I m so happy that Larry gifted me with an ARC for his new story that is now available for everyone D To be a Vampire is to know your pale skin and red lips offend others Short stories Not all authors are able to write them, if you ask me, because to do them right, you have to use a different set of tools and methods than when you are writing a novel The pacing, the flow, the way of transporting your message to the reader, the amount of detail is different, or rather should be different, because [...]

Full review on Prism Book Alliance Larry Benjamin s writing gives me a lot to chew on, particularly by way of his economical descriptions that manage to say so much Right away, I was brought into this story.Each house had a massive front door of quarter sawn oak banded with iron On either side of each door hung old fashioned gas lanterns whose soft flickering light swatted ineffectually at the dark.Benjamin s mix of something futuristic with something gothic had me grinning with anticipation.Ami [...]

Editor s review Larry Benjamin s writer s palette takes on a whole new spectrum of colours for this novella, which is, as the title and the blurb clearly point out, that of the vampire subgenre of fantasy But this is no ordinary vampire tale, so do not expect sparkles, or cheesy romance, because you won t find it here.On a basic level such as Larry s writing could ever be described in that way , this is the story of Barnabas and Gatsby, the student and his teacher, and a love nestled within thei [...]

I was given this book to facilitate an honest review I ve known Larry since I read What Binds Us book show 1 He s an incredibly talented author and his writing is beautifully crafted No wonder he goes by the name wordsmith This short novella is, as Larry s previous works, very well written and reads smoothly The story itself focuses on two men, one vampire, the other a painter It is too short to say much about the story beyond the blurb without giving away the plot The combination of vampire and [...]

2.5 starsI just can t make up my mind about definite rating of this one When I do,I ll rate it,but for now I m leaving it blank.Premise for this book indicates some kind of dystopian or alternate history story with a twist on vampire lore history,but focusing on romance Which is partially true,but this book is first and foremost an allegory in which romantic storyline only serves as a plot device And after reading author s posts on Vampire Rising in which he talks about tackling the issues of fa [...]
