3.5 stars.

Mark Cassell has created his own mythos in the shadow fabric. This collection of flash fiction and short stories stems from the mythos. Mark is clearly a talented writer. He wears his influences proudly and the stories here are well written and well edited. The first half of the book was particularly enjoyable with stories of creeping shadows, demons and witches brought to life with Cassells's descriptive words. Why only 3.5 stars? My issue with the collection was with the over relianc

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Mark Cassel’s novel The Shadow Fabric, it was pretty much a done deal that I was going to pick up Sinister Stitches; a collection of short stories in The Shadow Fabric Mythos.

Now initially I did think that ‘mythos’ was too grand a word for something that was essentially one novel and a collection of short stories that have been printed online or in other short story collections; however, once I started reading the book it all made sense and I realised that myth

Welcome back to the Shadow Fabric mythos. There is no way to make this review reflect the incredible genius of this collection without making the review predominantly personal. The quality of this collection defies regular review methods. So, let us begin.

As stated in the synopsis, Sinister Stitches is a comprehensive elaboration on the Shadow Fabric mythos. The expertly written stories gruesomely expound on the histories and happenings that take place in the novels The Shadow Fabric and Hell Ca

I was taken by the novel, The Shadow Fabric, some time ago, and to be honest it never really left me, so I was keen to delve into more darkness and experience some more. My favourites in this collection were:

The Artist & The Crone - a return to the MC in the novel, with a superb ending;
Meeting Mum - a whole different way of introducing your girlfriend to your mum;
Disturbed - a tale which gave the potential for more depth and back story to the Shadow Fabric.

Each story was unique in their creep factor. Just don't read before you go to sleep, unless you want some weird dreams. Recommended. ...more

After reading The Shadow Fabric which was brilliant I just had to read Sinister Stitches and I was not at all disappointed! The 12 short stories were equally as good and very well written.
Mark Cassell is a very talented writer that he can draw you into all his stories,I cannot wait to read more of his work.
