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.

Good story

Very disappointing. Good writer, just doesn't know how to end a story. As a matter of fact, this story had no ending. Don't bother wasting your time with it.

I've read a few of your stories now and I've noticed that you have some wonderful ideas and a definite ability to express yourself in print, but you end abruptly and need some fleshing out as well as some minor work on transitioning between scenes. I hope you keep writing; I can only see you getting better.

Very short, could have been made into a good story. A big thumbs down.
