    1. Mark Fuller Dillon is an original talent, whose precise use of language, obliquely disturbing imagery and meticulous world building single him out as a writer to watch Peter Tennant, BLACK STATIC 35 Most of my stories are set in the region where I live Gatineau, Quebec , and are based on some of the stranger moments of my life, or on my nightmares which have kept me awake and nervous until daylight since I was three years old.I ve had work published in Barbara and Christopher Roden s ALL HALLOWS and in John Pelan s DARKSIDE I ve also had work accepted for anthologies and magazines that faded away before my stories could appear The best of these are collected in my second ebook, IN A SEASON OF DEAD WEATHER.Right now, my goal is to find reviewers Writers can focus on craftsmanship, but they cannot be certain of just how much they ve been able to learn and apply, until the readers tell them To that end, I m inviting you to let me know exactly what you think of my stories Honest feedback, pro or con, is one of the most valuable things a writer can use.And please don t hesitate to visit my blog at markfullerdillon advice or comments are always welcome, and so are visitors.Thank you Mark Fuller Dillon

    2. Those familiar with the work of Mark Fuller Dillon are well aware of his strengths as a writer. He writes with clarity, carefully crafting scenes and characters though deliberate word selection and an impressive ability to translate his mind's vision into prose. These same strengths, so capably displayed in his previous collection, "In A Season of Dead Weather", can be found again in his most recent offering, "At First You Hear The Silence".I read "At First You Hear The Silence" three times; fir [...]

    3. An interesting short story of survival horror with some cosmic twists. Reminds me a bit of an alien abduction narrative mixed with William Hope Hodgson's 'The House on the Borderland'. A young boy, Philipe is left for a night home alone to tend to the animals on his parents farm when a strange intervention occurs; it is otherworldly? Interdimensional? The truth may ultimately prove elusive, or illusive.

    4. A fantastic short story that piques the intrigue. We have a likable protagonist, a young boy who is desperately searching for answers. His family has secrets, and he knows it. But as he is a child, they won't educate him. However, sooner or later all secrets come rushing to the surface. Whether we want them too or not. Some secrets can be dangerousI like Mark's writing style. Poetic and descriptive, yet keeps a steady pace that continually builds. A pace that is controlled with precision as it s [...]

    5. Reviewed by Jonathan Huls at The Reader's HollowAt First, You Hear the Silence. Second, you read Mark Fuller Dillon’s flamboyant prose that keep you desiring more, well past the last page.With a sense of looming doom that was reminiscent of how I felt the first time I read Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes, Mark’s novella made me feel like I hit my funny bone harder than I ever have in my life. Never actually funny, the feeling provided an ever-building sense of foreboding and [...]

    6. Mark Fuller Dillon is a writer of exemplary short stories and novellas. I have previously enjoyed both his collection "In a Season of Dead Weather" and his novella "All Roads Lead to Winter". Both are supreme examples of story writing and are essential for anyone with an interest in strange stories, science fiction – or just good storytelling.His latest publication is a novella called "At First, You Hear the Silence". Philippe is 13 and growing up in rural Canada. He is only just becoming awar [...]

    7. This book deals with a young man, who is trying to save his father. There are alien races, and different languages, but suprising it is very well done. I've often seen horror and sci-fi writers get too lost in creating their world that they forget that the reader wants to dive into the plot, and get to know the MC. This author was able to handle all of the above and pull it off fantastically! I enjoyed that as you go through the book, the author leaves hints and clues to help you read between th [...]

    8. Originally, mother (a.k.a Shell) was the first one to read this book. Now, just let me say that she is for sure NOT one who enjoys anything fantasy. She avoids it like the plague. She's nothing against it; it's just not something she enjoys.just like I prefer fantasy books over, say, historical fiction. Despite her aversion to fantasy books, I convinced her to read this one. It was short, so it didn't require much convincing The next morning, she looked at me and said "No. You have to read this [...]

    9. For full review please go to: 5girlsbookreviews, Twitter @camartinez and Facebook "5 Girls Book Reviews"REVIEW BY: Angel, age 13 years, 3 monthsMAY CONTAIN SPOILER:This short story was fascinating and full of exciting mystery. This story is about a boy named Philippe. His parents and younger siblings go visit his aunt, leaving him alone. When he is alone, stuff starts to get weird, such as: the animals won't go outside, there is a dead silence everywhere, humans are shaped as birds, birds are sh [...]

    10. Excellent. Superior command of the language and serious imagination propel this alien intelligence version of The Birds.The intelligences involved are as vast and cool and unsympathetic as any Wellsian antagonists, and just as unapologetic about their action toward humanity.The human characterization is spot-on. I can recognize parts of the protagonist in several people I know. You can make your own guess as to his father's secret. The clues are right there for you to read, in between the lines. [...]

    11. Intriguing!This book was a great combination of darkness, adding accents of sci-fi and fantasy. I was really engaged in this story, and the suspense was gripping. I really appreciated Dillon's writing style and I look forward to reading more of his work. His technique of intense characters and great plotlines is a gift. The title drew me in, but the story made me stay. I may just read this book again.

    12. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.An interesting short story, with a mix of humor, horror, and a likeable young protagonist. It's well-written and has an awesome subtly built up suspense.

    13. Didn't like it much. Took me a longer time than usual to finish as it didn't really hold my attention very well. My mind kept drifting away from the story. Interesting idea though.
