If it wasn't, I should probably seek professional help. Recommended for fans of revenge stories! ...more
Sissy is missing and Iverson intends to find out the whole truth about what really happened to his girlfriend....and so he does.

The story itself is very straight forward: following the supposed suicide of his girlfriend in police custody, a young man rounds up his brothers and best friend, intent on obtaining revenge for his girlfriend and bringing a small town to its very knees. Yet Light is such a skilled author, he paints a very vivid picture as th ...more
I think one of the best parts of the story is the opening. I've lived in towns like Barkersville, and Light's descriptions b ...more
Details are essential in short stories, and Evans Light dishes out just the right touches to make a story real. It lets us know exactly what we are working with . . . . or maybe not. Dark, gory, with a fantastic ending. ...more
A quick, hard-hitting read. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended~ ...more
To say that I was impressed by the book is an extreme understatement. He has such a way with words and descriptions - as if you can close your eyes and see the setting and characters right there in your mind. The ...more
Non-stop acton sequences, briskly paced this is a tale of one man possessed with an overwhelming desire for vengeance, misguided as it may be.
Set the volume to "overkill".
If you're disturbed by the violence in a typical Mickey Spillane "Mike Hammer" novel, this short tale might just curdle your egg-nog.
Impressive writer of intense action sequences.
Recommended for any classic pulp fiction fan ...more
For a lot of people 3 Stars is not a good rating and there are times when it's that for me, but sometimes when I rate a book 3 Stars I'm just saying the book wasn't for me. That's what I'm saying here. I generally don't read horror and I tend to avoid violence...this book has both. It's incredibly short, just 28 pages but there is a lot of carnage in those pages. People who en ...more
Iverson & friends, you sick bastards! Deputy Frank - oh that made me cringe, little girls crying when they left the study, and Annie - if this would have been a movie, I would have clamped my eyes closed until the scene was over.
The story was horrifying, sick, and twisted. Anyone who enjoys blood ...more
I'm kind of disturbed that I enjoyed this as much as I did, and I will be keeping an eye out for this author's other works. ...more
What a GREAT short story by Evans. I'm never disappointed in his works. He's able to immerse you into the story with his descriptive writing and cree ...more
I slept on Light's work for awhile, no reason just keep picking up More titles to add to my stack of books to read and never know when to begin.
I have more of Light's work on my kindle and will be getting to it real soon. A huge five star for this short story. ...more
Ivy and his two younger brothers, along with some buddies are going to mete out their own brand of small town, vigilante justice.
Evans claims stories of the “weird tales’ variety are his favorite to write and he just proved it again. I can’t begin to imagine this happening in real life. Maybe it has, but it would’ve been hard to miss the headlines.
You don’t get to know Sissy. ...more
Recently a friend recommend this story to me. I decided to read it this afternoon.
The story takes place in a small southern town. A group of young men have decided there is only one way to punish those who have wronged a friend of theirs.
The story had the flavor of an old Twilight Zone with an underlying morality not unlike The Oxbox Incident by Walter Van Tilburg Clark. I found out a lot about this group of young men/boys from the flas ...more
DAMN! That was some crazy, and twisted stuff. I knew things were not as cut and dry, when our main character meets Sissy for the first time. How completely twisted. Loved it.
My first Evans Light, and not certainly my last. Bring them on! :)
Evans lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, surrounded by thousands of vintage horror paperbacks. He ...more
