Have you ever wondered what drives you to excel in your chosen field? Or, what encouraged you to choose that field? It might be the inspiration of a friend or a close family member. But, perhaps there is a force from the world beyond. Joshua has never really taken time to consider why he suddenly chose to be a writer. It was an earth-shattering moment after a tragic accident in his youth that almost caused him to lose his hands. He woke up in the hospital and suddenly he had the urge to write. In fact, he started earning a lot of awards for his stories and eventually became a best-selling author. In the course of researching his next story idea, a person possessed by some unknown spirit, he starts to make sense of the shocking confrontation with an elderly couple who accused him of plagiarizing his latest best-seller. Now he wonders if he really is a writer.
Steve Zimcosky’s novella, The Revelations at Black Corners, is full of unexpected nuances and twists in the plot. What begins as a simple narration of a best-selling author’s success story evolves into a compelling mystery that involves spirits from beyond. The characters are realistic and well developed and the plot thickens at a steady pace, reaching a surprising climax and a startling but satisfying resolution in a very short time. The story is compact and full of mystery and excitement. The ‘what if’ scenario presented certainly makes the reader wonder what powers drive us from the spirit world. A great read.
