“Dead Trees Give No Shelter”, a Novelette by Will Wheaton – A Review

[Edited] The Two Gay Geeks today learned of this new novelette by Wil Wheaton. Mr. Wheaton has become quite the renaissance man; is there anything he cannot do? He does voice-over work, audio book narration, acting, Game Master, writer, and now ghost story teller. Apparently, he has been a writer of many things but, this is my first experience with his writing having just noticed the release announcement on Facebook. So, I may have to go and pick up more of his scribblings……

Below is my review of this great short story.

A Grown-up Campfire Story

All I can say is WOW! What a great creepy story that is this novelette by Wil Wheaton. As the title of this review suggests, it is a campfire story that grown-ups would tell to scare the hell out of each other.
Once I started reading I couldn’t stop. The narrative is compelling and the suspense keeps building until the end. I began to suspect the ending in the last page or so but, was surprised when it finally resolved.
Wil has done a great job of crafting this tale down to the tiniest details. Who knew you could do that sort of world building in a novelette/ short story.
Thank you for helping me live inside Jay’s head and experience the pain and heartfelt emotion being experienced. I even shed a tear.
It is worthy of an entry in the 70’s TV show Night Gallery but, I would recommend reading this in the daylight.
