When The Stars Fade


The free preview on Smashwords begins with this story of the hapless Jimmy getting his ass kicked. Bad. It is brutal without being gratuitous. It was enough for me to want to read the rest. What I liked most about this story is the most effective use of flashback's I've come across. It's not unlike an episode of "Lost". You're in the present with Jimmy getting beat up by an unknown assailant - and then you're in his somewhat placid existence at work whereas he strives to drea...more

The second (The Second That Burns) was my least favorite, it started out really interesting but I kind of lost interest with the way it switched between the two main characters. The third (The Wrong Side of the Tracks) was my favorite. The "weird town in the middle of nowhere" has been done before, but this had a nice, eerie atmosphere and well-developed characters.
