recent reads

If you’re at all familiar with Web Fiction Guide, you may have noticed my recent spam-load of reviews. Why have I been reviewing so much lately, you may ask?

No, I don’t do it just to see my name all over the home page! Do you think so little of me?

Fine, fine. I’ll admit it. But it’s only a tiny percentage of the reason.

There are so many stories listed on Web Fiction Guide that are languishing in the darkness, unreviewed. How many of them are hidden gems, stories worth reading?

There is only one way to find out. And while I’m at it, I may as well point out the discoveries worth checking out.

Tales of Pneuma by Frances Gonzalez

Genre: Mystery / Urban Fantasy

Rating: 4 stars

A collection of short stories with an overarching plot, thus ideal for serial and short story lovers alike. The writing style is quite literary (which is rare for online fiction) and is filled with striking descriptions.The stories follow Liam Wheelwright as he investigates the deaths of his parents, which leads him to working in a rather alternative chocolate shop.

Black Hat Magick by Kyt Dotson

Genre: Noir / Supernatural

Rating: 4 stars

An well-written alternative detective story.The story follows Elaine, a university student who, in her free time, works as a private detective. She is a skilled hacker, intelligent, and dismissive of authority. But she is equally knowledgeable about the ‘arcane’: the supernatural, and how magic and technology can mix.

About A.M. Harte

A.M. Harte writes twisted speculative fiction, such as the post-apocalyptic Above Ground and the zombie love anthology Hungry For You. She is excellent at missing deadlines, has long forgotten what ‘free time’ means, and is utterly addicted to chocolate.
