Midnight Echo #10 by Craig Bezant
" So many good stories in this issue – but my absolute favourite was Martin Living's "Stillegeist". It gripped me from beginning to end, and finished off with a bang. A perfect story.

Naturally the last story in the issue is pretty good too ;) "

Wow, that was a fast read! King really does have an amazing ability to write completely invisibly, so you're never aware of the actual act of reading per se, just being drawn into and along the story and characters. Doctor Sleep isn't exactly classic...more

(Disclaimer - I have a story in this publication!)

Another excellent issue of Midnight Echo. Not every story worked for me personally, but the writing was impossible to fault. My favourite story in the issue was "Crybaby Bridge #25" by Gary Braunbeck....more
