Greetings from Hellville by Thomas Ott

by V. L. Craven

I’m not entirely sure what to say about Thomas Ott’s Greetings from Hellville other than I liked it, it’s horror/creepy and there’s no dialogue.

Yeah, that’s about all I can say about it. I would like other people to read it, which is why I’m attempting to write a review of it, but it’s difficult. It’s a collection of four stories, each a few pages long, that tells a creepifying tale.

Chiefly, it reminded me of Peter Kruper’s Mind’s Eye comics, where a story is unfolding before you, innocuous enough, but the reader really doesn’t know where it’s going.

OK. So I gave it a shot. Let me know if you check it out. It’s really one of those books where you press it on people and say, “I don’t know how to describe it–just read it and tell me what you think.”
