The writing was smooth, almost lyrical in places, and the imagery throughout superb. A wonderfully told tale that earned its five stars with style. Don't miss it! I look forward to reading more from these fine authors.
Miss any past bundles?

When you come across an author that writes like he does, this is what you do. He is definitely an author to take a look at and I'm excited to see what he gives us next. This story I will be completely honest with you, I purchased this for one reason and one reason only - Jason's story. This story was beyond good. Everything about it. I'm not even sure how to write this review because everything I want to say will give away just a little too much. It starts out and you're thinking one thing, then you get this twist and you're thinking another thing, then a couple of years pass and you're thinking something else, and then another twist and then another twist and you're like hmm Make sense?
That's where I'm at with this story. I liked it so much I'm speechless :p Now I need to check out what else is in this thing and see if anything comes close to matching up Nov 22, Adam Light rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror , jason-parent , shorts. This is my second Jason Parent read. The first was his brilliant nove, What Hides Within , easily one of the best books I have read this year. DEPTHS was written with surreal style, every word pulling me deeper into the depths of its mystery all the way to the end.
The official Richard Thomas website. Neo-noir, speculative fiction with a literary bent.
The authors did a great job of bringing the story to life. Highly enjoyable. I have not read any of the other material in the magazine yet, but so far I give it 5 stars on the merit of this story. I am a contributor to this volume so will refrain from rating it or commenting on my story unless anyone has questions for me which I am always happy to answer. The stories in the volume of Sanitarium range from okay to outstanding.
Luke Tarzian's "Frankenpuss" is nothing short of brilliant. Narrated from the perspective of a simpleton, it works here very well for a short story. I think I might go crazy coping with that for a novel-length tale, though. Apparently, it is a sequel to a story published in an I am a contributor to this volume so will refrain from rating it or commenting on my story unless anyone has questions for me which I am always happy to answer. Apparently, it is a sequel to a story published in an earlier volume.
Troy Severance's "Mr Reilly" and Ross Warren's "Mother" are both offbeat and unique tales, the latter reading a lot like a fantastic novella I read recently,.
Works for me! Corey Robert's story follows an unlikable protagonist who I can't help but relate to. Not sure what that says about me As for the rest of the magazine, I wasn't a fan of the dark verses, though that's not really my thing. I did like the objective reviews and, as a writer, the helpful advertisements for short story compilations. And the cover scheme - creepy, I like it. I look forward to reading more from Sanitarium, and have already purchased the next issue.

This is exactly the time when 1 got started as a science-fiction writer and made a modest reputation in that field.
Perhaps you would like to hear what it's like not only to live through a golden age but also to be one of the actors in the scene. In , I was working for the Interna- tional Correspondence Schools in Scranton, Pennsylvania, giving a course on inventions and patents.
My old college roommate at California Tech, Dr. Clark put me in touch with a local friend, P. Schuyler Miller, who worked for the Schenectady public school system and wrote SF on the side. Schuyler and I began collaboration on a novel. Genus Homo. We finished it in and finally sold it to a magazine in Every few weeks, I came in to visit him. To keep on eating, Clark, a more faithful reader of science-fiction pulps than I, wrote a couple?
I helped him with the plotting. He sent them to Astounding Stories and sold them. So, I wrote a couple on my own time and, to my astonishment, sold them, too.
