Product Description

Product Description

There is something beyond everything



The demons of darkness have summoned... and this time, the visions are true...



For many of us, the days of youth are remembered with warmth and nostalgia. Visions of old hang in the light, crisp and spared, never to be lost. But for some of us, there is darkness. And we find ourselves trapped, haunted, followed... by the demons of our past. And as hard as we try, as far as we push into that bleeding dark, there is nothing


The Followers is a short story rife with visions. A true novella that recounts one fateful day in the summer of youth. Described by some as supernatural, and others as gothic horror, this short story goes where few have dared.

Into a world of magical darkness... into the Multiverse and beyond...

5.0 out of 5 stars Through the Looking Glass 6 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A trippy, gothic/fantasy story that reads like a drug-fuelled trip through your wildest childhood memories and fantasies. The Followers tracks the imaginations of its narrator as he tracks and chases a winged creature through the scenes of his home and school life. His story is later intertwined with the story of a girl on her way to a party to get as drunk as she possibly can, encountering an unforeseen and traumatic situation on the way.

A unique, interesting and crazy story painted with a very talented and descriptive hand, culminating in a number of twists that link both of the story-paths and characters together. A really enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars HAUNTING 13 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This little novella is a mind-bender. There are details that seem to evade upon the first reading that later come together. You almost feel like you've jumped into a different world. It's a world similar to our own but with various realities overlaid. The Followers is a complex work that will make your skin crawl as your brain simmers on the possibilities.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should look down the rabbit hole 31 Oct 2012
By Sebastian Briglia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading The Followers felt like the moment of suspension immediately following the opening of a parachute while sky-diving. It manages to deliver a wave of insight on the experience of growing up and being alive from the inside out while giving you space to reflect. Stylish, poetic images drive this visionary novella like brush strokes in an impressionist painting. Then the plot starts to twist and you are not done with it until it's done with you. An intense trip.

This provocative book suggests new dimensions of reality by taking you down the rabbit hole, completely avoiding the spoon-feeding of ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forget logic 16 Dec 2012
By Tammy Hall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My initial reaction to this book was total confusion. So then I went back and read the book again only to gain a bit more understanding. The Followers for me was like being in a drug induced fog. It honestly gave me a headache try to make sense of it and that is when it hit me I was trying to make the story logical. There is no logic to The Followers it just is. Once I was able to take the logic out and just sit back and read I found that I did enjoy the story. It is definitely one heck of a ride that is for sure. It almost made me feel as though I was in a Twilight Zone episode.

Evan Bollinger did a nice job of taking you on a trip through an alternate dimension of sorts. I am glad I did give the book a second chance. If your interested in a trip in to a fantasy dimension I recommend picking up Evan's book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Captured My Attention and Imagination From the Beginning 8 Oct 2012
By MartyH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I haven't read many fantasies but after reading this story I may have to correct that oversight in the future. The Followers captured my attention from the very beginning. The author has a magnetic writing style that pulls you into the musings of a child on a fascinating journey, complete with more than a few hints of malice and mystery, in pursuit of a shadowy creature. Enjoyed this book and am happy to recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars strange and lovely 1 Feb 2013
By Tahlia Newland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a strange little book, a novella length story about a boy who climbs a tree, sees a large black flying creature with claws, soft ears and fur, and then follows it along the street, to the boy's school, then home again via the public swimming pool. Interspersed with that thread is the story of Carly, a teenager on her way to visit her friends for a night of drinking. Throughout both threads is another voice, this one disembodied, that speaks of the multiverse and how it shows itself in confusing circumstances. That gives us an idea about what is going on here, because the story is somewhat disjointed, sometimes jumping quickly from character to character and even from one version of a character to another version of the same character. Despite this, we are always clear whose point of view we are viewing the action from, and all the threads come together nicely in the end.

It's the kind of book that niggles at your consciousness, leaving you with a sense of possibility, a feeling that the universe is somewhat stranger and more intricately linked than you might have previously imagined. In some respects it's amazing that the story hangs together at all, yet it does, a fact that indicates a certain amount of skill on the author's part. No section is ever too long or too short and the changes happen more quickly as the book nears its conclusion - a good pacing technique.

This is metaphysical fiction in that it presents a thought provoking vision of the universe, one that affects the way we experience our world. We are never sure if the flying creature is real or an extended metaphor, perhaps it is both, or neither. All possibilities seem, not only possible, but also perfectly reasonable. Though the writing could do with a bit of minor tweaking in places, it is essentially a well-crafted and well finished book, which I recommend to anyone who likes something different.
