So I’ve heard of novels (obviously) and novellas, but novelette is a new one for me! I think its adorable and hope to have more novelettes in my future TBR stack.
Thanks to the author, Channing Whitaker, for the copies of his novelettes in exchange for my honest review.
THE REMNANT – Channing Whitaker (Releasing May 21st, 2018)
EXISTENCE AUGMENTED – Channing Whitaker (Releasing May 28th, 2018)
Here are the synopses:
In this suspense-filled, neo-monster, horror novelette, a writer named Gene Winfield discovers an ominous, handwritten book among the belongings of his late, adventurer aunt. As Gene reads, he becomes captivated with the volume’s account of a savage, unearthly creature. In spite of the book’s warning, with his writing career failing, Gene can’t resist the inspiration. Near the roaring fire in his aunt’s otherwise cold, empty manor, Gene begins a story of his own, but will he unleash more than his imagination…
Existence Augmented is a dystopian, sci-fi novelette and psychological thriller. The world outside is cold, hostile, and virtually lifeless. Human existence depends on sophisticated, technological living compounds. The people who don’t have them, once driven to theft and murder, are believed to be long since dead. Alden, a genius of physical and computer engineering, spends his time tending his hydroponics garden, maintaining and improving the complex systems critical to survival, and, in turn, continually refining the pleasant life he’s created with his wife, Laurel. On a day like any other, everything is following Alden’s plans until the power begins to fail…
Which one sounds more interesting to you? I love short stories, so I’m really curious to see how these little guys do (both at just under 50 pages!)
