There have been several new cool reviews of my short story “Clouds” in the intelligent but creepy “Horror Without Victims” anthology.
Here’s one in the latest issue of Black Static magazine. Apparently, it’s solipsistic. Which I think is a good thing.
Clouds – Eric Ian Steele
“He had scared himself with his crazy imagination. He hadn’t looked at clouds like that since he was a child.”
…routine-work ravaged Evan faces a horrifically accretive onset of erasure, brilliantly conveyed. But it is a situation potentially providing a tabula rasa more fulfilling than fullness… It reminds me of failing to notice things in life as one grows beyond childhood and I once used to watch clouds, imagining them, as I did, in a race they had with each other and still have … towards their eventual death or mine? I rarely noticed them in later years…until reading this inspiring story.
If you haven’t bought your copy yet, you’re missing out. This is a unique anthology with some quite memorable stories, including of course one by yours truly (shameless plug). What’s not to like?
