Review of "What's In A Name?" by Michael Eging

About The Author

Mike has wanted to write since he was very young. His earliest memories are of carrying a battered old notebook around full of illustrations and stories. He would often transpose those ideas on his grandmother's old typewriter.

While in college, he was inspired by professors and visiting writers to BYU. Literary classics such as Song of Roland and Inferno were often in his backpack, along with Russian textbooks. Chapter 4 of Annwyn's Blood was written during this time as a short story.

Mike works in Washington, DC since pursuing graduate studies in Russian History. He focuses in domestic policy issues. Recently, Mike has pursued an interest in writing screenplays for feature films with his first option being a medieval epic, Song of Roland. He continues to focus on a variety of script/movie projects, most recently a horror thriller, Feast of Saint Nicholas, and a political thriller, The Prince.

He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife, Lori and his wonderful children. He dreams of one day driving in his old Defender to Alaska with his kids and their dog, Marlin.

My Review

Exciting and Imaginative Short Story

I first want to say I don't usually read Fantasy. I have wanted to but didn't know where to start, so I began with this short story. Then I wished it was longer.

This is a well-written short story that leaves you wanting more. Imaginative and exciting with lots of action. Reminded me some of Tolkien's work. I would love to see it expanded into at least novella size.
