Wahl does a wonderful job of building up the tension to almost unbearable ...
Two darkly bleak tales, both based in otherworldly settings.
"Purple Haze" by MF Wahl is the story of the aftermath of a crash landing on an alien world, in which we learn that danger can lurk within the mostmundane. Wahl does a wonderful job of building up the tension to almostunbearable levels, with a payoff that'll have you wincing as much asit'll leave you uneasy. Terrifying stuff.
"Run for the Flame" byA.J. Brown tells the tale of an endurance test to end all endurancetests,one that could determine the fate of a civilisation. Again,masterful use of tension with - if you'll excuse the pun - a wonderfulpacing that will leave you exhilarated and exhausted. And that finalparagraph -Wow.
Two top-notch tales from two writers at the very, very top of their game, and for a bargain price. Thoroughly recommended.

That was...disturbing. But in a good way.
It's good when a writer can make you see and feel the words they write. Andwhen you have two of these writers in the one offering, it's twice asgood. It's gooderer.
Both stories are creative, fast paced, andhave elements of sci-fi and thriller chills. And though they aredifferent tales being told, the feel of each is similar andcomplimentary.
All in all, a twisted, sci-fi delight.

Well worth the read!
This is a great read. Both stories, though similar in tone, take the readerin completely different directions. Both authors do a fantastic job ofdrawing you in from the very beginning and will have you hanging onuntil the very end. And what endings they have. I don't want to spoil it for you, but suffice to say you will be glad you read them. Two authors at their most terrifying, twisted and well written best. Do yourself afavor and get this one.
Brilliant like a duel with words

I have a feeling that depending on which story you read first may just be the story you like best. (Kind of like when Stephen King released 'Desperation' right along side Bachman's 'The Regulators')
My version, 'The End is All We See' starts off with Wahl's story "Purple Haze". The story is well written and then, out of nowhere, it takes a totally unexpected turn. Definitely a story that will stick with you, long after you have finished reading it!
After "Purple Haze" is A. J. Brown's "Run for the Flame". This is a unique story that will have you invested in the survival of the characters!
Both stories are about the struggle to survive circumstances beyond one's control. I will definitely be checking out more from both of these authors.
Both writers offer focused and concise writing styles, cut to the bone, every word contributing to the stories’ overall mood/effect. A clear sense of place is generated, planting the reader in two fully fleshed and vastly different settings. In the case of these stories, setting does more to achieve mood than the characters do. It is true that works of horror in particular are more distinguished by their settings than works of any other genre. Both the stories present the reader with isolated, constrained settings in which the characters find themselves helpless before the hostile elements.
In M.F. Wahl’s story “Purple Haze,” much in the sci-fi tradition of Ray Bradbury, the threat is revealed gradually – the characters coming to the realization of their predicament too late. A.J. Brown’s story “Run For the Flame,” on the other hand (and much in the manner of one of the writer’s admitted influences – Stephen King’s novel The Long Walk), presents the dire circumstances of the situation within the opening pages, assaulting the reader. Both approaches are executed effectively in their own right.
The coupling of these stories in one book is appropriate in regard to their nature, and in truth they complement each other. M.F. Wahl and A.J. Brown can be proud of this effort, and they are most certainly two writers to keep an eye out for in the future.
The first story is Purple Haze by M.F. Wahl. It follows a band of survivors who left Earth in a spaceship in order to find another Earth like planet to live on. The ship crash lands on a beautiful looking planet but there are only three survivors. The crew realizes their situation is bleak and things get worse as they explore outside the ship and discover something in the air is making them want to harm themselves and each other. Purple Haze becomes a blood bath with a shocking ending. M.F. Wahl uses vivid imagery to describe her characters situation and the planet they are exploring. What happens to the explorers is described so well that its enough to make you thankful for the air you breathe.
The next story is Run For The Flame by A.J. Brown. It starts simply enough with a bunch of teenagers behind a protective wall, about to race up a snow covered hill. There is more here than meets the eye though, they are living through an ice age and the wall they live behind is breaking down, their only hope is in a tower on top of the hill. The teenagers have a short period of time to retrieve a flame in the tower before they freeze to death. Problem is nobody has ever survived the run and without the flame the community will die. This was an excellent story, the ending was a little confusing but I love all the characters. They are in a race against time, facing an impossible task but each one has a different emotional reaction to the situation. You feel for all of them and watching them go through what they do is excruciating.
What both of these stories have in common is a fresh spin on an old idea, they both take place after a catastrophic event and what transpires next is something that I haven’t seen in Science fiction or horror. Both authors tell an excellent story and the length of each one can be described as perfect. They’re short but pack a punch that you might not recover from. To say their experiment worked is an understatement and I hope this isn’t the last collaboration between these authors.
