SUPERSTITION

Looking for Mystery?

By G.S. Williams, editor, author of No Man An Island

Jul 25, 2008: The premise of the story, an occult investigator, leaves a lot of room for plotlines – anything magic/folklore/superstition/voodoo etc. could eventually be used for an episode.

The writing style is crisp and clean, very much reflecting the professionalism of the protagonist, Dashiell Aldridge. Each chapter is well-written and interesting. Given its design and the talent at work, Dash’s adventures could go on endlessly without ever really running out of possibilities.

If I have any complaint about the story, it would be that (in the early going) the author had yet to master episode placement. The plot would occasionally slow its pace down with several chapters in a row being expository or descriptive, with little dialogue or action. There is more balance to the serial as it progresses, proving we have a hard-working writer who learns from experience.

Which readers can only benefit from.
