Is this a morality tale?

Posted on Sun, 16 Dec 2018

Not sure, but it's s slyly funny, entertaining story that builds a nice air of intrigue and comes to a satsifying conclusion. Nice on Assassin.

Lovely story

Posted on Sun, 02 Dec 2018

Funny, warm hearted, and I like the way you focus on a detail of modern history to convey the relationships within your family.

It could do with a proof read: there are some typos and you need to decide whether or not you are spelling out...

Nice piece

Posted on Fri, 23 Nov 2018

I liked the gentle, suggestive quality of this, paintine some vivid pictures of the places and hinting at a connection through the sound of the piano. I couldn't help seeing it as the opening scenes of a European art house movie. Is it the...

Considering it's an extract this works very well as a standalone piece. A credible slice of the type of angst that affects many people at some stage in their life, but with a nice uplifting conclusion. Good one Harry.

Very good story drew.

Very sad ...

... but powerful in its honesty. I'm sure a lot of people go through these emotions when a loved one who has been seriously ill for a long time passes away. And I like the way you convey that in a lot of little details about the narrator's life...

Very sad

Posted on Sat, 16 Jun 2018

This might come across as a bit too quick and a bit too brutal, but I'm sure it represents the way some people treat their children. It pulls together a lot about parental favouritism, impatience and a heartless competition between siblings that...

First rate story Kilb. I

Posted on Thu, 26 Apr 2018

First rate story Kilb. I liked the way you use a few details to convey Robert's memories of the marriage and the dynamics of the new relationships, and create an underlying tension with the lump in his stomach that couldn't realistically be...

It rings so true

As someone who was once an occasional, and unwilling goalkeeper on Sunday mornings, I can identify with this completely. The sense of desolation does take one to a spiritual place that would have been a great inspiration to Shakespeare.
