While You Are Sleeping by Paul Craig

Terry Pratchett meets J.K. Rowling and all hell breaks loose. Curse the pair of them. 

Boy meets elf. Elf scares boy. Elf “kidnaps” boy. Boy, are they in trouble!

Take a ride through a world you never knew existed in a story chock full of talking animals, cackling witch taxi drivers, angels, demons and shadowy figures, and a weird magical bracelet that in the wrong hands might just mean the end of the world!

Editor’s First Impression

By Linda Schoales, editor

Nov 12, 2009: Terry Pratchett meets J.K. Rowling is a pretty tall order but the writing in the first chapter looks pretty solid. Probably worth a second look if you like British fantasy/humour.

Not quite Pratchett, but then again, who is?

By DevinO, member

Nov 13, 2009: The Cons:

  • Page design needs work. The font is small, although most browsers will let you change this yourself. It’s just annoying to have to do. I’d also rather not have to gloss over the character bios in the left-hand column on every page; they just don’t seem important to have there. The link for the next page is also very small and took a confused moment to find.

  • The writing is reasonably solid, but could use some editing. There are more careless errors than I expect, which makes me think posts might only get a once through by the author before posting.

The Pros:

  • Tongue-in-cheek modern fantasy. Much closer in style to Pratchett than Rowling.

  • Paul Craig is seriously prolific. If he’s writing this as he goes, I am extremely impressed.
