Dark Spaces: Short Stories Reviews
Considering that the 1rst edition of this book had been on my TBR list for over two years, this joins the ranks of those books that I regret not reading earlier. It was clever, dark, funny, and enjoyable in the best way. I liked all of the stories, but my favorite would have to be "Suitable For Framing." This was both a thought provoking discourse on what art is, and an enthralling tale. The author states in the introduction, "How much you enjoy this story perhaps says something about what kind of fan you are." I could not agree more. I will definitely be reading Hatton's full length book "Dead Size" soon.
A better, fancier, cooler book than its predecessor (by 3 stories and some editing and other trickery that us author-types use to cause trouble).My original review for White Spaces still stands, even with the lights turned out: An enjoyable collection of short fiction. I left the title story for last, and was not disapointed by its epic scope and range (although it did get a little wordy in parts... ;)
Why do they allow authors to rate their own books? It’s like asking parents if they think their baby is cute. Yeah, I think my writing is adorable, if you like freaky-looking babies.
This book was enjoyable to read. With 3 stories it has something to interest many. It provides a good reading experience.
Okay one of the stories was a little too weird for me. Otherwise I loved it.
