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.

    I actually liked this - and this is exactly the type of story ending that is supposed to make you use your imagination. Good work.

    Terrible

    It was rushed, the characters were undeveloped, and the story had no real plot. It was a whole bunch of randomness i guess thats what you get in a 38 page book

    I was very disappointed in the not only the length, I expected it to be longer than 38 pages, but that there was no real resolution, as if the writer may or may not write another story after this. Lame is the only word that comes to mind after reading this.

    Pretty predictable but enjoyable

    Not hard to guess what's going to happen but I read it anyway. Was a good short and easy to read.
