Editorial Reviews

Hellnotes Newsletter
It's the depth of the novella I find most compelling. Beneath frenetic action are the underlying themes of sacrifice and destiny, as the author experiments with varying degrees of pressure to force his characters to their breaking-point... The ending will leave you stunned and shocked, but mostly it will make you think. Too few books do that anymore.
Creature Corner - Dave Dreher
The name of the work is Blue November Storms and it is quite simply the best nature run amok story that I have ever read... Brian’s writing style is very reminiscent of King's as he creates very real, very true characters that we can all relate to. We have all known the guys that we share this story with, they are our friends, our family and when they hurt, we hurt and when they are scared, we are scared... I was totally transfixed by this story... I just could not put it down.
HorrorWorld - Mark Sieber
Slowly, steadily, quietly, Brian Freeman has been sneaking up on the horror fiction genre... As with any Brian Freeman story, there is more to Blue November Storms than any mere rundown of the plot can describe. His fiction ripples with facets and provides the reader with much to contemplate after the pages are turned. They aren't simple stories and the reader always gets more than his or her money's worth.

    solid thriller

    In Beacon Point, Pennsylvania, the townsfolk named the high school football stars the ¿The Lightning Five¿ for their athletic exploits. Steven, Harry, Joe, Matt, and Adam were best friends and even built the Summer Place in the woods overlooking the nearby lake together. However, a girl died there, but instead of investigating what happened, the fearsome fivesome were treated like heroes. Two decades later, Adam, who the others thought was dead as he seemingly vanished, calls his friends to ask them to meet him at Summer Place. Adam never truly overcame the tragedy that haunts him still, much more so than his buddies. Excited over the prospect of seeing him for the first time in years, Steven, Harry, Joe, and Matt agree to a twenty year reunion at The Summer Place. --- The five meet filled with nostalgia and excitement, but also lingering is the one dark episode., However, a meteor shower suddenly attacks from the sky with unnatural blue stones hitting near where the quintet reunite. Not long afterwards the woodland animals go berserker trying to kill the trapped humans forced to retreat onto the roof of The Summer Place, an eerie reminder of the tragic pivotal moment in their lives with each remembering while wondering if they like the critters could turn into sociopath killers. --- BLUE NOVEMBER STORMS starts off as a deep psychological thriller in which the audience wonders what happened twenty years ago and why suddenly Adam reappears however Brian Freeman sets the reader up as the tale digs inside the psyche and soul of the lead five, it twists into an old fashion B-movie horror tale (cross between King¿s Maximum Overdrive and the Ninja Turtles) yet retains that soul deep look at the ensemble as each wonders if the others will turn lethal. Brian Freeman provides a solid tale that fans will enjoy. --- Harriet Klausner

    Blue November Storms is a great bit of escapism.  I ripped through this novella in a couple of sittings, and it was easy to get lost in the propulsive action, quick dialogue, and interesting characters.  I’m looking forward to checking out more of Brian James Freeman’s books!

    Blue November Storms is a wonderfully horrific story about a bun

    Blue November Storms is a wonderfully horrific story about a bunch of friends coming together 20 years after "the event".

    We've all read that story before, something tragic happened that draws friends back together years later to deal with it. But wait - you haven't read this story before at all!

    This story has you wondering what the hell happened way back when, gets you invested in the characters straight away, and then BANG! - turns everything on its head to scare the crap out of you in the most horrific manner possible.

    After reading this, I won't be heading out in to the woods for a very long time. If ever again....

    This is a great fast moving short story, that I wished had been longer.  I was really interested in the characters and their backstory.   If you are someone who really enjoys a quick paced short then I would recommend it for you.  Brian James Freeman is a great story teller and if you are looking something longer to read than you should check out his book The Painted Darkness.
