I am a HUGE sci-fi/fantasy nerd. My influences range from Joss Whedon, Jim Butcher, JJ Abram, Neil Gaiman and all the flavors in between. There is not a story swimming around my head that doesn't have some sort of supernatural, science fiction-y, or fantastical elements to them (much to the irritation of my more "grounded" creative writing teachers).

Great read! I delved into the intriguing world you created. Loved the suspense. Good job! Could you check out my sci-fi short story, "The Fate Continuum?" Good luck!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Great wriitng, the descriptions and action carried me along. A few spelling errors, though, and some confusion with the tenses. Well done.

Great story! I loved the connection between the two characters, and the concept of Long Island beoming this whole other world. Extremely creative and a great combination of dialog and action. Overall a great read! If you get a chance check out my story This Girl and a Bartender, thanks!

By the end of the story, I wanted more! It's a dark and wickedly fun ride with twists on reality close enough to still feel plausible. Gripping and moving from beginning to end. Keep up the good work!

I really liked your story, still there were times when I was pulled out of the action. There were words missing or out of place (The cage I was in locked like the ones that held big dogs at a pound...) Otherwise it was very good, but the small mistakes kept yanking me back to reality. If you have some time, please read my story, 'Drift Away' and write a review. I would really like to know what you think
