Well, this morning was an other first for my little publishing enterprise. Penny Dread Tales Volume One got it’s first review on Amazon.com. I’m pleased as punch! I thought I’d share the review with you here on Diascribe.
I will start by saying that I am not the biggest fan of science fiction so when a friend gave me a copy of this book to read I approached it with the intentions to not enjoy the stories. I found myself surprised at the creativity and writing skills of these authors, since most of these are authors who are publishing for the first time. I must say though that my favorite short story was authored by Jodi Franklin, she had a very interesting and intriguing setting for the story, and I for one would like to see more of her writings. I think a longer format would be wonderful for some of these authors to help them expand on the interesting themes that were touched upon in these stories. Overall this is a great read for fans of science fiction as well as those who are looking to possibly find the next breakout author before he or she has become mainstream.
And they said it couldn’t be done. To hell with em.
