Book Review | The Sea Was a Fair Master by Calvin Demmer

The Sea Was a Fair Master is a collection of flash fiction from Calvin Demmer.

The world’s fate lies with a comatose young girl; an android wants to remember a human she once knew under Martian skies; men at sea learn that the ocean is a realm far different from land, where an unforgiving god rules; a school security guard discovers extreme English class; and a man understands what the behemoth beneath the sea commands of him.

The Sea Was a Fair Master is a collection of 23 stories, riding the currents of fantasy, science fiction, crime, and horror. There are tales of murder, death, loss, revenge, greed, and hate. There are also tales of hope, survival, and love.

For the sea was a fair master.

The Sea Was a Fair Master was such a fun read. I want more!

The Sea Was a Fair Master is a collection of 23 flash fiction stories. I have been toting these stories around for a few weeks now reading them when I had just enough time for bite size chunks. I'm going to have withdrawals now that I have finished the last story.

I always feel like the shorter the story is, the harder it must have been to write. I'm really impressed that Calvin Demmer was able to intrigue me and entertain me with such short selections.

If you are in the market for some wicked little stories, The Sea Was a Fair Master is a great collection to pick up.

  1. I've really only heard good things about this one so I'm very curious.

  2. Ooh it's flash fiction, not an anthology- I didn't realize that at first I guess. Sounds awesome though!

    1. Yep! I don't think I've read anything like it before.

  3. Short stories are nice when you're on the run, and flash fiction can be a lot of fun! :)

  4. I've been seeing lots of good reviews for this book, surprising because you don't see much flash fiction out there!

  5. This was such an amazing collection. It truly surprised with just how good it was. Each story was complete, no matter how short.

  6. Glad you enjoyed this one - it's not for me as I don't really read a lot of short fiction and even when I try it just ends up being a bit dismal - but this does sound interesting.
