Tales from the Typewriter by Mark Allan Gunnells review

This short story sets up almost as a mini-anthology as a reading enthusiast acquires the old typewriter of a cult writer which then begins to churn out stories on its own.

Author Mark Allan Gunnells does well to diversify the tales here, with a unique mix of sinister tales, including a wanderer getting more than he bargains for from a rural village plus the superb story The Cult of Wrath which explores toxic fandom in the reading community.

The King of Halloween, explores how authors can get pigeon-holed into genres after initial success.

At a brisk 69 pages, you could easily devour this offering in a couple of sittings easily. I will certainly look out for future work from Gunnells, who writes with confidence and can infuse scenes with tension effortlessly.

Tales from the Typewriter by Mark Allan Gunnells will be released on 25th January 2022.
