“A very surprising short story from Glen Krisch. A piece of paranormal crime that felt like Glen was channeling Tom Piccirilli! I thought it was an amazing story and hope to see another work soon. Maybe a novella next?

Highly recommended for fans of both authors.”

Intriguing piece of slash fiction - an old man dying of cancer, his daughter lost to heroin and walking the night, a man obsessed with helping them solve their problems ... There was so much there, but only the bare bones are actually seen - you have to imagine the organs and meat and skin and pumping blood. I would love - LOVE - to see this turned into a novel, to explore these connections and people, to get further inside their heads. Well done, Mr. Krisch - well done!

Wielder is a very short story but it packs a most powerful punch. The center of the story revolves around a cop who can use his mind to "push" people to do his bidding. What he has them do...well.. you will be surprised. The story is horrific, gory, and intense. Another powerful piece of fiction from Glen Krish. Reading this will take a small amount of time out of your day, but it is Oh-So- Worth-It!! Highly Recommended!!!

I picked this book as it was free and i was in mood to read short stories

i started the book and took me some time to finish it. And it was difficult.
The narration was little cumbersome for me and i was not getting things .

the story is Ok and ends well too.

I give this book 2/5

A man dying of cancer wishes his daughter dead. She is a heroin addict and a whore. She is unfit to be a mother. He considers his daughter to be an unfit mother. He wants the grandchildren to be awarded to the state.

Will his dying wish come true?

A short story. 20-30 minutes of your time. Time will tell if I read other books from this author.

This one didn't do it for me. It's a short story that's a little confusing throughout then it just ends.
