A New Orleans policeman hell-bent on revenge, a time-traveling physics professor on a rescue mission, an American family trying to escape the wrath of a native American nature deity. As random as these events sound, they share one thing in common. They are parts of the several plots that make up Brian Burt's new book, Mindshards. This is a compilation of things that go bump in the dark. Walk through the wastelands of a dying planet, and experience the pain of watching your loved one die repeatedly, not to mention rescuing futuristic relics from an alien planet. Ghostly apparitions and ethereal killers stalk these stories. With some rather haunting poetry to go with it, sinister entertainment is in the offing once you summon the courage to pick up Mindshards.
Brian Burt's style of storytelling is unique. In Mindshards he displays his ability to alternate between different paces of a story despite maintaining the same fright-filled, suspense-dripping theme. He tests the limits of a reader's understanding of the urban legend scene while placating the romantic at heart with the kind of poetry only a true adherent would appreciate. The stories have very interesting storylines, replete with characters that words do little justice to describe, the plots are very descriptive, if not graphic and the pictures used to introduce them add a touch of the surreal to the book. Mindshards is a work without comparison, a thriller genre junkie's ultimate fix. Credit must go to Brian Burt for such creative work.
