Review for The Jack Lockwood Diaries by Geoffrey David West

The Jack Lockwood Diaries

Having already read ‘Rock’n’Roll Suicide’ (reviewed here) and ‘Doppelganger’ (reviewed here) I am a firm Jack Lockwood fan and was delighted to see West release this book, The Jack Lockwood Diaries, packed full of short stories which all feature this favourite character of mine.

Jack is the mate everyone needs to have in their life, honest and dependable he’s always willing to help out a friend and as well as being able to take care of himself when faced with any kind of trouble he is good company and the type of guy you’d want to go for a drink with. There are 22 short stories in this collection which range from humorous tales with a twist to spooky supernatural stories when leave you with much to think about.

I was going to single out some favourites in this review but every time I picked out one to mention another popped into my mind and I decided I’d end up talking about them all and this would go on forever. Suffice to say this is an excellent introduction to this authors work packed full of all good things, strong writing and wonderful imagination.

There are also extracts for a couple of West’s novels at the back and in these West gets to torment Lockwood by putting him in all sorts of precarious situations but on a much grander scale than can be achieved in a short story and all for our enjoyment!
