two nice reviews of my Black Static story


From  Dread Central:

"Drew Rhys White gives us Black Sun next, whereby an unidentified narrator guides the reader in eulogy of the last days of a murdered young boy. Building a tone of reverence, White gradually unfurls a sequence of events that see the bookish young Roman chased, harangued and attacked by schoolmates who live in another wing of the housing scheme he and his father occupy. In a masterful turn, however, the author orchestrates a devastating rug-pull that reveals the more twisted minds at play here are not those that were expected -- forging a moral challenge and skewing of perspective that twists a tight knot in the stomach."

From SFRevu Review:

"Black Sun" by Drew Rhys White -*- Our unnamed narrator seems to be a police detective investigating the murder of a boy named Roman, murdered by three youths named Gus, Tony, and Joanie. He is speaking to Roman, talking about the bullying that had preceded the murder, but also about Roman’s drawings that he has seen. They are profoundly disturbing but very talented. Is this the end of the story, our narrator says no and that provides is with the unease that this effective little story evokes."
