An Inspired Mess (short story: 1,644 words)

Hey there, wanted to tell you that I found this to be a really satisfying read. For me 'satisfying' is that well-rounded, bitter-sweet kind of tale that feels like it just couldn't have ended any...

Thanks for the tip, Mike C. I own Forgotten Voices of the Holocaust (predictably a difficult, intense read due to the content; needs to be digested in small chunks, I find), but hadn't realised it...

Love the premise.

The one thing that particularly jarred me was the transition into Chapter 2. It's the "Hello there." that bothers the crap out of me. I realise that from this point you are...

Nnnnnnyargh. I can't make my piece work, and I've run out of time to agonise over it. Well done to those who've submitted; looking forward to reading the newest entries :)

Oh that is a cool premise. Reminds me of some of Philip K. Dick's short stories on the theme of identity and reality. Glad the italics work for you - I believe they still fit with your concept, and...

Interesting predicament. On first reading the piece it did seem like fairly run-of-the-mill insomnia to me - but with just one or two unsettling things thrown in. Listening to small sounds, staring...

I think this is ultimately the best and worst thing about adaptations. I would agree that more often than not the onscreen version lacks a vital element, but that vital element tends to be something...

Films as good as the book?

It's an age-old trope to say that the film will never be as good as the book, but I would disagree. As heart-breaking as it is see your favourite book dismembered onscreen in a bad re-telling, it is...

I'd have to agree with Polaris about calling the things 'Robots' - for some reason it just breaks any sense of tension when I'm reading it. I think it's to do with how the portrayal and perception of...
