Well, The End in All Beginnings continues to generate more great buzz over at Amazon. Now, we’re not close to the total number of entries I stipulated for my HORRORSTAR contest, but we’ll keep it open for a while longer. So, don’t forget to buy it, read it, review it. And then, you might be a character in my upcoming novel The Fearing.
Anyway, two more five-star reviews, which brings the total to 14 five-star reviews.
“This is an eclectic collection of 5 novella’s with a little bit of something for everything. One of the things I like about Mr. Taff’s writing is the varied styles, and I think this collection shows off that range. Even tho Mr. Taff is usually referred to as a horror author, it’s not really about gore (tho there is some!). He has a way of somehow getting the reader emotionally involved. This is especially true of “What Becomes God” and “”The Long, Long Breakdown.” Melen
“I have a love affair with John Taff’s writing style. He lulls you into comfortable conversation. You know you shouldn’t fall for it. That around the next page, he’s going to step all over your comfort until you aren’t sure how you should feel. But you can’t help it. He has this way of holding back his biggest secrets until he wants you to know them. You spend the whole story wondering what’s the point, and then it happens, and you’re like, “OH MY GOD! WHAT JUST HAPPENED?! John is placed in the horror genre, but his stories aren’t ever what you expect to find in a horror novel. There’s monsters, and ghosts, but very little blood and gore. I think M said it best, when we were discussing a better label for John’s type of stories, and he said, “He makes you uncomfortable.” Really, really uncomfortable. And not in the “oh, that is disgusting,” way. In the way that socks you right in the feels like a gut punch that knocks the wind out of you for what seems like days, but is really only a few minutes.” Rayne
