Review: You Only Get One Shot: A Horror Novella

You Only Get One Shot: A Horror Novella You Only Get One Shot: A Horror Novella by Kevin J. Kennedy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

REVIEW: YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT by Kevin J. Kennedy and J. C. Michael

YOU ONLY GET ONE SHOT is a delightfully creative, engagingly constructed horror novel. It's also a mystery, almost of locked-room stature, as if Agatha Christie had partnered with Edward Lee. The engrossed reader gets more than one shot: counting the Epilogue, there are actually five discrete stories! Someone has lost a loved one to apparent suicide--but that someone blames four popular authors for the death. Allegedly each of the writers rejected the loved one, a budding but uncertain and unconfident writer, who just sought a modicum of encouragement. Instead, spirit was crushed by sheer hatefulness. Now someone orders each author to compose and post a short story, by deadline--or else.
