Review: Ghost City
Author: Simon Warwick Beresford
Rating: 5 stars
They say variety is the spice of life and that is certainly true if, every now and then, you try something completely new. I ventured into the world of poetic fiction when I downloaded the highly original Ghost City by talented poet Simon Warwick Beresford.
A short read, I caught a quick plug for it on Twitter late one night. I was intrigued. The author said it was an introduction to his work and promised his other, paid-for works on Amazon are of an even higher quality.
At just 24 pages, it is a quick but, dare I say, satisfying read. Currently ranking in Erotic Horror, its low pagination belies the fact that it is packed with raw talent.
Unlike anything I have ever read before, Ghost City delivers a complete story in verse. Told in thirteen concise parts, the book includes bonus poems including a Ghost City Flashback offering.
This is a story about zombies, scattered brains and a future female heroine. It is about violence, containment and, ultimately, redemption.
A university graduate who has been writing since he was eleven, Simon’s other, longer books include:
Fascinate: Twisted Poems for the Depraved
My Little Black Distress
If you have never experienced horror fiction told in rhyme, this author won’t disappoint.
