Reactions and Reviews

An impressive novella. Well illustrated. The story captures you from the beginning. A perfect spooky story to read on a dark stormy night, or Halloween. The characters are realistic and well drawn. The plot is even and interesting. Definitely a keeper. Once I started reading, I didn't want to put the story down. The print is large enough to be easily readable. It has the perfect amount of white space to please the eye. I saw no typos and the story was edited very well. On a scale of one to ten, I give this zine a ten. [1]
