I smiled the entire time I read this book. It's sweet, fun, colorful, imaginative, and includes wonderful lessons for any child or adult.

Review of “Darkest Hours” by Mike Thorn

It might be odd to call a collection of horror/noir short stories "beautiful," but that is the impression I'm left with.  These are incredibly well-crafted, well-written stories from an author I quickly grew to respect.  Thorn's mastery of prose is an absolute delight to read.  His creativity is refreshing.  His subtle ability to make the...
