By Matti Folks - Published on Amazon.com

A wise man once said in a podcast I listened to recently that three-star reviews are even better than 4 or 5 star reviews. So, neener neener you over-starring reviewers!

The primary strength of Colin's latest work is also its primary weakness. The stories here are short...really short...so short, in fact, that they seem to have been tossed off in the Emperor's Lounge at Beijing International Airport while waiting for a plane to take off. Oops, there's the boarding call, better finish this one up right quick...there, done! This does of course allow the reader to consume the stories en masse in one sitting, which is of course what the author intended. Bravo Colin on that one! My only issue here is that the endings leave too much to the imagination. I want to know what happens when the alien gets back and Squidhound is finishing his masterwork. What is "The Answer"? What is "The Question"? I want to know what comes next...the right away "next", the conclusion to the tension, denouement. We as readers need that to be satisfied. Our imagination engine is tooled to lend reality to your writing, but it is your responsibility as the writer to satisfy that engine with fuel.

You are immediately sucked in by the author's voice. He is quickly becoming a master at setting the scene, introducing the most important characters, and sending them off with the action in tow. It's easy to get lost in the fantastical scenarios. This is an essential talent for any writer. but the most difficult, and in my opinion most essential skill for any writer is knowing how to conclude the action with resolution, even in the span of only a couple of pages that many short stories occupy. Work on that one, Colin, and you will write a best-seller one day.

Anyway, I have always had a soft spot in my heart for mad scientists and their deadly gadgets. In that regard, I am doubly satisfied with this collection. Thanks again Colin. Keep em coming...
HASH(0x975f63a8) out of 5 stars Pretty light reading for world-ending fare... 29 July 2014
By TJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was provided a copy of this book from Asymmetrical Press. However, it did take me a year to get to it so I might not find any additional requests from them.

This was a quick read that I very much enjoyed. I easily read the entire thing in about four hours and thought it would make a nice break in between the Game of Thrones reviews.

7 or 8 Ways to End the World is exactly that. This collection of short fiction explores multiple possibilities for how the world might end, some more plausible and thought-provoking than others. The stories contained in this collection are for people who like to think more so than for the action adventure addict. Mr. Wright explores several scenarios and it had a bit of that Twilight Zone flavor in my opinion.

The author has a good voice and I very much enjoyed his storytelling style. As this a short story collection I would being doing an injustice to give too much detail. If you enjoy short fiction you can pick up the Kindle version for under $1.
HASH(0x910411bc) out of 5 stars Simply Interesting 3 Aug. 2013
By Eddy Azar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The only reason I give this book less than 5 stars is because I'm comparing it to Colin's other books.

The books Colin writes are interesting, beautiful to read and, most importantly, inspirational. The characters are people that you can learn from and strive to emulate. You see their mindsets, how they carry themselves, their life philosophies and the way they apply them to reality...and you find yourself admiring them.

7 or 8 Ways To End The World is an interesting and enjoyable read, and not all that inspirational. Great for an hour or two of fantasy.

For the cost of a dollar...yeah, definitely worth it.

I have to say I really like how Colin writes. He's clever and succinct, and always takes me on the journey with him no matter where it leads. And sometimes I'm not sure where it's going, but in the end we arrive there at the same time! I know he's young but he writes with the wisdom and worldliness of someone beyond his age. I'm sure that's a reflection of his pursuit of world travels which he continues to do in amazing leaps and bounds. This book is a little in the category of 'all over the map' but I liked that quality and it held me until the end. . .of the book, that is, not the world.
HASH(0x90fab7f8) out of 5 stars the many faces of The End 30 July 2013
By Joseph S - Published on Amazon.com

This quick read provided by Colin Wright allows us to sail through various literary genre - fantasy, mystery, sci fi, even religion. Each character tells a unique story, each story brings a 'no way!!!' moment and the ending leaves you thinking 'what would I do if I were in his/her place?'. And it comes to show, the end of the world as we know it might not be just a single collective apocalyptic image - the end comes in all shapes and sizes!
