FOR WHEN THE VEIL DROPS is an “enjoyable experience”

Amazon reader Charlotte Vale has posted a review of FOR WHEN THE VEIL DROPS, featuring my short story, “724”.

When my package containing my copy of FOR WHEN THE VEIL DROPS arrived, I ran into my home, tore open the box, and sat down to finish reading “724” by Christian A. Larsen. The 4-page Amazon teaser had drawn me into the story already. My anticipation grew as I waited the week for my book and was determined not to wait a minute more to find out what was going on with Owen and Linnie. I was not disappointed. The story makes a good prequel to the author’s novel LOSING TOUCH. Well, it would have made a good prequel if I hadn’t already read LOSING TOUCH. If you haven’t read it, do yourself a favor and order your copy today.

From “724” I went on to read “The Persistence of Frondu,” a story that took an odd happening and turned it into a difficult to express but extremely relatable feeling. Deciding that I should stand up and take my coat off at the very least before reading more I put the book down.

Later, in a cozy and quiet moment, I reread “724” and was struck by the expressive nature of certain phrases and the feelings that they generated. I moved on to “A Coat that Fell” and “Nothing Bad Has Ever Happened Here” wondering how the authors were going to pack an entire story into so few pages. Upon completing Michael Wehunt’s story, I actually threw the book down as if something would jump from its pages and get me. When I recovered myself, I read A. A. Garrison’s story, which didn’t help my nerves. It was disturbing for a whole new set of reasons.

Every evening I looked forward to sitting down with a new set of stories by a new set of authors and have enjoyed the experience. I also very much enjoyed the Post-scripts and Author Bios section allowing me to get to know these creative minds a little better.

FOR WHEN THE VEIL DROPS features “resonant, unbridled dark fiction” from the following authors:
