About the Stories – Historical Hell

Abstract Clarity Stories

B.W. Ginsburg

Hi everyone! I thought I would take part of this week to talk about each of the stories included in my new short story collection, Abstract Clarity! Let’s begin with the first story –  Historical Hell!

Historical Hell is my favorite short story in the collection. I love them all, but Historical Hell was extremely enjoyable and interesting to write. I’ve always thought it would be cool to write a story about the possibility of someone escaping Hell, and in a way I think is very fresh, I created a story that explores the topic.

I’ve often found the whole concept of Heaven and Hell interesting and how, we don’t really know what either is like. We can only speculate and come to our own conclusions about the place where some of us believe we go after death. In Historical Hell, I decided to explore a different idea…

Yet Another Review For Rest in Piece!

Adrienne from The Shameful Narcissist Speaks was kind enough to write a review for my novel, Rest in Piece. Here is her review, which can be found on her blog and on Goodreads.

Rating: 3/5

This is a story published independently by fellow writer B. W. Ginsburg who has a blog dedicated to it here.

My initial take on Rest in Piece was as a motif similar to the one in The Lake House (a film I haven’t seen, but I know enough to recall that spin) where two characters are living yet communicating decades apart. Ms. Ginsburg’s novel is a bit more sinister than that as Catherine Adams is trapped in a type of purgatory by a mysterious puzzle. This is more of a Jumanji vibe, if Jumanji dealt with demon possession.

What the book gets right is the urgency of Louise’s quest and fascinating eeriness of the puzzle. It’s also a swift, easy read, which is not only perfect for the mid-grade group it’s directed towards but anyone who wants to delve into a rousing paranormal tale. Mid-graders will appreciate and identify with many of the hurdles Louise faces in her effort so save the trapped Catherine, and the young girl’s fears for her parents’ reactions are logically sound. She even points this out to her father near the end, and George has to agree.

There is an over abundance of telling and exposition in this novel, which unfortunately takes a great deal of the surprise factor away. There are many shocking scenes at the end, which would have had a much greater impact with more concisely edited lines. The characters are also not overly distinctive, so I had to mentally juggle and remember who was who especially during the climax scene where numerous people were involved. George Erikson, Louise’s father, is one exception due to his often explosive temper (not violent though, thank goodness).

Despite any foibles, I’d still recommend this novel, as it was a quick, intriguing read, was quite a bit different from the norm, and I love the fantastic pun/double entendre of the title” – Adrienne, The Shameful Narcissist Speaks

Description of Rest in Piece from one of its readers:

“The Erikson family love their new house.  Louise especially loves her new room.  She has privacy, space to call her own, & the hauntingly beautiful puzzle Mr. & Mrs. Adams gave to her when they moved out hanging on her wall.

Then, Catherine Adams – who grew up in what’s now Louise’s room – makes contact with someone 20 years after she mysteriously disappeared.  But, it’s not her parents to whom she reaches out – it’s 12-year-old Louise she begs for help.

Shouldering the burden alone, Louise finds herself in a bizarre world full of the sublime & the grotesque.  A world where one wrong choice could mean the difference between life & death.

Along the way, she finds out what it means to be a young adult.  She also discovers the true support & meaning of friendship, & that, sometimes, you have to lean on loved ones to disentangle life’s riddles.” – Ariel, Writing Radiation
