5-STARS for DUST

Allison M. Dickson, Dust, review, short stories, short story
A hungry alien substance has traveled to Earth following a doomed Lunar mission, and it’s consuming everything it touches, leaving behind drifts of gray death. No life form stands a chance, but Clyde Jackson is tougher than most. He’s seen war and he’s been in plenty of foxholes. Now he’s living through the end of the world one day at a time in a panic room that has become his only refuge. It’s only a matter of time before the ventilation fails, and it’ll only take a single gray speck to end it all…

I had very high expectations for this short story and Ms. Dickson did not disappoint. Well written a always. Exciting, thought-provoking, timely, timeless. No doubt it deserves 5-stars. I expect this story to stand the test of time. Way to go, Ms. Dickson – another gem.

Nugget-Sized Bites!

Bryan W. Alaspa, Dark Destinies, Lovecraft, Patrick C. Greene, Poe, short stories

We are so honored today to have a review 
of Dark Destinies by Patrick C. Greene

~ “For some, it [the short story genre] is also an opportunity to break themselves in to a writer that they might want to try out in nugget-sized bites first. And it is in that vein that I tell you about Patrick C. Greene’s horrifying and excellent collection of short stories called Dark Destinies.”
