A Thread of Truth beautifully showcases all the different nuances and flavours of Nina Allan's literary writing style. She writes fascinatingly dark and emotional fiction that is speckled with brutality and honesty that is seldom found in modern speculative fiction. Her writing can be described as a harmonious blend of fantasy, realism and truth.
Nina Allan excels at writing about the lives of the protagonists and their feelings and problems. She understands that well-created characters are an important part of the stories and their depth. She easily delves into the lives and pasts of the characters and examines their feelings, hopes and fears.
There's quiet power and subtle horror in these stories that will intrigue readers. One of the best things about this collection is that the stories have tiny elements and clues that hint at something peculiar, unsettling or supernatural. Small details and little things mean a lot in these stories, because just a few words or a couple of sentences may reveal that all may not be what it seems to be.
I'm sure that everyone who has ever read classic horror and weird fiction stories by Arthur Machen and other similar authors will find something in this collection that will allure them. Although the contents of the stories vary a lot, some of the stories have a touch of good old-fashioned eeriness them that will fascinate many readers.Read more ›
