Living Stone is quite short, so a fast read. That said, it's quite good. The writing is excellent. It's a fresh idea that Mr. Cox handled well. I liked the reference to the Old Herne legend, putting a new twist on that.

a very interesting read. like other reviewers, the main flaw here is length, as this really seems to be novel material, it seems as if William S Burroughs came by and cut every other chapter out ;)

worth a read for sure though.

This is a really good novella that should be worked into a novel - or perhaps more stories need to be written about Old Herne and/or Oscar's lives. There's definitely more dark corners to probe!

I know Edward's work and I know Sam's Dot quality, so this is definitely a book I need to check out.

A palpable evocation of evil. Works as a novelette, but perhaps a bit sketchy in places. Perhaps would be even more successful as a novel.
