“Fade To Black is a very entertaining story. It’s gripping, it has me at the edge of my seat, and it even has me feeling scared – and you’re looking at an unapologetic fan of gore-drenched horror movies here. The quiet moments when Dean and Stacey find solace in each other’s company provides the tenderness to counter the bleak desolation that is the rest of the story. All in all, Fade To Black is fabulous!” – Mrs. Giggles
