'Captivating characters and a cleverly designed, fantastical plot. A highly recommended set of shorts.'
The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
Star Rating: ★★★★★
After glancing at the cover for this book and skimming the blurb, I decided this is going to be very dark, very gritty, and very fantastical. And I wasn't far wrong. Written by the talented Konn Lavery, it follows the Nameless One who is attempting to understand the deaths of 22 souls. What follows is a cleverly plotted story - divided up into 22 individual shorts - populated with intriguing, often charismatic characters who all seem to be in a different state of flux.
In terms of writing style, this is where the author truly excels. Not only is the pacing excellent, there's also a good balance between powerful descriptive prose and realistic, well-written dialogue. This is a very atmospheric story. The author knows his setting - the mysterious Midway - and wants the reader, like the characters, to be immersed in it.
This set of shorts is not a simple read; the reader will have to work hard to keep up with what's going on, why it's going on, and even where it's happening. But it's intriguing stuff. It'll hook you in. And I suspect, like me, you will end up determined to find the answers the Nameless One is looking for.
Who is the book for? Well, if you enjoy the later Clive Cussler novels full of lazy predictability, this book is not for you. But if you don't mind working a little, if you enjoy being intrigued, of never knowing what will happen next but really, really wanting to know, this set of shorts will be right up your street.

The last Canadian book I read was the short story collection by @writewatson.
It's humorous, intense, and fun.
Low-Level Buzz was my personal favourite for its mix of grit and cults. In the collection, you will find a wide range of themes, action, fantasy, scifi, some horrors, lightheartedness, and excitement in each story.
Episode 02 of Fire, Pain, & Ruin: a @rutherford.manor novel is out!
Link in bio.
Nox is eager to finalize the government contract and provide for the Rutherford Manor family. The deal would also allow him to continue to feed his dark desires of experimentation. Billy is fully supportive. Spaulding, on the other hand, is not. He wishes for a simple life for his two newborn daughters while having conflicting desires for his old life.

We're 10 days away from the release of my short story collection (Feb 18)
So, enjoy the complimentary album Frequencies of the Macrocosm in the meantime!
The album roots from improv jam sessions played over recorded readings of each short story. They have been cleaned up, trimmed, and modified to create one cohesive LP. The tracks are themed around each story, ranging in mood, instruments, and emotion and are intended to be listened to while reading any book you please.
