Here Be Monsters demonstrates exceptionally tight, tense genre writing with well-drawn characters and emotional depth.
SHOW ME SHORTS Judges' comments.
The theme of the terrifying price of human hubris has a timeliness and an urgency that I believe will resonate worldwide... It’s my considered professional opinion that Human Traces has substantial breakout potential.
