it was amazing

Another fantastic read by Karl Drinkwater - why is he not on the best-seller list?
Although the novella only runs to 85 pages, it packs plenty in. There are hints of familiarity - a pinch of Dr Who's Cybermen, a dash of War of the Worlds and a sprinkling of The Human Centipede (maybe just a tiny sprinkle) all shaken, with a hero that has the diving skill of Tom Daley, stirred and poured out in the form of a delicious titbit. The author is skilled in accelerating the tension, cleverly using sentence shortening to to the extent I found I was nearly hyperventilating at one stage. There is also humour, much of it caused by wellies which had me, inappropriately, in a fit of giggles at one stage. I rather hope there is a sequel.
I cannot understand why the author has not yet found himself with a bestseller!
