Reviews for Ill at Ease 2 begin

Now that Ill at Ease 2 is out in the marketplace, the reviews have begun, with a couple of nice things being said about my contribution, Masks.

First cab off the rank is this review from Dark Musings

Masks is by Robert Mammone and is a story I enjoyed very much. It’s cleverly written and constructed, slowly revealing the story beginning with an almost surreal conversation in a funeral parlour and culminating in an atmospheric and gruesome climax in the subway system below Melbourne.

The second comes from Ross Warren (full disclosure: Ross edited the anthology Darker Minds, which has a story of mine included, and has another submission from me under consideration for a follow up collection).

Masks by Robert Mammone

A man’s search for his missing partner within the seedy nighttime world of a Melbourne train station is wonderfully executed tale that builds tension gradually and puts the reader right on the platform at the centre of events.

Some pleasing comments there – with hopefully more to come.

    In the spirit of your (highly commendable) “full disclosure” policy I have to say that as well as blogging on Dark Musings I co-edited Darker Minds along with Ross! That said, it in no way influenced my opinions of Masks which I did enjoy very much.

      Transparency never hurt anyone. Just ask Eric Snowden!

      In seriousness, it doesn’t hurt to be open about these sort of things. Readers need all the information to make informed decisions.
