Short Story Review: Recently Deceased by Henry Bassett

Death is an instantaneous event. What follows is confusion and uncertainty. Join one individual at the moment in which their body and soul separate, yet are trapped together as they journey with the living to their final resting place.

My Review

I chose to read this short story after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This story is very short but it’s thought-provoking. What happens after we die? It definitely elicits a response to contemplate the after-life. Death is such an unknown, even for people of faith. You can absolutely believe that you’re going to Heaven or Hell, but how do you get there?

I think Recently Deceased being so short certainly brings the subject to the forefront of the reader’s mind long after the story has been read. It did mine.
