Meet the Author

"Our free short stories are intended as a doorway to our more mature premium works. Their purpose is to showcase the author’s writing style and use of evocative imagery. Although these are his earlier works—he has gotten much better since—they serve as a nice introduction to his thematic concerns as well as to his belief that a story has to be believed in to be effective. Therefore, what he presents in these stories are situations and the reactions of characters within those situations."


Walter Lazo enjoys writing horror and science fiction stories with an occasional martial arts story thrown in for good measure. He is currently obsessed with the short story form and hopes that it will make a comeback in popularity.


Walter grew up reading the short stories of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard and Richard Matheson, and later discovered the works of the great science fiction writers of the 20th century; namely, Philip K. Dick, Ray Bradbury and Isaac Asimov.


He is also a fan of Stephen King and of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.


Walter lives in the south and spends most of his time reading, writing or blowing things up.

    Okay

    Story has potential but just ended abruptly. No backstory, no plot, no explanation. More like a scene than a short story.

    Good Start Needs More

    It is a short story tbat had potential to be a good novel or novella. The agent hired is just there to get info on missing workers. He finds the aftermath, but would have been a better story with follow up or fill in the back story of the facility. All in all not bad.
