Blog Tour: It Will Be Quick – Karl Drinkwater*

Read my reviews of Karl’s previous books; Lost Solace Chasing Solace Grubane

A single decision can save – or ruin – a life.
An opportunistic baby theft by a young woman in pain. Two strangers shipwrecked on a lifeless rock,
unable to speak the same language. An isolated cycling holiday descends into terror. One woman seeks the courage to destroy her life. A miracle unites a community, and teenagers take a stand against hypocrisy.

Karl Drinkwater presents characters to root for – and characters to dread – in sixteen tales of humanity, endurance, and spirit.

Karl Drinkwater writes thrilling SF, suspenseful horror, and contemporary literary fiction. Whichever you pick you’ll find interesting and authentic characters, clever and compelling plots, and believable worlds.

Karl has lived in many places but now calls Scotland his home. He’s an ex-librarian with degrees in
English, Classics, and Information Science. He also studied astrophysics for a year at university, surprising himself by winning a prize for “Outstanding Performance”.

Karl is an active member of the
British Science Fiction Association (BSFA), the Horror Writers Association (HWA), and the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi).

When he isn’t writing he loves guitars, exercise, computer and board games, nature, and vegan cake.
Not necessarily in that order.

My thoughts:

This was an interesting mix of short stories, some just over a page long, about people making decisions, good and bad, and consequences. My favourites were Fire in the Hole even though it was very sad and the miraculous The Potential which again was quite sad but was ultimately rather lovely. I think sometimes we need bittersweet and these stories definitely are that.

*I was kindly gifted a copy of this book in exchange for taking part in the blog tour but all opinions remain my own.
