Dagon

Pages: 1 – 5
Review Date: July 16, 2022

The first thing that I notice about this story is the level of descriptive detail everything goes into. On the second page, I was beginning to wonder if the story would ever have time to go anywhere with the level of detail it went into. The U.K. spelling, seldom used language, such as “espied” didn’t help with my conusion. I’m sure I’ll have to revisit this story with better context later. As a first impression though, I’d say it did a good job. I’m interested to see where the rest of these stories take me, as they’re supposedly loosely connected.

I’d say this is too short to call it a story. It’s 3 pages long. It feels as if the author was just trying to use every single word in the English language in his writing, or flexing his vocabulary, to be more direct. If you strip out the excess fluff, there’s little there. There’s not much to say, that I didn’t say in Dagon. The level of descriptive detail is absurd.
