The collection, co-written with my best friend, Michael Sheehan. Jr., has received a five-star review on Amazon.
The review: “THE PRISONER OF CARCOSA by Mark McLaughlin and Michael Sheehan, Jr. is a collection of supernatural and sci-fi short stories. This anthology consists of six tales, some written by both authors together, and some written solely by Mark McLaughlin. The subject matter of each story is truly bizarre … and will delight fans of this genre. What I found refreshing was the quality of the writing that is so good it makes reading a pleasure. Every reader will find their own favorite in this collection. My favorite is McLaughlin’s “Diabolical Entities And How To Deal With Them,” that is at its core a spotlight on our own personal demons that encourage self-destructive and self-defeating behavior. It reminds me very much of C.S. Lewis’s, “The Screwtape Letters,” a cautionary illustration of Satan’s methods of deterring us off the right path. The accompanying offerings in this anthology vary from science fiction to horror, and each is a gem. Altogether, these short stories by Mark McLaughlin and Michael Sheehan, Jr., deliver. Do I recommend THE PRISONER OF CARCOSA? You bet I do! FIVE STARS!!!”
