    One thought on “The Voivod: A Ghost Story”

    1. I believe this might just be the creepiest bit of fiction I have ever read. I have read Poe, King, Hill, Rice, and Koontz so I have high expectations for my ghost stories. After reading this brief work by Mr. Selwood I stared at the wall for a good while. Thinking, and wondering, and worrying.I almost didn't write this review because I feared someone would come across it, read it, then suffer the same fate. But after all is said and done this was just a story and a story can't harm someone in re [...]

    2. *I was given a copy of this short story in exchange for an honest review*In "The Voivod" it felt as though the author took up M.R. James's style which may seem dry to some modern readers but the story has subtle and terrifying hints throughout. A Voivod is a Slavic term for a commander in the military (unless Google steered me wrong) and when this particular Voivod's book was being transcribed a whole world of trouble came with it. I found the build up to be worthy of the big twist. It is a dark [...]

    3. A brilliant ghost story that evokes a mood from an earlier time. This short story subtly raises the reader's anxiety until the final twist. The author is trying to evoke the feeling of M.R. James’ antiquarian ghost stories. If you Google those tales, you can see how successful this emulation was. I like to read Victorian tales so this story was not a difficult read for me. However, some may find the formal language a challenge but it is worth it to persevere until the end, which was quite good [...]

    4. *I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review*The Voivod is a really creepy tale that leaves you with goosebumps after the final page. It’s a short story written in a Victorian style that Selwood captures perfectly. It’s subtle, but darkly atmospheric and the final twist at the end is unexpected. Cleverly built up this is a great read and I look forward to reading more like this from Dominic Selwood.

    5. I am not sure this is exactly a ghost story, but it is certainly creepy and haunting! I don't usually enjoy stories of this type, but I could not stop reading! I am glad I did, it is a creative ending!

    6. A dark, unusual, but creepy story with very intense characters. A short and quick read. For myself I would have prefered a longer story.
