From the Author
My obsession grew when I discovered the wonderful world of cosmic and weird horror fiction. I was drawn in by the likes of Lovecraft, Ligotti, and Barker. I found the concept of a mythos tantalizing, and the blending of philosophy and psychology into the horror genre only made things more enticing.
I longed to write horror that played upon the elements of existentialism, nihilism, and mental strife while tying it all together within the context of a mythos that provided endless possibilities.
The end result was Things Undone, the first of what I hope to be a sprawling and complex series of stories and novels that all come together within the Shattered God Mythos.
It was difficult - especially as a twenty-year-old attending college - but it was also perhaps the most satisfying experience of my life. With every passing day, I grew more excited at the prospect of my stories, and I still do. I've been gripped by horror ever since I could first read, and writing this book allowed me to contribute to the genre that has both terrified and comforted me for much of my life.
I wrote this book for myself, but I sincerely hope you enjoy it too. The only thing more satisfying than having completed this book is the thought that others might also enjoy it.
I hope to offer you the same delight I felt when first discovering the world of horror. I aspire to imbue you with the same dread and fascination conveyed by all things creepy and cosmic. And lastly, I aim to draw you into a world of terror and meaninglessness that will distract from this scary and confusing world of our own.

Here we have the remarkable work of pure genius -- I absolutely love the premise, so simple yet intricately complex, it weaves its thread around the reader and pulls them in completely. These stories are haunting and yet, I'm hooked. I can't wait to learn more about the Shattered God and what it hath wrought for the future yet to come. I'm an instant fan! I absolutely highly recommend diving into this series. I just know that someday I'll be able to say that I read all his work before everyone figured out he could rival the great H.P. (!!!) I'm on my way to tell everybody I know who loves horror and expert fiction. Here, you are delivered. A master in the making.
Presentation and first thoughts for Things Undone: A Collection of Horror Stories hits a grand slam for me. The paperback ( viewable with Amazon's preview ) hits an even better spot than the eBook because of the gothic type illustrative parts. I read the eBook, not the paperback.
Each story begins with a very nice composition and adds to the vibe of the book.
Overall this collection of short stories are diverse and colorful. I enjoyed reading the book, hence why I am writing this review at all. It amazes me the amount of talent in the wild, which is one of the reasons I do this website and reviews. And if I finish the book and write a review that means I liked it and it compelled me enough to invest time in it.
Each one of the stories felt far separate from each other in setting and plot. Mr. Liebert invested much thought and possibly research into the roles of the characters. I felt like some of the stories ended rather abruptly without much of a hook or deeper meaning into the arc of the story, however that didn't take away from the readability for me as I'm not a sucker for algorithmic stories. That could be and probably is why the title of the book is Things Undone. It leaves a lot of room for thought at the end for imagination. It's a beautiful thing.
I noticed some repetition in starting of sentences in story #1 and story #2 ( Starting multiple sentences in a row with They, It, He, etc ). Not to say it wasn't still well written, however it came across verbose at times. The author did mostly redeem this pattern by story #3. I think we all appreciate reading a story where the words dance so-to-speak, in which in many different parts of this book the words very well do dance, but they stop dancing when multiple sentences start with the same word. Small stuff, small details in my opinion ( I'm sure I am at fault for the same thing in some of my writing, although I'm working every day at improvement ).
I love reading short stories. I can slam one in my lunch break or in between doing things around the house at home. This collection is very well entertaining and despite it's few inconsistencies it delivers a well thought out presentation and writing style that keeps you flipping the pages. It's fresh and overall I give it a ★★★★☆ 4 stars out of 5.
