As The Crabian Heart by Erik Hofstatter comes out in hardback, another great review on Hellnotes

Hot and fast on the recent review in Starburst, yet another glowing review appears on hellnotes for Erik Hofstatter's coming-of-age horror story, The Crabian Heart, coinciding with its publication in hardback.

"I like this little collection a lot. Definitely a case of bigger not always being better. Hofstatter could have watered this down with more words, but that would have taken the impact out of the stories. I also like how he slips a lot of important messages into his work. For example “people are scared of what they don’t know…or understand,” says Enola, as she and Ales walk along the beach. Zsofia tells him that life is a gamble and his mother points out that the powers that be make the rules that govern us and we have to go where they tell us to. Ultimately, the decisions of what we do are ours, but I’d like to suggest that you try a copy of The Crabian Heart.   That forward is going to be the icing on the cake!"  Read the full review on hellnotes
