Persephone’s Winged Reviews

“It was a good novella. It was bloody and gory, everything that is expected of a zombie tale. I can’t wait to read the second story in the series.” – Persephone

Shivers of Horror

“I really enjoyed it. I think there could definitely be a sequel, or it could be left just as is and still be fun. I could see this as an episode of Masters of Horror or Tales from the Crypt. Looking forward to other horror stories by this author, you can tell he’s got the passion for it.” – Kat

Pearls Cast Before a McPig

“This is a very cool zombie read. Although a zombie outbreak in a constricted area has been done before, Shaw gives his own spin to it in an original way.”

“I really liked this book! The prison zombie twist was very refreshing! The story line was great! I hope there is a part 2 coming up soon!!!Read this book!” – awood

“Felt like I was at a midnight Zombie movie fest. Though a quick read, take your time or you’ll miss all the rich detail. ” – T.L. Gray, author of Milledgeville Misfit and the Arcainian series

“Picked this up as a freebie. Well written, well edited, quick read. Would like to see the author make a novel out of this story. As is, about 20 pages long. Nice break from work, lunch time read. ” – GrassHopper

“This was a great short read. Very well done, and just like I like zombie books (except for the ‘short read’ part). I would love to read more of this story if it were to continue. Certainly worth a dollar. ” – J. Hinds

“This is a fast-paced zombie thriller that takes place in a prison; a deathrow inmate uses voodoo to resurrect himself after his execution, but he is able to create more undead with bites. Griffin, one of the guards, notices the undead are weaker the further away from the source they are & fights his way through the prison to find a way to stop the head zombie. Shaw uses foreshadowing to set the mood, then dives into an avalanche of gore, brutality & desperation. The characters were flat & lacked any personality, but I would still like to see a follow-up to this story. ” – Ursula K. Raphael “AstraDaemon, The Zombiephiles”

Reviews for Little Demons

Pearls Cast Before a McPig

“Shaw manages to create a setting that’s spooky and intriguing and I like the way he sets up his characters. Frank is a complete bastard, but still Shaw succeeds in letting me root for Frank. The other characters are really cool as well and I wouldn’t mind Shaw writing more stories set in Hale.”

Have You Heard My Book Review

“I LOVE this novelette!! A wonderful story with a lesson all in one. Don’t let the title fool you, it’s a more in depth story than it leads you to believe. You’ll enjoy this novelette and the message on greed is one that should be shared everywhere.”
