It’s no secret that I enjoy the writing of C. H Aalberry. You can read my review of his YA fantasy novel Wish here. Now is a brilliant time to download Wish or his wonderful book of short stories The Origami Dragon and Other Tales – they are currently absolutely free on Kindle!
The Origami Dragon is really rather special- darker than Wish in some ways, the intelligent mix of compelling characterisation, fantasy and science fiction is original and engaging. From tiny elephants to inter-stellar travel, the collection has surprising twists and charming moments. The author has a gift for intriguing anti-heroes and bringing the dark and fantastical to life. There’s also a clever intertwining intertextuality throughout.
Get yourself some quality, entertaining literature while it’s free! Also, look out for stunning use of spelling, grammar and punctuation in both. Come for the plot, stay for the syntax!
Read another review of Wish from the estimable Adam P Reviews. His overview is simply excellent!
