I have been a huge fan of Brian's since first finding a used copy of The Rising in a local book store. This was another great story written by one of today's best!
A man wakes up and discovers that he is all alone. What happened to his family and neighbors? What is the mysterious fog that surrounds the neighborhood? You will have to give this a read to find the answer to those questions.
Highly recommend this title!!

I've been a Keene fan for years, and while this story was different from most everything he writes I enjoyed the heck out of it. I did know early into it what was going on, but it didn't lessen the reading of it. Lovely ending. Yep, I'd recommend this story and author.

Loved this book! I had no idea what to expect and liked the pace and where it ended up. Just discovering this author, and based on how good this book was, I already bought a few other books by this author!!! Can't wait to read them!

I like Mr. Keene. In my opinion he is a good writer, however, I feel when it comes to his short fiction it is just average. Alone is no different.

Alone tells the story of a man named Dan. One day he wakes up to everyone gone. His husband, their daughter, the neighbors, everyone. Also, a mysterious fog surrounds his and a few other houses. Dan must figure out how he ended up in this strange new, but familiar world and why.

From the beginning I knew the twist. I had hoped I was wrong but no luck. However, that doesn't make it a bad story. Just average. Other than the twist the only other problem I had was with Dan's interaction with the environment around him, mostly with the pen, considering how other items act in his world.

In the end, just average.

This was a great short piece. My first read from Keene, but certainly not the last. To be fair, I did figure out the twist pretty early, but the skill with which it was written kept pulling me along.

I especially liked the little extra at the end, explaining where the story came from. Those little insights into the writing process I always find so interesting.

Also, chapter 4. Chapter 4 hit like a ton of bricks.

When I picked this up, I had no idea what sort of story I was in for. Keene captures the agony of solitude perfectly and does it in a twisted, unique, poignant way that I totally didn't see coming. Great story.

Great start, but after a while it slowed down and became somewhat repetitive. Could probably have been a bit shorter, which would have made the overall experience better. Overall, a good read. I'll definitely read more of Brian's stories.

I stopped reading Keene's writing in 2008 as he seemed to be interested only in writing in writing tributes to earlier horror writers and a lot of his work felt bloated, like he was trying to reach a certain word count. Since I was going to be in the hospital for a few days I thought I'd give entombed a try, but saw this on Amazon and since it was a tenth of the price and too short to have filler gravitated hear. Loved the plot and even though I got where it was going fairly early on it didn't really matter because the pacing and general direction of the story were good. If you're looking for something to keep you entertained for a couple hours this is def a good read.
