“Death of a Pawn” by David Bruns and J.R. Olson

“Death of a Pawn” by David Bruns and J.R. Olson

This is short story and a companion to the Weapons of Mass Deception (WMD) series. The story alternately is told by Alberto Nisman, a special prosecutor in Buenos Aries trying to uncover a governmental conspiracy, and Rafiq, an assassin working with Hezbollah. Rafiq is assigned the task of assassinating Nisman. I was very impressed with the story and the writing. I wasn’t sure went I picked the story up that I would enjoy it but the authors do an excellent job of taking the reader into the drama. The story is short and succinct and I really enjoyed it. I would like to thank the authors for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I look forward to reading more from these authors.

Short Story Review: “The Lotto Lothario” by C.A Huggins

Short Story Review: “The Lotto Lothario” by C.A Huggins

This little story was a fascinating read for me. The author takes us into the mind of a young man who has just been dumped by his girlfriend. We first meet him as he is approaching a liquor store where he intends to buy enough alcohol to get really wasted. The story consists of his internal dialogue as he processes the break-up and speculates on whether or not he will win the lottery. I usually enjoy stories that have a psychological aspect to them, and this one definitely fit the bill. Although I didn’t really care for the guy as a person, I found his dialogue to be very believable. All in all, a nice little story if you just have a few minutes to spare.
