Tra-Con-Per-Ski!: A sampler of four sci fi and horror short stories
Tra-Con-Per-Ski!: A sampler of four sci fi and horror short stories
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent collection of stories, 25 Jan. 2015
Another great collection of short stories from Harvey Reynolds. I've also read his other collection which was also excellent; well-written and thoughtful stories with a strong horror focus.

I enjoyed these four very much, and the only reason I've given them 4 stars instead of 5 was that I prefer horror to science-fiction. Three of these have more of a sci-fi emphasis than a horror one; saying that, however, 'A Conversation in Modern Myths' is a creepy horror story constructed entirely of dialogue, which will bring a smile to the face of anyone who remembers the old, 'a couple went out parking one night and then heard on the radio...'

The strongest story in the collection, I believe, is 'The Shedding of the Skin', an atmospheric and chilling tale with a very strong sense of place. You can see yourself cruising down the river with the characters, and when the first shock comes, it gives you a real fright!

In short, another excellent collection well worth checking out for horror/sci-fi fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A series of claustrophobic, tension-ridden tales for the horror fan., 7 Dec. 2014
An accomplished collection of four nerve-jangling short stories in the vein of H.P.Lovecraft. Anyone familiar with the Cthulhu Mythos will enjoy these, particularly 'The Lurker in the Dark,' an exploratory horror story which put me in mind of 'Resident Evil' or a similar fight for survival through ravaged landscapes.

My favourite was 'Monophobia', told from the point of view of a survivor eking their way through a world decimated by a nasty series of events. There is a twist in the tale which I very much enjoyed.

Worth exploring for any horror fans out there.
