Atmosfear ? Credited Review
I like this type of very short stories built around a classic horror theme. I think this story can become more interesting with more work on both characters and atmosphere. I believe that with a more thoughtful choice of words, the amosphere can be made more interesting. The story needn't be much longer but needs reworking. That takes time and many attempts. At this time the story is still rough and obvious. The moment the evil comes could be delivered less obviously. The character of the girl needs work so that the reader can care more for her. At the moment she witnesses the story and allows us to see it through her eyes but we don't get to actually feel for her.

More work needed, but this story will work.

Because "Are We You?" really ought to have everything in the world going for it. It's a dynamic premise, the characters are put through the ringer, and you're dealing with really interesting subject matter (9/11... read
  • A review of The Appointment
    by **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/11/2014
    The Appointment has a strange but interesting premise. Death (personified as a ghastly old hag) arranges the moment of death with people, and then they forget. One man seems immune, so Death launches a campaign of psychological torment upon him. The story is primarily meant as a psychological horror/thriller about said man trying to protect his son, but there's some nice themes... read
