Deadman’s Tome presents First Contact. This volume of galactic terror features stories that warn of the consequences of bold space exploration, exploitative mining, venturing too far, and contact with foreign entities. You see, dear reader, we are not alone, and our first contact might just be our last!
So, I do have a short story in this one which is scifi/horrorish, but I’m going to review the rest of the book. This group of short stories was pretty cool. I felt like it was diverse in the content and the way they were written by each author, yet the common denominator was scifi.
My favorites were, A Slow Death by: James Grim Desborough, which was very abstractish and had an interesting vibe! I also loved The Octopus in the Corner of the Room, even though Jane made me mad! It was a weird and quirky story which I’m all about!
I finished this book in one sitting, and I was invested in each of the stories, and it made me absolutely want to stay away from space! Even if you aren’t a scifi fan, you should definitely check out these stories!!
