    Subtle sense of humour Is my first reaction from quivering to chuckling, Mr Szabo has prodded the reader s hook deep into my imagination, and I am immediately very intrigued Chuckling soon turns to chortling, just as I was savouring the keen prose, and the 1930 s noir aura I realize noir has become an overused, and sometimes inaccurately applied, word but trust me, here it fits like a velvet glove caressing an iron fist In addition to delivering that finely attuned humour, Author Szabo is Subtle sense of humour Is my first reaction from quivering to chuckling, Mr Szabo has prodded the reader s hook deep into my imagination, and I am immediately very intrigued Chuckling soon turns to chortling, just as I was savouring the keen prose, and the 1930 s noir aura I realize noir has become an overused, and sometimes inaccurately applied, word but trust me, here it fits like a velvet glove caressing an iron fist In addition to delivering that finely attuned humour, Author Szabo is a well read individual, who manages to work in themes and allusions from many different genres Supernatural, Fairy Tale, and even fact His characters are delightful people and drawn with much talent, and his protagonist is a likable, easily comprehensible, individual who just needs a littlegood fortune Pale Moonlight is a precious, quickly read tale, a short story in the 7 Post Meridiem universe of Istvan Szabo I consider it a must read and can t wait to findfrom this intriguing author

    Pale Moonlight is the second story I ve read from this author and like the first book I read, this one shows great promise It s worth mentioning that the writing is superb The author paints such a vivid picture of the time period that it s easy to lose yourself in this world I had no trouble envisioning myself walking through the mean streets of Post Depression New York City This is the work of a true wordsmith.My only real complaint, and the reason why the story doesn t rate higher, is the Pale Moonlight is the second story I ve read from this author and like the first book I read, this one shows great promise It s worth mentioning that the writing is superb The author paints such a vivid picture of the time period that it s easy to lose yourself in this world I had no trouble envisioning myself walking through the mean streets of Post Depression New York City This is the work of a true wordsmith.My only real complaint, and the reason why the story doesn t rate higher, is the fact that there isn t much story to speak of The so called event this book is building up to turns out to be quite a non event and left me wantingof an impact from the story A good story is comprised of memorable moments There are a few here, but not enough to make this a classic Still, it s worth checking out if for no other reason than to get a taste of this author s wonderful writing style

    This is quite a short tale, and I normally adore them Sadly, I just couldn t enjoy this one as much as I d hoped I struggled for over a week something I almost never do No matter how hard I tried, I couldn t get involved in this story I didn t understand half of it there was no cohesion to the tale at all at least in my opinion I didn t even understand the point of it until I reached the end I thought long and hard before I wrote this review, but I just couldn t care about the tale No This is quite a short tale, and I normally adore them Sadly, I just couldn t enjoy this one as much as I d hoped I struggled for over a week something I almost never do No matter how hard I tried, I couldn t get involved in this story I didn t understand half of it there was no cohesion to the tale at all at least in my opinion I didn t even understand the point of it until I reached the end I thought long and hard before I wrote this review, but I just couldn t care about the tale No glaring errors, nothing that would pull me out of the story, but just not my scene
