UK reader Claire Faulkner wins the “review race” contest from the latest Goreletter, by being the first to post a review of 100 Jolts to amazon.com. Although she certainly could have given a thumbs down and still won the contest, her review was very positive. It reads:
Short, sharp and definitely shocking. Whatever your taste in horror, ‘100 Jolts’ will have a story for you. Intensively strong in style and content, highly addictive narrative. Arnzen gives horror again and again in bite sized shorts – you won’t want to put it down. Highly recommended.
Shortly thereafter, Tracy Mowdy beat the pack to barnesandnoble.com, comparing 100 Jolts to being strapped into an electric chair.
And I may offer consolation prizes to runner’s up who post reviews of 100 Jolts to either site before the next Goreletter is released, so if you’ve read the book, post your feedback to those online bookstores!
Also just in: Flash Fantastic magazine reviews 100 Jolts: “This guy handles flash horror like a skilled surgeon with words that sing darkly. And he didn’t forget humor. 100 JOLTS delivers plenty of that. The humor is like chocolate dessert after a bloody heaping of raw meat.”.
