The post-apocalyptic genre is probably my favorite type of books to read and this story based on Reho's adventures in Red Denver is a tantalizing glimpse into the full story of the Hegemon Wars that will be coming (hopefully) soon.

I am looking forward to reading the book and finding out more about Reho's backstory. I also want to find out more about this world of ours that author Denham has demolished and then re-created. I do wish there wasn't such a gap between when this story was published and when the full book is to come out (supposedly to be July 2014 at this time).

Louisiana author D. L. Denham comes to his debut novel well prepared. He has degrees from Southeastern Louisiana University including a Masters Degree in History, he teaches and he writes. He is a talent developing and a talent to watch.

Denham opens his short story with extraordinary atmosphere. The year is 2083, the place is a prison holding cell where we meet Reho, our main character, who has been captured and accused of murder of one of the subordinates of Soapy, a crime boss and the chief of racing (Reho is not under Soapy's control and has been the consistent winner of races). Raging, Reho is pacified by an old man in the same cell who urges Reho to gain control of his anger management. In a few short pages we traverse the world of crime, heinous fights to the death, the introduction of beasts, a proposed fight for his new friend and mentor etc.

Denham's writing style is raw and cannot really be adequately judged on the basis of a short story. But he writes with conviction and infuses the words with the right tenor to make them credible in an incredible situation/fantasy. He is well worth watching. Grady Harp, June 14

I was reminded of the Fallout and Borderlands series. I'm not really into post-apocalyptic stuff, but I know what I like to read, and I enjoyed "Red Denver." It's a well-written short story that works well on its own as well as an introduction to a larger story.

Post apocalyptic novels (with a focus on sci-fi) will always be a favorite of mine, because it allows both futuristic technology, but with a feel of horror and excitement that only comes when society is crumbling. The world building included in this short story delivers on both, so far, and I'm looking forward to what the first actual installment brings.

The second part of the short story that has me looking forward to the first novel is the protagonist. I am also a huge fan of characters that are highly capable, like Reho, from this story. I don't like the every-man protagonists popular in post apocalyptic settings, because the only reasons those types of characters stay alive are gimmicks or tropes like plot armor. On the other hand, it makes sense that a character like Reho would survive, because, frankly, he's bad ass.

I'm giving this story a four star rating because, while there were some great parts, certain things were a bit of a letdown. I wasn't exactly sure what Reho's former girlfriend's stance was on him fighting for his life and I thought the warbeast was pretty lame. I mean, I know Reho is super awesome, but the Hegemon should have just stuck with whatever conventional weaponry they use instead of creating genetically modified life. Because Reho just killed it with a knife. It sounds like it would die just as easily to normal guns as, say, a tiger or lion would. Anyway, I spent a disproportional amount of time on that complain. There were so many more good things than bad things in the short story.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of Reho and the post apocalyptic world outside of Red Denver. The story looks like it has a ton of potential.

Red Denver by D.L. Denham

I liked this book. The whole time I was reading, I thought back on the Star Wars scene with the racing machines, and also a bit of Mad Max.

Mr. Denham has written a prequel before the story, a bit unusual but it works. The story takes place in a futuristic world with ruthless men who live on the edge of society. Roho, is a bad-boy hero who races Oldworld Gasolines, and fights to make points. He never loses and makes a powerful enemy in Soapy. Roho is considered dangerous and Soapy deals with him in a manner as old as time.

I am anxious to see more of Roho; I related with his character, a man living in an impossible world, doing the best he can. I would recommend Red Denver to readers who like futuristic worlds and Science Fiction.

I was gifted this eBook in return for an honest review.

This short-story served as a great introduction to the post-apocalyptic world of Red Denver and I'm eagerly anticipating the upcoming novel. I love The Road Warrior and this story/world combines the best elements of that movie with some new twists (aliens, engineered mutants, etc.) The world feel gritty, dusty, lived in and the story potential seems limitless. Great, quick read.

As angst sweeps our society, many stories naturally find their home in post apocalyptic worlds. Red Denver : A Post Apocalyptic Short Story is essentially cast that way but it delivers entertainment at a deeper more fast paced and ultimately fulfilling level: the level of an individuals triumph in a chaotic system. Correctly accused of killing a man from Soapy Enterprises and Exchange, Reho stands trial and sentenced to fight to the death gladiator style with a genetically designed war beast. Reho battles are non-stop from the beginning to the end. This story is a thrill ride that keeps the reader turning pages. Reho is a vividly drawn character in radiation blasted world. Reho’s personality is so genuine you will be left holding your breath. Goons and demons pull you right into the story. Beautifully constructed short, which is richly satisfying and well imagined. Readers are going to want more from this author.
