4.0 out of 5 stars Superhero kick assery at its finest!, 1 April 2016
This is a great superhero movie. Fast-paced with enough plot & intrigue to join together the superb action sequences. People who moan about the characters & plot being different to comic books miss the point that ongoing re-invention is what's made Batman and Superman endure for so long. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful formatting makes this unreadable on Kindle., 8 Jan. 2016
My review is specifically for the Kindle version. The artwork in this volume is great and the story incredibly inventive. It's nice to see a writer trying something completely bold & new with Batman. However, the formatting goes wrong two thirds through the book; pages behave as if they're portrait when they're landscape (including how you swipe to go to the next frame), and some are upside down. When you turn your Kindle to read them, they flip round again so they're still upside down, meaning they've been formatted/published incorrectly. Amazon have sorted the refund but this completely shambolic as a product.

This wallet is awful. I put 2 cards in it and it didn't close.

What Was It?, The Horla, and Other Horrors (Oldstyle Tales' Double Editions Book 1)

3.0 out of 5 stars Superb seminal horror, 1 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These stories are fantastic in both content and quality. They're original, influential and mind-blowing. The editor has done a great job by assembling them in one volume, and providing notes and comments. The downside is the formatting. Missing spaces, and peculiar page and line breaks ruin the flow of the stories. This was disappointing, though the pros outweigh the cons.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing Victorian thriller., 6 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd always heard of The Woman in White but am annoyed it took me so long to get around to reading it! The style of writing is peppered with Victorian linguistic flourishes but at the same time is accessible and easily read. The story is intricate and winding, and the characters engaging. Collins has done a fine job of making the heroes lovable and the villains despicable. I now plan to read more of the authors work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., 5 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found Kenneth Hite's opinions on HPL inaccessible. My expectation of the book was that it would be fact (rather than opinion)-based, though it may be my fault for not checking the description closely enough. I'm going to retry with an annotated collection.

This is a short, accessible guide to the specifics of developing a story idea into an ebook. Very straightforward and easy to understand.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddily presented, 18 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
HP Lovecraft's jazz-age weird fiction has influenced decades of writers, filmmakers and even musicians. This volume, though, is really amateurish. The number of spelling errors and formatting blunders completely distracts from the frequently masterful cosmic horror. All of these tales are available free online (since they're in the public domain) or in more expensive annotated collections. Disappointing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great traditional ghost stories., 26 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I heard about JS Le Fanu in a podcast on the subject of MR James. His style is similar, but for me more accessible than James; more humorous and less reliant on the reader having knowledge of Latin, or of antiquarian texts.

Very much recommended for readers looking for traditional ghostly yarns.

I've long been into DC and Marvel characters but heard about The Rocketeer in a Bettie Page documentary. Great writing, amazing visuals and a good price on Kindle. Recommended.
