THE TIME POTTER’S WHEEL
By Dane Hatchell
Dark. Very Dark.
A government agent gets the surprise of his life when he finds a dismembered body in his trash can. What’s worse is that he knows the victim, and because of the secret project he’s involved in, realizes he is somehow responsible.
The Time Potter’s Wheel is a short story around 5,000 words in length.
I don’t make a point of reviewing every single thing I read here for many reasons. And, quite frankly, it would be tedious to write such reviews for every short story and novella I read over lunch. I do, however, make a point to leave at least a short Amazon review like a responsible person, especially for things nabbed during a sale or giveaway.
But this… this short story. This required a response.
Dane, if I could have, I would have created a review using only emojis, because I’m just not sure how to find the words for this. Your writing is always dark and fun, but this one is just dark, man. Dark. Starts dark. Ends dark. Light a candle, dude.
The Time Potter’s Wheel delightfully crosses the genre lines as it encompasses characteristics of science fiction, mystery, and horror. I found the overall feeling of horror to be prevalent even though the writing style was more suggestive of sci-fi. Time travel is a sci-fi staple, but Dane Hatchell has added his own brand of oh-my-god-what-did-I-just-read horror to it to create a unique piece that is both outright creepy and thoroughly enjoyable. That being said, oh my god! What did I just read?
