I don’t usually read speculative fiction but I’m glad that I downloaded Not Before Bed, which is a collection of short stories from the twisted mind of Craig Hallam!
This is the second e-book that I downloaded when I bought my Kindle and there are plenty of great stories to entertain you on a cold, dark night. I enjoyed reading each and every one of them, though my favourites are Laughter on the Landing, Sarah and the Monster, Lovecraft and Albert. I like it when you can read a collection of short stories and have so many good ones to try to pick the best from.
Once I had started each story I had to read to the end. One of the longest stories in the collection is – Albert. I thought it was an excellent narrative tale that draws you into his world. Craig’s writing brings each story to life and I have to give this book the 5★ rating.
Well done, Craig. I look forward to reading new stories and, hopefully, your debut novel.
Pete, you make me blush! Thanks for a belting review. When I got back off my hols it was the best thing waiting on my virtual doorstep. Hope the editing is going well. Looking forward to reading it!
You’re welcome. I enjoyed reading them.
I’m still editing. Slowly!
Great title. Pete. thanks for the follow on Twitter and inviting me to check out your blog.
This is a fantastic review – we’ve tried as much as possible to promote it via social media. I don’t suppose you fancy being a part of the blog tour for Greaveburn….?
Let me know what you want. I’ve already asked Craig for a couple of posts to help promote Greaveburn and I’m happy to help in any way I can.
Whether you would liek to interview Craig or write a review of Greaveburn it’s up to you. If you wish to write a review let me know and I can get you an eboook
Have you and Craig sorted something out now then Pete?
Sorry. Only just realised I never responded to your last comment. I will sort something out with Craig.
