Once again, Luffman drew me in with rising tension and an absorbing, different plot I love how he connected the main character s nervous tick and the ending Fans of Stephen King will enjoy this, but it s also fun if you ve ever played with Tarot cards.

Here s another great short from Brandon R Luffman I first read some of his work early last year, and couldn t wait for .The Card delivered with a well written story, like I had expected There s a great, slow reveal as the story moves along as to what exactly is going on We get to see, along with Jason the main character, the fate that a mysterious tarot card brings with it Even though there was some obvious foreshadowing
The Card by Brandon R Luffman is a short story that reads as a novel Luffman develops the story in a slow and delicious dance with the reader Building suspense As with his longer piece, Frostwalker, Luffman s character development is easy and relatable You have three friends socializing when a card none of them have ever seen before turns up It looks like all the rest How could the same person have not made it A need to know what comes next builds and Luffman does
I thoroughly enjoyed this short story It was a can t put down kind of read that pulled me in and moved quickly Like another of his short stories, Out After Dark, this story seemed like it could easly be fleshed out into a full novel This author does have a novel out, F
Tarot cards have always held me in awe This short story shows exactly why they should be held in awe The title short story actually takes something away from this because this is a full story in a smaller format Excellent read and I look forward to from this amazing writer. I was pleasantly surprised by this short story I couldn t put it down and wished it was longer It left me feeling like I had just watched a really good scary movie. Really enjoyed this short story, it was easy to visualize and flowed nicely and I liked how the macabre scenes made use of all the senses Look forward to reading from this author.
