Shaun Allan’s Dark Places…Wow.
I’m not sure I can do this collection of short stories and poems justice. Once again, he was seemingly in my head, putting into words various feelings I’ve had over the last couple of years. It’s a bit unnerving, but oddly comforting. The mind certainly does have Dark Places, whether we can admit to them or not. Fans of Allan will not be disappointed in the slightest, as he continues to bring forth the loss, sorrow, love and pain people feel everyday. Not all the pieces in the collection are sci-fi/fantasy/supernatural in nature, though, which lends a more real and honest hand to his writing. My suggestion? Buy it on Amazon. Now.
