A little weak in beginning is what I thought but that's like saying the uphill climb of a major roller coaster is boring. It's what you have to do to get over the hump and drop down into a totally insane ride of your life. I wish it was longer because I honestly loved it and wish it keep going. But like all great things, this too came to an end. Not a slow drawn out death but a fantastic and intriguing end that will make you want to call Mr. Roche on the phone and discuss the possibilities of th ...more

While far from edgy or avant garde, Fetch by Scott Roche is a remarkable little story with a number of uncommon observations lurking just beneath the surface. The story is written from the POV of one reverend Ian, the parish priest in a small Irish town. In a tone reminiscent of Flannery O’Connor, he tells his tale in an unaffected manner, while relaying the most agonizing circumstances and emotional trauma.

Father Ian is approached by a parishioner fearful that a doppelganger has come to do him

Honestly, the beginning did not pull me in. Was I tired? Was I jaded? I don't know, but I keep reading and hoping for the best.
This is some kind of literary trick by Mr. Roche because I was quickly caught off guard and I tumbled through the entire story, my mind and sense of safety assaulted by Roche's storytelling. I was honestly creeped out by the honesty of horror for a man of faith.
Great Story and Great Price. I am excited for Mr. Roche's future as a writer.

A military brat, fan of horror and occult fiction at an embarrassingly (for my parents anyway) young age, and a seeker of the true reality beyond that which we see every day, I try and include as much life experience in my writing as I can. Every story I write combines these elements into something that I hope you will not only enjoy, but tell all of your friends about. I am active in the podcast ...more
