Book Review: Twisted By Uvi Poznansky

Twisted  By Uvi Poznansky 3/5 stars This was a beautifully written piece of literary fiction. Dark? Not so much. Twisted is a collection of short stories that makes one ponder about their existence, choices, and life. Along with the stories comes a poem (I'm not into poetry so I don't feel comfortable reviewing it) and ...

Book Review: Awaken by Zach Bohannon

Kyla, what’s dark fiction?

"You write dark fiction? That's cool. What's that again?" I get this all the time. According to online dictionaries, dark fiction explores the heinous and taboo ideas of the 'human monster'. It's realistic; these people exist. We know them personally or see them on the news. But my definition includes that and a few other ...

Strangers played pool in a dim corner while lapping down beers. Others were enticed by the 80-inch flat screen that blared blowing whistles and a screaming crowd. Troy dropped his face ...
