GOOD NEWS! SMOKING POET REVIEWER LEFT “SQUIRMING A BIT IN DISCOMFORT” OVER SKELETONS

The Smoking Poet’s Zinta Aistars recently gave Skeletons in the Swimmin’ Hole—Tales from Haunted Disney World an in-depth review, noting that the stories “are imaginative, and each one, in its own way, left me squirming a bit in discomfort as ghost stories should…If horror isn’t exactly my favorite genre, certainly not my area of expertise, I respect the skill it requires to craft stories that have a haunting quality—whether of light or of shadow. Schoonover can play well with shadows.”

I was really excited to read this review, especially since I know that Ms. Aistars isn’t a fan of horror stories.

It’s posted in the latest issue of The Smoking Poet and a few other places. You can read it here:
