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.

Nothing wrong with the above but you use Ďstillí twice in quick... read
A review of Mrs Merrywinter & the Unexpected Visitorby Mike Wolfson on 04/17/2013Hi Dan, Iím pretty sure that I owe you more favours than you owe me, so hereís the first of two free will reviews. Iíve reviewed the TS version of Mrs. Merrywinter. It was too difficult to get to my copy of Firewords due to a leaking boiler. Donít worry itís safe and dry. I just physically couldnít get to it. The beauty of a free will review is that Iíve got a bit more freedom... read
A review of A Walk In The Darkby Mike Wolfson on 04/15/2013Hi Marc, I thought that A Walk in The Dark was generally a well written piece. Vampires are very popular at the moment which is kind of a double edged sword. On one hand the popularity of the subject matter means thereís a market, which is a good thing. On the other hand with there being so much vampire material out there any writer needs to have something special or unique... read
