Moments of Darkness is a collection of 14 short stories - some flash fiction, some a little longer, but all of them a quick delve into different worlds.
I love the impish fun of Careful Study, with a grumpy alien with a grumbling stomach landing on a new planet. I really like the scritch scratch at your brain that is the insidious madness of Super Moon, with the protagonist becoming obsessed by lunar madness. The dark paranormal tale of With All My Love would fit neatly on a series of The Twilight Zone.
Some of the stories are little more than nuggets, vignettes with a twist, but that's flash fiction - I swear, a form I can never master myself, but I respect those who can be more succinct. As ever with a collection, there will be stories you favour over others, but Jason Nugent has a voice worth listening to.
Jason J. Nugent’s creative mind spins dark tales that churn and chill, with splashes of bloody red and hot, fiery red. You’ll be turning the pages to unexpected twists and endings.
Love, goodness, duty, honor, truth, and life shine among moments of darkness, evil, violence, betrayal, revenge, and death…giving pause for reflection of our own humanity, souls and existence.
I very much enjoyed reading this collection. The collection starts with Cat Got Your Tongue? I found this story to be highly entertaining, ending with a nice twist I wasn’t expecting. The collection ends with The Arc Device, a story that tickles the ‘time-travelers’ fancy, without going too deep to cause confusion. These two stories are two of my favorites in a collection of fourteen shorts.
Now I can’t honestly say I liked them all, but everyone likes something different. Such is the way of collections. That being said, I would highly recommend this collection to anyone that likes Fantasy, Science Fiction and maybe even Horror. The stories will appeal to lovers of all these genre, and maybe even others.
