I don’t usually read speculative fiction but I’m glad that I downloaded Not Before Bed. This is a collection of short stories from the fabulously twisted mind of Craig Hallam!
There are plenty of great stories to entertain you on a cold, dark night. I enjoyed reading each and every one of them, though my favourites are Laughter on the Landing, Sarah and the Monster, Lovecraft and Albert. I like it when you can read a collection of short stories and have so many good ones to try to pick the best from.
Once I had started each story I had to read to the end. One of the longest stories in the collection is – Albert. I thought it was an excellent narrative tale that draws you into his world. Craig’s writing brings each story to life.
Well done, Craig. I look forward to reading new stories and your debut novel.
