The Dark Verse, Vol. 1: From the Passages of Revenants [Hardcover]
The book that is
I love the stories contained within this tome! The book itself is well made and looks stunning! Definitely a must buy for any fan of the macabre!
I enjoyed these dark stories, appreciated the unique writing style. Each chapter was engrossing because it wasn't anything like the others. Very entertaining and great for "break" reading at different times.
This is an interesting collection of short stories that were originally told through a podcast by the author. They are weird, blizzard, mind provoking and just plain interesting. But they can be confusing and some feel incomplete. Still, a decent collection of stories that will have you thinking. None are scary to me, but that is to be expected as I have never been scared by reading a book.
An impressive debut collection from author and podcaster M. Amanuensis Sharkchild. These are tales of twisted logic, ventures into strange realms, and encounters with incomprehensible entities. There is an impressive range of ideas and some genuine imagination on display here. The prose varies a little in quality, but colorful vocabulary and evocative imagery make up for some of the instances of odd phrasing. I would definitely recommend this book to readers of dark fantasy, horror, and weird fiction.
