“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 was born in Cambridge, MA, and now lives in North Carolina. As a child he discovered his love of Weird Fiction and large, epic, heroic stories, as well as German and Greek mythology, devouring the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Robert E. Howard, J.R.R. Tolkien, Stephen King, the Grimm brothers, Bram Stoker, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Walter grew up reading the short stories of 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 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. As an adult he has tried to create his own mythos, writing about the Demon World and other creatures that torment men’s dreams. He is a longtime fan of Stephen King and of the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. ! ! ! A T T E N T I O N ! ! ! Our Forums Are Now OPEN! Join us at: http://werewolfwinter.com/forum/

The Old Mansion based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.
My first bone of contention is with character development. These characters act like five and six year olds not teens and pre-teens. Secondly it starts out as elves and then just falls apart in a pile of confusion from the writing. It had no flow, no plot development, no substanance. It needed a lot of work before being put out there for reading.
Great Tale Fairytale characters may not all be as sweet and kindly, or even as beautiful, as they are portrayed, as three children find out in this little story.
I was disappointed that it wasn't expounded upon. It could've been so much better.
