Charles Dee Mitchell
This is a fun short novel by the 2011 winner of the Philip K. Dick award. Tropes from Steven Spielberg movies mix with the British inflection of a Quatermass film to tell a Lovecraftian tale of a English country house that reappears after vanishing eighty years ago. Some of the original in habitants are still inside, but they have brought with them swarms of very unpleasant, squiddy creatures. The story is non-stop action for 130 brief pages. I heard theme music and saw The End scroll across my ...more

I liked and enjoyed this book but I did feel that it was too short. It left too many loose ends after the finale as well as too many unanswered questions which you expected to get some backstory for and which I felt he could have worked on more. It read like the middle section of a much larger novel with all of the action sequences condensed into it. Which, I have to say was fun, but ultimately dissatisfying.

OK, but badly needed both editing and expanding. It suffered from the Novella curse of trying to tell a novel-length story in a fraction of the words. The characters were little more than stereotypes and at times it was difficult to remember which was which because they were so similar. The prose was repetitive and the whole Alternate-World thing just didn't work. There were some nice ideas, though, and I'd think about reading a full-length novel if he ever published one.

Morden consistently writes interesting characters in amazing situations which become great adventures. However this one is shorter than most.

This is a novella, I only realised this when I had only 50 pages to go, so I quickly realised the story was coming to a final climax and that would be it.

Still worth the read.

The first half was both incredibly creepy and really well done. Then after Dickson leaves, it basically changes to find weapons, kill the enemy, although there was some nice description of exactly where the soldiers get placed. (But no explanation of why Thacker didn't contact the soldiers on the doors other than the front and the kitchen!)
Stacey Douglas
Grim sci-fi/horror story well done by Morden, but I feel like I've read/seen this story - or versions of it - before. Still, an interesting tale that makes you want to see what happens next. Homage to HG Wells.

Aka S.J. Morden
Dr. Simon Morden, B.Sc. (Hons., Sheffield) Ph.D (Newcastle) is a bona fide rocket scientist, having degrees in geology and planetary geophysics. Unfortunately, that sort of thing doesn’t exactly prepare a person for the big wide world of work: he’s been a school caretaker, admin assistant, and PA to a financial advisor. He’s now employed as a part-time teaching assistant at a Gatesh
