Meet my Shorts! 5 Stars! A resounding Huzzah!
I recently downloaded a short story by a VERY famous author, called Mile 81. I was so disappointed! Normally, this author evokes SOME response from me- horror certainly, nervous anxiety, admiration...but it seemed that this short story was passion-less...almost robotic in the telling.
Not so, with J. Bryden Lloyd's new compilation of short stories called, Meet My Shorts! From the first offering; a poem called, "Winter Walk" that resonates with tenderness, love and loss to the hilarious, "Can I?"
The ghost story entitled, "Hide and Seek" is one of the best I've ever read, and "The Beast" has a gorgeous trick ending that is usually reserved for only master story crafters...
I am convinced that Mr. Lloyd is rapidly entering this realm of exalted story-telling. He tells his stories with a quick wit, humble humor, and a passion for writing that evokes an emotional response in the reader, that is sadly lacking in some of our more recognizable published names.
I HIGHLY recommend, Meet my Shorts, and thank Mr. Lloyd for yet another fine addition-
