06 May Gilda calls to mind The Tell-Tale Heart
A.E. Siraki gave us a glowing review!
Book Review: The Seven Deadliest, edited by Patrick Beltran and D. Alexander Ward
Here’s the review on my novelette, Gilda, and a link below to the full review.
“Batting for Avarice, we have “Gilda” by John C. Foster. This story reminded me of getting to be a fly on the wall for the show “Feud,”which transformed the famous battle between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford into an episodic format. I loved the interactions between Gilda, Marie, and Hysteria. It didn’t take long for things to get very dark with this tale, and I think Foster did a masterful job with vivid characterization. As well, the tension and suspense that built throughout the piece were very well-executed calling to mind “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. The action eventually builds to a dynamic crescendo and will leave the reader reeling afterwards.”
