Soon to be in an anthology called Asylum Walls, The Jellies, will be well worth the wait.
The Jellies is the first work I have read of Alex’s, I am looking forward to reading more. So dear readers, keep on the lookout for Asylum Walls .
The Jellies is a tightly –woven short story that doesn’t disappoint. The opening scene finds five people in a lifeboat, with little hope of rescue. The yacht they were on caught fire, forcing them to abandon ship. Very quickly their situation worsens, something or someone is in the ocean. Matthew sees someone in the water and dives in to rescue them. What happens next couldn’t be possible, or could it? Alex’s writing was tight and thrilled me from the first word, a no-stop into the impossible. Well done Alex !
