The Rats in the Bulkheads Bruno Dias I bounced off this a couple of times because it does things I don't usually care for - I had to download a thing for my specific system, the text types out - in full words at least instead of letter by letter. But I finally got time to sit down and relax wit...

dripping with the waters of SHEOL by Lady Isak Grozny This story has beautiful visual presentation and prose styling. The writing is lush as well. My only suggestion is basically the standard "show don't tell" - especially in horror adventure. Telling the reader in second-person how t...
