Review for the 8-author shortstory compilation, 'Mercury Silver'

Thank you, Nikki Mason of Bestchicklit, for your sweet review of P'kaboo's 'Mercury Silver' :

What they say:
A quirky compilation of short-stories by 8 individualistic authors with very differing styles. Enjoy!

What we say – review by Nikki Mason:

This is a wonderfully eclectic mix of short stories including fairy stories, modern fables and touchingly emotional pieces. If you’re the sort of person who prefers a box of assorted truffles over a bar of dairy milk – this is for you.

For me the stand out stories were Betwixt and Between by Lucy P Naylor, which was disturbing but delightful and charmingly written and Going Home by Lyz Russo, a chilling little tale that uses the short story genre to its full potential. Both had the air of the supernatural about them, which appealed to my gothic tastes. Having said that, all the stories have an air of magic and mystery, even if it’s just the funny little circumstances that life can throw up.

An easy book to dip in and out of and a crazy mix of writing styles, Mercury Silver is totally worth a punt.

Reviewed: "Freedom Fighter" (Solar Wind 3)

Thank you, Colleen from Silver Threading, for this lovely review of "Freedom Fighter", the third in the "Solar Wind" series by P'kaboo author Lyz Russo. 


In her review Colleen focuses on the teenage relationships in the story, one of the main themes of "Freedom Fighter", inbetween freak waves, terrorist attacks and flying UFOs.


 I have to tell you all, I am hopelessly in love with this series. The characters have found their way into my heart. I feel pained every time I come to the end of another exciting installment because I want to know more! I think I must have some gypsy blood running through my veins!


What happens next? I’m dying to find out!  

Freedom Fighter finds Captain Radomir Lascek up to his neck in negotiations with the Unicate and other warring factions as he tries to carve out a peaceful treaty to the new world order that has taken over the earth. So much so, that he has no choice but to make his daughter, Rushka Donegal, the captain of the Solar Wind.  


There are currently a few give-away copies of "Freedom Fighter" available at Smashwords:
