Please Review My Works on Amazon and Goodreads.

Phil Slattery, 2015

I would like to ask a small favor of my readers:  if you have read one of my works (and I hope everyone does), please review it on Amazon and/or Goodreads.   Reviews not only help promote my works, but they also help me know what my readers do and do not like and therefore help me improve artistically.

The works I have published so far are mostly short, generally being collections of short stories, which are almost tailor-made for our fast-paced world, enabling someone to read a whole story while waiting for a plane, another while waiting for a bus, another in a doctor’s waiting room, and so on.  Only A Tale of Hell and Other Works of Horror is novel length (297 pages) while Nocturne:  Poems of Love, Distance, and the Night is about standard size for a poetry collection (110 pages).

You can find all my works by going to amazon.com/author/philslattery.

“Nocturne” is Free on May 11

This #FictionFriday, I am giving away copies of the e-version of Nocturne.

Nocturne is a collection of my poetry written from the mid-80’s to mid-90s, a turbulent, fluid time in my life in many ways, but especially romantically. I have taken many of the poems written during those years and compiled them into a dark narrative capturing the emotional turmoil of a narrator who descends from romantic love for a woman into a lonely world of alcohol and night clubs, where his only love is the night that envelopes him psychologically, emotionally, and physically.  It is about 110 print pages in length and lavishly illustrated with photos I found in the public domain (no, those are not photos of me or my former paramours).

You can find it and my other works at my Amazon author’s page:  Amazon.com/author/philslattery.

I have tried to make this a wonderful experience for the reader, exploring the bliss of love to the depths of despair and then to resignation to one’s fate in an existential crisis.

While there, you might want to check out my other work on relationships: The Scent and Other Stories.  In this collection of short stories, I explore the dark, sometimes violent, sometimes twisted, sometimes touching side of love, the side kept not only from public view, but sometimes from our mates. Set in the modern era, these stories range from regretting losing a lover to forbidden interracial love in the hills of 1970’s Kentucky to a mother’s deathbed confession in present-day New Mexico to debating pursuing a hateful man’s wife to the callous manipulation of a lover in Texas.

Phil Slattery’s Sci-Fi Novelette “Alien Embrace” is Now Available on Amazon Kindle

Logan Rickover, owner of a hardware store in a small town in Kentucky, has lucid dreams of life as an astronaut that intrude upon his life at any moment. Which of his lives is real? The quiet paradise of Danville or the terrifying jungle world of Stheno D?

This novelette is a terrific read for those who have only a quick break to take a breather and escape to another reality.  In this sci-fi thriller, I endeavor to blur the boundaries between alien-induced hallucinations, the brutal reality of the present, and memories of an idyllic past.

Ron Baker commented, “This short has exactly what I like in science fiction: planet exploration and bizarre otherworldly aliens, in this case insectoid. The horrendous purpose the aliens have for the hapless astronauts who make planetfall to find the numerous previous missing exploration teams is grisly. I love the mystery of the planet and the authors device of alternating from the aliens bizarre perspective then switching to the astronauts point of view.”
