Time Flies - Review Credited Review
Time Flies by Christopher Smith is a tale about a ruthless win at all costs individual, who ultimately gets his comeuppance.

The story is well written, and the structure of the story runs smoothly, although it was slightly overlong for me. My interest did start to wane a little, but this is mostly due to the fact that the core idea behind the story has been done before. The story reminded me of some of the horror shorts that used to find themselves on TV. However, this is a competent story from beginning to end.

I did like the ending. At the conclusion thereís normally a supernatural spooky explanation for the events, or the events are explained with rational reasoning. The ending of this story uses both methods, which was good. Thereís also good use of irony at the end. I didnít love this story, but I didnít hate it either. I hope it does well.

I thought the prose was clean and really easy to read. You have a strange... read

    Hi Peter, I can only presume that youíve uploaded an early version of this story. Itís really rare to see any technical errors in your work but this has got several. Iíll list them out at the end under reader notes. I think the concept here is fine. Memoirs have always been popular, so thereís no reason why this canít work too. Just make the most of the geographical setting... read
  • A review of Tales of Cilla
    by Mike Wolfson on 11/26/2013
    Hi Peter, I finally get assigned the first instalment. This is a really strong opening to Cillaís journal. You had me openly laughing. In fact my initial read was at work, and I had to stop reading as I was drawing too much attention to myself. The humour is strong and plentiful almost from paragraph to paragraph. I feel a bit of a fraud reviewing these because my comments... read
