Nate spent his entire career in special operations, four deployments in all. Today was going to be a fresh start in a civilian job. Now he's trapped in the Freedom Tower and the only thing the Ranger has against what's in the mist is a two-foot blade from the office paper cutter. This homage to Lovecraft, Ligotti, and King and should be read with a coffee, beer, or a glass of wine - and the light on.

This is a short story, and sometimes it’s nice to read a short story. Sometimes it’s nice to read a story in a couple sittings and not have to worry about complex mind-blowing plots and two-hundred characters. Reading to be entertained is nice. But this doesn’t mean the story is simple by any stretch. It’s every bit as entertaining as a full-length novel; the short time you spend with the characters you see their qualities emerge. And even though this is a standalone, you can sense there’s more to the events unfolding. That’s nice too.

So Tower is a short story which ends, but doesn’t quite end in the sense that you understand all that’s going on. It’s only the beginning and that makes you want to find out more of what’s happening. Very nice. 🙂
