Good stuff....again. Credited Review
There has only been one story of yours I didn't really like. You know the one I'm sure. This again, is great stuff.

I'm a sucker for a Knight story. But only ones told well with reason. I love the stripping away of the armour and succuming to the humanity and the love which we all have. This is the true strength to defeat the enemy. Sure, not anew concept but the reason it is classic is that it resonates still.

The creation of the world is well done, the cobbles and well bring the courtyard of castles to mind effectively. The choice of words is great for hinting at the sexual undertones.

The mention of the Wreak is delivered in a matter of fact way that fits rather than seeming like an add on.

Another good, solid short story.

It's a subject that us a real fear for any parent and you have done a great job in wringing so much tension out if it and adding those little clues that hint at the worst. The candle being extinguished,... read

    Although I enjoyed the descriptive writing and the atmosphere created, I just didn't understand the full meaning of the story. The writing is good. I liked the trippy colours and creatures that are created and how they are explained to us. As an exercise in that kind of prose, it is a success. As I says, I didn't manage to follow the meaning and this made me feel a bit alien... read
