The Demon's Head by Richard C White (a review)

This short story is a fantasy world set, Indiana Jones style that packs a hell of a lot into its 21 or so pages.
The hero of the story is a thief, down to his last few silvers who hears talk of a temple and treasure in the nearby swamp and decides to have some of the bounty for himself.
The story has huge possibilities for a follow up and I hope to see much more from this author

I got through this story in one sitting but when I got out of bed just now I decided to have another read over coffee and biscuits, and it's even better second time around. There is a hell of a lot of world building for a short story. This author is surely going to be one to watch.

And it only costs 77p (I think that's a dollar and change in the USA but don't quote me on that)

    Looks like a great site. It was recommended to me by Peter Lukes at Musa. I am now a follower.

  2. Sounds great! Thanks for the review. I'll be sure to check this out.

  3. Like your review, Andy. Any book that's better the second time around is worth it at any price!

  4. Reading a second time--that's a great recommendation right there. I love to revisit books and short stories. Sounds like a winner!

  5. Great review. Thanks for letting us know about it. I've tweeted this for you.
