Really enjoyed this novella from a horror writer with a growing reputation. FRAGILE DREAMS is an intense head trip of dread and melancholy, pathos and hope, all bound in human emotion and the fear of monsters in the dark.

An enjoyable romp through the horror-filled confines of the burning house. Interesting to see how the writer's work has progressed and evolved since this story. Worth checking out.

More good work from Duncan Bradshaw, who is showing he can turn his hand to different sub-genres with comparative ease. Cool story. 3.5 stars.

A powerful and bleak tale set in colonial America. The rich language and prose held me spellbound, at times. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars it's a cool glimpse into different part of the devastated world depicted ..., 3 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A cracking novella from the same world as the novels OUTPOST, JUGGERNAUT, TERMINAL and IMPACT. Written in the succinct, brutal and fast-paced style that is Baker's trademark, and featuring a small cast of desperate characters, it's a cool glimpse into different part of the devastated world depicted in the novels. Would have liked it to be a bit longer, but that's a small complaint. Really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 12 Oct. 2015
A frenetic bloodbath of a novella wrapped around a fast-paced plot and diverse cast of characters ready to be sliced 'n' diced. But don't let the grindhouse tone of the story fool you into thinking it's merely pulp entertainment - there's quality writing and characterisation here, and plenty of it. A great start to the new series of Dark Minds novellas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crime and Punishment on the Streets of London., 16 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was already familiar with the work of Ben Jones, having read the novella 'Skewered' last year. It featured the character of Charlie Bars, and he returns in this full-length novel, caught up in a mystery that involves a missing woman, a maniac in a wooden mask, and bad things happening in London. It's violent and bleak, and I loved it. This is not a clichéd trip into London and there are no Eastender-ish/ 'Lock Stock' stereotypes. Charlie himself is a violent man, and he's no clean-cut hero, but he's trying to do the best he can and not return to his old life of crime. But's he's never far away from slipping back into the darkness.

Due to how well it's written I could see Ben Jones' vision of London, and it felt real, honest and powerful. There's a heart to the story that is very rare to find.
In particular, there was a fight scene in a shabby old pub, between Charlie Bars and two assailants, that was top drawer and had me riveted. There's some great dialogue too. This book deserves more attention.

One of the best novels I've read this year.
