You’re going to need your floaties for this one. THE SEA WAS A FAIR MASTER is a brilliant collection of flash fiction. 23 stories fill the collection, each better than the last. I dig the arrangement of the stories. I don’t want to go near the ocean any time soon.
I enjoyed all of the stories, but there was one story that stuck with me. It’s about a shipwreck and the passengers are floating in the ocean. One by one, they are pulled down to the murky depths to their death. Who’s next? To me, watching everyone die before you, knowing your time is at hand is the scariest thing in the world.
Calvin Demmer hits on different types of horror. I dig his writing style. The setup and execution of each story is spot on. THE SEA WAS A FAIR MASTER is a quick, exhilarating read. It’s a real nail-biter. Nothing can prepare you for this book.
THE SEA WAS A FAIR MASTER is a great way to spend an hour or so. If you haven’t checked out Calvin Demmer’s work, then I suggest diving into this one. You won’t be disappointed. It’s a top-shelf collection.
