DISCLAIMER: STORYMANIA DOES NOT PROVIDE AND IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR REVIEWS. ALL REVIEWS ARE PROVIDED BY NON-ASSOCIATED VISITORS, REGARDLESS OF THE WAY THEY CALL THEMSELVES.

"Interesting plot. Good characterizations. A little high-handed, but the surprise ending is worth it." -- S. Kitty.
"Definitely a great story with a spooky ending! It definitely reminds me of some "Awe-S-S-Um" potential. Keep up the good work!" -- Chou Kee Ling.
"First-rate, but a bit scary. Why let the forces of evil win? Good triumphs in the end -- especially ovewr the span of eternity!" -- Jeff Taylor, Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A..
"Ahaa, a**holes like Jeff Taylor who ruin the ending make me laugh. Oh, well. It's even more funny when they don't mean to ruin it, and are just incompetent fools! Whee-hee!" -- Tyrant.
"Damned good! Was it the horror? No...not really frightening. The characters? No, though they were well done. Was it the plot? Kind of. It kept me reading, though it is late. What was it, then, that made this story as good as it is? The setting. I wrote a novelletta about a Zealot-run society with mixed results...because I focused on the rebel-who was a recluse-not many characters were introduced to reinforce the theocracy of it all. But I must say, Worthing, you painted it far better than I. Maybe I'll take "The Box" into consideration while revising. Huzzah and Kudos from mutating from the amateur who scribbled "Ye Who Enter Here" to the artist who painted "The Box". Huzzah and Kudos,indeed!" -- Tyrant.
"Funny, entertaining, smart. I love Dracula, too..." -- Ivana Milakovic.
