Short Story - Soul Jumping

Here we go! Dropping a pebble into the bottomless pit. Follow the link below to a pdf of my short story (20,000 words) Soul Jumping. Please read, hopefully enjoy, and post comments, opinions and suggestions in the comment section of this post.

Thanks to any and all of you willing to give my writing a chance.


  1. Wow Dan I had forgoten that you where interested in writing. Have you been taking classes or just doing it as a hobby because it's a skill that i don't have but would really like to learn.

    Anyway about the story. I enjoied it, very creative take on the bodysnatcher motif. You did a great job at giving the reader enough to try to figure things out but not so much it was obvious. I did find that I didn't like being kept in the dark about the first interview. I felt that because it was first person I should know things as he descovered them. I do see that it was better for the story that I didn't get that information right away but it was still a slight annoyance. Other than that I thought it was very well crafted.

    p.s. if you want good reading you should check out Brandon Sanderson. He is my favorite author at the moment.

  2. Rob,

    Thanks for the comment. I appreciate you taking the time to read my story. I'll see what I can do about that in revision.
