    1 thought on “The First”

    1. I first discovered Scott Nicholson by picking up his free horror anthology Ashes on Kindle. Being the cheapo I am, I’d decided there was nothing better than a free book. (Of course, my thoughts on the matter quickly changed the moment I read Dan Dillard’s short story “Unlucky in Death.” More like, “Unlucky For Stumbling Upon This and Wasting Precious Minutes of My Life That Could Have Been Spent Jabbing Bamboo Shards Into the Softest Parts of My Body.”)Where was I?Right—Nicholson. [...]

    2. The First is a short story collection by Scott Nicholson, containing stories written in the first ten years of his writing career. There are stories of the weird and fantastic and stories of how the mind can play tricks on us—or how maybe the mind knows more than we think it does. There are stories of a future dystopian world, where the universe is controlled from afar by a totalitarian committee that has banished religion in the name of science. All of the stories are well-written and will le [...]

    3. Conjunto de relatos cortos de "dark fiction", que vienen a ser relatos con mala baba. Lo de "vivieron felices y comieron felices" no tiene cabida aquí y en ciertos casos las cosas acaban muy feas. Como todo relato corto que se precie, tiene un buen giro argumental que te hace despertarte del sopor en el que caes leyendo la historia.Quizá sea porque es la primera vez que leo ficción oscura, pero este libro no me ha convencido en absoluto. Algunos relatos no los entendía en absoluto, era como [...]

    4. This is a short story collection and like most collections, there are stories that I like and those that I don't. Nicholson does have a style that makes one what to see what is next but the pace is not too fast or rushed. One has time to think as they are awaiting the next event. I could have done without the Christianity bashing that some of the characters did. I realize this is the cool thing to do these days and is why I skipped a couple stories. I've read a couple of Nicholsons short story c [...]

    5. Original, thought-provoking stories. The second set of stories are dystopian lit, of which I am a big fan. I enjoyed these stories because they were about the same dystopian society. However, each story was from a different perspective, which certainly gave you a more rounded view of the society itself.

    6. Ok, this book was a bit of departure for me, not my usual style at all. I didnt dislike the book, far from it, but its perhaps not a style i would pick up easily again. Maybe its the short story part of it that i couldnt get to grips with as there is a lot to cram into a small space. Having said all that I would try more short stories, but perhaps not this genre.

    7. Mostly "Not My Kind of Sci-Fi, Dear." A few stories got my interest, but many left me faintly queasy, or irked me with their attempts at A Clockwork Orange-y future-slang. This author is apparently well-known for his ghost stories; I'm interested, but with this kind of first impression, not sure I will try them.

    8. I really liked this collection of speculative fiction. I actually kindled up some more of his short story collections based on how much I enjoyed these stories.Scott Nicholson lives in the Appalachian mountains here in NC and I really love the way even the sci-fi comes across a little southern MOUNTAIN gothic.

    9. I generally don't give short stories five stars. They always leave me wanting. But most of the stories in this collection are brilliant. And many are very disturbing. Scott Nicholson has quite an imagination! A great read.

    10. His writing is amazing. I only gave it four stars just because of personal preference really. I wasn't real into the futuristic aspects of these short stories.

    11. I guess I am a simpleton!This book was a complete waste of time. I must of missed whatever I should of read first to make this gobbledygook make any sense!
