Okay, so I don't normally do book reviews on my blog, but I recently read a collection of short stories by a new writer friend of mine and just had to share.
Tales From a North Shore (Volume 1) by J. Thorn is a selection of some pretty awesome stories. From the psychologically horrific, to introspective, to paranormal and downright spiritual (in a cool way), Thorn manages to dabble expertly in all. His words are lyrical...seriously...as I was reading I could hear a soundtrack for each story. In fact, Thorn has recorded a reading of one of his stories from this collection here (the background music is none other than NIN...my favourite band--click on the Hearts of Ochre vid ;-)
This is an author to keep an eye on, folks...his voice will pull you in and enthral you. I highly recommend checking him out...and checking back in here cause in a couple of weeks I'll be interviewing Thorn, an interview that will have you equally as enthralled.
