Some of the material is not for the squeamish but it never feels over the top and there is some very dark humour throughout. The author has included a fantastic introduction that sets the tone for the 18 stories ahead. I particularly enjoyed Weekend at Cairney's; a very amusing and intriguing story, involving some dubious characters exploiting a friend's hospitality. I genuinely had no idea of how it was going to end and was gripped throughout and was delighted with the conclusion.
I would recommend Fragments to anyone and I am intrigued to see what James Forrest does next.
I think this short story Dead Dark could be opened up to a further sequel or full book on this character, how is he viewed in his normal existence ? Does he hide fully his dark side and his inhuman urges ? When or how does he switch off the dynamic and switch to the diabolique ?
If fragment 1 leaves shards of intriguing clues, I can't wait to delve further into this darkly enchanting work.
For the Glaswegian reader, the landmarks are terrifyingly familiar, however if 'The Dictator' is any gauge, one does not have to be a native of the setting to enjoy and appreciate the storytelling in Fragments.
A debut to be proud of. My only complaint would be that, as with all engaging collections of short stories, I am now left wanting more.
