As many (or some) of you may already know, I ❤ Brian Fatah Steele’s writing, and I’m in the habit of fangirling over it. There’s a very objective reason for that, and that is the fact his writing is freakin’ out of this world awesome. If you haven’t yet read anything by him, I refuse to talk to you. I may consider reconsidering that, but I probably won’t. But there’s something you can do to fix things, and that is go over at Goodreads and read it. It’s a short story made of awesome and win, and it’s a free read. There is no possible better deal, I’d say.
Now, without being tacky or anything, I’ll signal this little bit of info:

Yes, yes, I know, really elegant of me to point it out myself, but hey, I figure who’s gonna be a better cheerleader for me then, well, me? This is the kind of thing that makes a reviewer feel like on cloud 9, especially when you have a fangirling condition about the writer in question. And there may be more for me to boast about in the future, but rest assured, when the time comes, I will, so you won’t miss it.
Ok, now that I got that out of my system, let’s talk about dark delights, specifically Wetter. Knowing who’s work it is, I expected the awesome to be there, but with this author’s writing, you can’t ever really guess just what this read has in store for you. Man, was I blown away.
While his other writings I’d describe more as (yummy) dark fantasy, this is horror-ish, ok intensely horror to me. I can’t really give you details on that, as it would really spoil your read, and that’d be a crime, but I’ll tell you this, if you’re not brave, or a horror-ish lover, you may want to approach this read with caution. It’s dark, and haunting, and deliciously disturbing, and did I mention it’s creepily beautiful? As it happened each time I’ve read Brian Fatah Steele’s writing, I was transported to another world, into another dimension, with thicker, stickier air that clung to my lungs on its way out. I tell you, reading his writing is a very unique experience.
And just look at that cover, isn’t it beautiful? It’s his own work, too. He’s like an all-around artist, his work is genius, on many fronts. It seems somewhat unfair that one person should be so talented, doesn’t it? It would be enormously unfair if I hadn’t learned about his creative genius, that’s for sure.
Go read Wetter. Now. I wanna know what you thought about it. We must fangirl together!! 😀
