4.0 out of 5 stars "A Life for a Life" April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A comet has destroyed life as we know it. Chemicals are in the air and the search is on for undocumented people.

In the State of Bayou, Texas, a person in control realizes that not everyone can be saved.

Sometimes a life must be given in order for one to be saved..

Interesting short story!

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked it April 2, 2013

Some brutal review score for a "well written" book. I liked it, and I want to know more about this post apocalyptic world. It seems very gritty, dark, and grim. Just my kind of thing.

Regan Wolfrom has proven to be an accomplished author, both in developing a really good story and in character development.
He is an excellent author and I thoroughly enjoyed this book (Kindle). Therefore, I highly recommend this author and this is a great read. Look for his other works and you won't be disappointed.

This was a good story. Cruel, harsh and sad, but still a well written tale. I'll definitely be reading more from this author.

More About the Author

Regan Wolfrom (born at the tail end of the disco era) has come a long way from his 1986 debut novel Harry the Adventurous Hamster (currently out of print due to having never been published or completed). After a break from writing to attend puberty, and to eventually sell six packs of Molson Canadian to his misnamed crush, Moosehead Girl, Regan returned to the craft with reckless abandon and a gallon jug of iced tea with just a smattering of extremely cheap rum.

Regan is now the author of numerous short stories and an upcoming post-apocalyptic novel series with only one mention (so far) of zombie erections. Regan hopes to one day write a novel set on Mars while sitting in his boxer shorts on the actual Red Planet, and everything that comes before that is really just his way of saving up for the one-way trip.

Though Regan has been shafted by residency requirements in his pursuit of the MacArthur genius grant, his current fiction is considered to be of high caliber, reflecting a marked improvement in style and grammar from the aforementioned thing with the hamster. It also has far fewer graphic scenes of pound puppy plushes having sex in the back of a shoebox equipped with paper wheels.

What does Regan have to say about Regan?

"I recently passed up the chance to hassle Samuel L. Jackson."

"I've always wanted to change my name to something boring, like Hugh Howey."

"I know how to cook six things. None of them are oatmeal."

"I write stories that are weird, a little dark, and definitely inappropriate for my children. It could be tough to keep that going when they get to be as old and weird as I am today."

"Oh... and my dog is in love with me... like... in a disturbing way."

For a more in-depth tour of Regan's unresolved childhood issues, be sure to read one of his stories.
