~ The Typewriter
by David Morrell

One Word Review: Predictable

My first foray into Gallery of Horror was more like watching a Twilight Zone episode. Young, struggling writer finds magical typewriter which helps him become a millionaire. But as always, he loses it all. There really was not anything creepy or scary about this story. The instant the typewriter begins mysteriously typing all on its own the reader knows what is bound to happen.

Regardless, the story was well written, just not what I would call horror. I gave it 3/5 skulls.
