In “The Voice of Anton Bouchard” Porter has created an elegantly disturbing character whose unhinged justification for killing is exposed in unrelenting and horrifying detail. “After Armageddon” provides a nauseating yet thought-provoking prophesy of the utter devastation of humanity and posits the question: should we abandon all religious ideology to prevent such a holocaust in the future - if there IS a future?
From the mutated, cannibalistic species of “Toxic Bitch” to androids and aliens, Porter provides conversations on life’s most vexing ethical and moral questions. Yet not all of the stories are hair-raising and spine-chilling. Some are vignettes of irony, sweet revenge, or as in “The Significance of Cherries” a good old satisfying murder mystery a la Agatha Christie.
As an added bonus, award-winning horror author Carole Gill provides the macabre “Raised,” a fitting end to this anthology. Whatever your tastes you’ll find something to quench your thirst for intriguing storytelling at its best.
At the back of the book is a preview of Under Mexican Skies. Now I’ll have to add this one to my TBR list. Just enough of a teaser to get me interested.
There’s also a story by guest author Carole Gill, entitled Raised,. If you've yet to read her stories, you must give them a try, as she’s another gifted writer.
If you like odd and unusual, plus short stories, this book is for you. I give it 4 feathers.
Okay, you say, why five stars? Well the first part of my response is the writing, the content, the characters, the tales, the usage of language, the means of creating a scene or scenario, all the tricks that writers use are so well done in these stories that they deserve five stars. The second part of my response is simply that the stories are great.
I will tell you a little of three of the many stories in the book. Toxic Bitch is the first I mention. If this one doesn't scare the living hell out of you then you are the bravest person alive. The second story I will mention is one written in substantial part about the author himself and his joyful episodes of swimming with dolphins. God how I envy him doing that and wish that I could do it as well. The third is a mystery story called The Significance of Cherries. Have you ever owned a dog that took you to see something, was insistent that you needed to come with him or her to a spot, or responded to another person positively or negatively in a very surprising fashion. If so you will get this story and love it.
Brian L. Porter is an excellent writer. His short stories are fleshed out enough even though relatively short, to be believable, to be enjoyable and to merit five stars. Thanks Harry. You have done it for me again. Very enjoyable reading.
After Armageddon is just one of the short stories included in this book but I must say that due to the world as it is today it was one that hit home most. It scared the heck out of me because it is so possibly true. So if you don't read any of the other stories within this book's pages, make sure you read the 2nd story in the book titled After Armageddon.
The other stories within this book are at times dark as well as entertaining. I found that I had to read at least one each night and when time permitted two. The story 'The Devil You Know' takes place in Mexico after the death of a priest. It will take you into the depths of crime as well as archaeological events in history. You will follow a young lady as she is kidnapped where the kidnapper finds out he made a really big mistake. And then there is the story of a woman and her husband as they attend the 'festival'. Will they enjoy it or will they find themselves lost forever? You'll also go back in time to the year 1816 where you'll meet James who loves dead things.
So, if you enjoy a good scary story, this book is for you but be careful when you read them at night or you might be like me... hearing noises that I know aren't there.
