Liked the story, Kenny. I always like the way you set up contrasts to create an impact. This one is entirely unsubtle way before the end, but in flash fiction there's not a lot of space for subtlety.

There were a couple of corrections I thought:

Quote:
Hell this is nineteen fuckin’ sixty-nine you’d think they’d freeze dry all this shit.
I thought you might want punctuation between the two clauses.

Quote:
I couldn’t’ tell
The extra apostrophe?

I don't have any issue with the simplistic language as it fits the narrator perfectly. I could do with a couple less swear words as it might have gone a little overboard, but again, it fits.

Ohhh okay got ya.


Here's a review for a thriller that grabs you by the neck and just won't let go until you're blue in the face and gasping for air!

Oh dear. I don't think I'll be reading that one. The character of Mark Sterling was enough to really turn me off without even considering the rest.

Don't let the fact that this is a first time author derail you from this top notch thriller! We check out Tomorrow City by Kirk Kjeldsen!

For those who like audio-books, Audible gave me 5 free copies of The Necromancer.

This is an audio-book for listening on iPad, iPod, Tablets, Kindles, etc.

You can get The Necromancer free. I'm doing a raffle on my website. Just add your name and in a few days I'll have the winners.

Thanks for looking,
Pam

Our review of the long awaited novel Snow White Sorrow by Cameron Jace was published early last month. Was the wait worth it?

Time for some dark epic fantasy with Game of Souls, the first in a trilogy by our own Terry C Simpson.

Another review. This time it's for The Long and The Short Swords by Gary Ballard. This is the fourth and last book of the Bridge Chronicles and it's been a fun ride.

Check out the review here: http://papyrus.calebblake.net/2013/0...-gary-ballard/

Thanks for the review, Caleb! I'm glad you liked it even if you didn't like the backstory to the Logan character.

Just an FYI, the Bridge character will return, he just won't be the main focus of the second series set in that universe.
