really looking forward to reading from this author.
In the Shade A Horror NoveletteI enjoyed the concept of this story Everyone has a beginning Now they have a second chance This author has a mind that remind me of an earlier Dean Koontz Keep up the good work wishing you much success Enjoy this omelette I RECOMMEND.
What can I say What a book A very gross book but a great story How would you think of this, would recommend for horror fans Great book
Not GreatPredictable, boring Heavily was a rip off of invasion of the body snatchers Not very original or entertaining The main character was over the top and unconvincing Glad it was free.
this was definitely an interesting concept and had some twists that i didn t expect, but i also felt like the characters were rather two dimensional and there wasn t really any sufficient explanation for the magic sci fi part of the plot so that part of it just seemed a little bit silly to me i am really picky when it comes to stuff like that though like you had better have done some relevant scientific research if you want to put things like that in your book or else i m just going to be taken [...]
I really liked the concept and I wish it had been made into a full length novel As it is, the story is definitely different than anything I ve read in the past The story is just too short to develop any connection with the characters The story leaves a lot to be desired.
