    "Conceptually Interesting, Visually Light" I read the short stories in this book through a download, having become curious after reading the reviews below, the strong rating it has recieved, and the interesting preview that the author has laid out for readers. In general, this book offers an interesting look into the private lives of the undead and how they occupy the lives of the living. Several of the stories had concealed endings that gave the entire tale a new dimension, and forced me to re-read it in a completely new context. However, the book would greatly benefit from stronger imagery. For instance, a scary house seems to be the unifying theme for the tales in this compilation, and yet the readers know little to any details about the house in question. At times it's even difficult for the reader to understand that all of these tales are supposed to take place in the same house of horrors. The characters could also use a bit more details to make them easier to... More > sympathize with. Over-all there are interesting concepts and a curious over-arching theme, and, with a bit of fleshing out on the author's part, this would make an interesting short story book. Best of luck to the author, and thanks for opening this piece to free downloads.< Less

    "New Group" Hi! I'm James Roulston, the guy who wrote Council of the Saleem. I've started a new group for Young Writers. Its called Young Writers Appreciation Soc I read Fright House and I loved it. I think you're perfect for my new group. I know that you read Council of the Saleem and you said you liked it so it seems we'd do well in a group together. The aim is to get lots of young writers together, reading each others work and spreading the word and giving each other constructive feedback. If it's something you're interested in the join up and submit your book for the storfront. I'll accept it immediately. If you know any other young writers then ask them to join. James Roulston PS - Sorry to leave this message as a review but the website wouldn't let me send a message to you for some reason(?)

    "I love this book!" I can honestly say that I wasn't expecting to love her book as much as I did. Fear is what Lydia writes about very well. Her stories, all about different fears and how her characters react are tied together by a sinister house. What I really enjoyed about "Fright House" is that not only do the inhabitants deal with fear their way but Lydia entices you into thinking how you would handle these fears. Lydia's book does what not many do - it makes you think. The fears in "Fright House" aren't obvious fears like a bunch of spiders or clowns but fears that go deeper yet are common fears we've all can and have experienced. I wish that this book was available when my kids were younger. I would have loved to read a story to them and then discussed how they would have handled their fear in the situation. Lydia, PLEASE keep writing!

    "Plenty of Frights; needs a bit more House" Hi Lydia I enjoyed reading your bite-size stories (I've yet to read The Evil Walls); I found them imaginative, especially the feelings and emotions of the narrator. The only aspect which I thought could be added throughout the stories is more description of the house itself. (Perhaps adding elements implying it's a living, breathing entity so there is more antagonism between the frightened narrator and the oppressive house.) All in all, an interesting book. My favourite stories were Pay Me Back and Felix. I wish you the very best of luck in selling your book, Lydia! Kind Regards Spider Griffin P.S Neat video, by the way! P.P.S Thank you for leaving your review on my site; much appreciated.
