3.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing tale...but a few concerns 3 1/2 Stars February 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Blood Spatter -- A Short Story" is a short horror by author Guy James. This is a Kindle e-book that was a 61 Kb download (approx 10 pages) and was free at the time of writing this review.

SPOILERS throughout...

General theme...
Logan Jennings is a serial killer who uses his incredible gory crime scenes as a photo-op for his fairly success business of providing Cover Art for some about to be published horror books. However, it appears that most of the 'inspiration' for the creativity is not really his own, rather the skill in taking these unusually 'stunning' pictures comes from an old demon's mask he had in college...a mask tainted with some evil magic.

A few thoughts...some pros and cons

1.) an unusual plot that was original and had definitive possibilities for an intriguing horror tale.

2.) some use of repetitive words ('crispy' comes to mind) and some dialogue seems contrived and forced. The conversation between with his daughter and wife reminded me of a talk between friends rather than family.

3.) the time sequencing used within the story seemed odd...within a space of nine minutes, Logan has called Detective Labrusca, then goes and hacks up his victim, and finally the detective arrives at the scene of the crime...all in 9 Minutes!!!

3.) I could not quite figure out what really happened to Detective Labrusca.

4.) the last paragraph...a comment from the Demon's mask. Was this the end or just the beginning of a new series of killings?

5.) Cover Art...bland and unappealing. Given the nature of the subject matter, one would have expected something a little more imaginative.

3.0 out of 5 stars This one is a middle of the road read. October 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very short story which is well executed but a bit predictable with a premise I found to be a rehash of similar story lines. I didn't love it and I didn't hate it, hence my title. Read it and fomulate your own opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars And?... February 10, 2012
By Angie
Format:Kindle Edition
This story could have been better had there been more details about the characters. There really wasn't much to the story, it seemed pointless. It's a good thing its free.

By the time I got to the end I hadn't a clue what was going on. The book made absolutely no sense. I would not recommend it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing August 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While reading Blood Spatter I wasn't sure what the whole point of it was, and upon finishing it, I'm not even sure what the plot was supposed to be. I have no idea what happened with the policeman or why when we first encounter him, he was quoting Lethal Weapon lines. Blood Spatter doesn't go into enough detail when the murders are happening and yet is over descriptive when they guy is making breakfast with his family. What as a reader I was supposed to take away from this I'll never know. There's plenty of serial killer, horror or whatever genre this was supposed to be under short stories out there as free or cheap Kindle downloads. Get one of those instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blood splatter August 17, 2014
By Jeffrey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was an ok story. I assume this man was a a psycho with O C D. I liked how he was family oriented and normal with his wife and kid. He sure was a risk taker. I would have liked to have known how he selected his victims and what approach he used to lure them. I would also have liked a more detailed account of the actual murders and the poses he put them in. If you like a not to graphic murder story then, this one is for you.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well...??????? October 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading this story is like someone telling you a lengthy joke and then forgetting the punch line. You don't know about the character and what made him the way he is, how/why he chooses his victims. All we seem to have here is the skeleton of the story, not the meat (so to speak). I would love for Mr. James to make a novel out of this short story. It could certainly be worth reading then. I felt like he started writing, got distracted and forgot the story and then tacked on the ending. A lot was missing from what could have been a terriffic hair raiser.

Maybe next time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very short short
Not many details about the main character with the character flaw. Why did the Detective pass out? Is this a prelude for more? Free isn't always a good thing.
