    One thought on “Empty”

    1. I received a copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review. This is in no way reflected in my opinion of this book.Empty is a mix of science fiction and horror. This novella has a claustrophobic and lonely feel to it. We get to know Hansen as he roams the lower depths of the ship he works on. Since he works in nearly complete isolation he's the only character we learn anything about. The creatures in the story, reminiscent of the fungus that kills Jordy Verrill in Creepshow, are impossib [...]

    2. I really like the cover on this one-the artist did a great job with a scene that could easily fit in the novella, with perfect detailed coloring and shading. Judging by the expression on the man's face, however, a small part of me wonders if this cover would have worked even better tied to a comedy, which Empty is certainly not. That is a minor opinion however, and it certainly works a million times better than the cover on my ARC copy (which was a big white page of nothing!)I'll start with the [...]

    3. 'Empty' is a captivating atmospheric science fiction tale that certainly finds inspiration from genre staples like 'Alien' and 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'. While the source material sounds familiar, it is Arthur's fantasy telling that catapults the story into a gripping and claustrophobic crescendo. His storytelling skills are firmly grounded in classic sci-fi of old and is delivered with technical charm like Arthur Machen. I am looking forward to Arthur's next creation.

    4. EMPTY offers us layered reading from a talented author who held me captive throughout this mysterious yarn. My kind of storytelling which is the most important element of the tale. Even if slightly horrifying sci-fi is not your norm, you're bound to find nothing empty about this story or Arthur's head.

    5. Suspense--from Start to Finish!The writer pulls you into this quest for answers to a perplexing mystery. Through each turn, just when you think you might have figured out the answer, a new twist occurs. This story will keep you guessing right to the end!

    6. I found this to be an entertaining combination of hard sci-fi and horror. The author does a great job with the details, really painting a picture for the reader. He makes you really think about what kind of unknown terrors might await us out there.

    7. “There’s a crushing silence when moving through the void of space. The night sky paints a false picture of the cosmos, giving the impression that reality is filled with objects and phenomena. Truthfully it’s more empty than full. Nothing but seemingly unending blackness in all directions, punctuated by brief flashes of deadly light.”This excerpt was taken from chapter two of Ty Arthur’s wonderful scifi/horror novella, Empty. The writing is this strong throughout the piece. At no point [...]

    8. "The atmosphere that is portrayed in this story genuinely scared the wee out of me. I felt very alone and very in need of a hug when I finished this story. I was cold and scared."See here for the full review:Empty
