- Concepts: The *ideas* for Erik's stories are interesting, and some downright creepy. He takes the modern and does his best to twist it into something that will make us wish we hadn't dared open these pages.
- Unfiltered: Erik is unfiltered, which, in my opinion, is a big plus. He will offend the sensibilities of others, he will make you cringe, he will make you gasp. And when you write horror, that's *exactly* what you need. This guy doesn't pull his punches.
The Not So Good:
- Execution: Yes, Erik's concepts are indeed interesting. It's his execution I take issue with. Quite simply, it needs work. He follows plot structure and it's not repetitive or sloppy. It's just not scary. Something isn't scary simply because you say it is. It's scary because you convince us. If you go in thinking that the things Erik writes about are absolutely terrifying, then you will be terrified. However, he does very little work to convince us of how scary these things are. He describes circumstances as if it was a documentary, rather than telling stories.
- Unfiltered: It's just a little much at times, honestly. Graphic is great, and this is me being a little picky. I'm rarely repulsed by anything, and yet Erik found a way. In some twisted sense, that's actually a good thing. But sometimes enough is enough.
Overall, I applaud Erik for writing, pursuing and improving his craft, and putting it all out there. I respect and admire that, I and I really hope he polishes his writing a little bit, because there's a *lot* of potential here. I just feel it's hidden beneath a dry writing style, and a nigh painful bluntness of approach. If you have an evening and a couple books, show the author some love, but I wouldn't expect to finish and be petrified.
