5.0 out of 5 stars Identity Thief January 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You thought it was bad when some jerk stole your Credit Card number. In this short story(3-5 thousand words) Milo shows it can be worse. The main character gets a email from a old girl friend and that creates some longing for his past life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Literary Horror February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great short story, and 99 cents well spent (even better than a cup of coffee, and if you knew me, you'd know just how much that really means).

Identity Thief places the subtle mid-ground between horror and literature, delivering on a solid plot while never neglecting the thematic undertones. Little things jumped out at me on my first read, like the narrator referring to himself of "unreliable" (a nod to Poe?). Then of course the larger issue of what makes a person an "identity thief," which I'll say no more about as to not ruin anything.

Wonderful short story, and highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Identity Thief March 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Identity Thief is a very disturbing look into the mind of a serial killer and identity thief. He keeps his victims' faces in his closet, oiled and supple for use, to wear to cover his own 'inadequacies'. He not only wears their faces, but their lives as well. Very unsettling and intimately creepy, Identity Thief is a short story which packs a lot of punch!

5.0 out of 5 stars An irresistible glimpse inside a disturbed mind January 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Identity Thief" by Milo James Fowler is a short horror story that puts you squarely in the viewpoint of a disturbed individual. I think where Fowler is most successful is in getting the reader to sympathize with the narrator's reasoning for the unsavory acts he commits. I enjoyed this self-contained tale about a man who is sort of the horror version of a jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none. Definitely worth checking out.
