    Original Review at Jaunts & Haunts 4.5/5 I gave this short story four and a half stars! Travis Liebert has done it again!  This short story was great, and I enjoyed every murky minute of it.  In this tale, we follow a diver in his investigation of an ongoing set of disappearances near a local river. Through his sleuthing skills, he discovers a dark and grisly evil, one that he desperately hopes to thwart.  This story had it all. Mystery, chill factor, excitement.  I liked the main character.

Travis Liebert has done it again!  This short story was great, and I enjoyed every murky minute of it.  In this tale, we follow a diver in his investigation of an ongoing set of disappearances near a local river. Through his sleuthing skills, he discovers a dark and grisly evil, one that he desperately hopes to thwart.  This story had it all. Mystery, chill factor, excitement.  I liked the main character. He's kind of your average Joe diver at first, but when he starts noticing odd things about these disappearances he can't let it go. In that way, he's a hero, and I found myself rooting for him the entire time. He desperately wants these disappearances to stop, and his heart's in the right place.  The plot was intriguing from the get go. I was curious about this river and why so many disappearances happened. I mean, people can be stupid, but the number of disappearances implies maybe something else is at work. That element of mystery really kept me going, and layer by layer we get further insight as the MC discovers small, startling truths.  This wasn't hardcore horror but more atmospheric in nature, and that really worked for me. You don't have to have tons of gore to have a scary story, and Liebert is proof of that.  This was a stunning read, and I can't wait to read more!

    A good short story, with a excellent start. Sadly, the ending does not match the horror that meats us in the beginning, and the story falls short of what it could have been. 4 Stars for the initial horror.

    3.5 Stars This novella is a very atmospheric kind of horror. The horror comes not from ghosts and ghouls and what have you, but more simply the depiction of the small town and the mystery that surrounds it. The fact that water, especially very deep water, freaks a lot of people out helps create that horror vibe. The story is the perfect length, in that a story like this needs to be "short and sweet" otherwise, the creepiness would wear off.

I was a little frustrated by the revelations towards the end, it relied on some tropes I'm not a fan of. In all honesty, the story didn't necessarily need an explanation of who/what/why and I would've been perfectly happy if the events went unexplained.

    Wow. Just, wow. From the moment I began reading the letter that comprises "Badwater" until the second I flipped through the last page, I didn't take one full, deep breath. Search & rescue divers see horrors that most of us, thankfully, cannot even comprehend. That is the very nature of their job. When Joseph began his letter I was immediately caught up in his tale. Travis Liebert wove together perfect writing & a character that I was rooting for with into a story that rushed past like a raging r Wow. Just, wow.

    Badwater Badwater starts out with a gripping story line that grabs the attention and you feel you'll be up all night. Then the f bombs start and it interrupts the flow every time. I have up before the end of chapter one. Some of us are just too offended to read your work. That's unfortunate as I was really getting into it.

    Foray Into Cosmic Horror Badwater finds itself solidly in the genre of cosmic horror with more than just a nod to the Cthulhu Mythos. However, the story is not a Lovecraftian pastiche but a solid tale that stands well on its own, introducing us to a unique monster of the author’s invention.

    In the town, we don't speak about that part of the river. We don't talk about why so few bodies are recovered from there. Or the mysterious deaths of those who stumble upon its secrets. This short terrifying tale will haunt you. In the town, we don't speak about that part of the river. We don't talk about why so few bodies are recovered from there.

    An excellent novella A strong continuation of his finely crafted mythos. I am enjoying my dive into the detailed multiverse the author has crafted and can hardly wait to read his next offering.

    An excellent horror story. It has some Lovecraftian themes, as other reviewers have noted. It benefits from vivid writing, a believable central character, and gradually mounting suspense. Great work - I will be reading more of this author!

    A well-written short story, reminiscent of the style of a multitude of creepypastas I've read and listened to. Likable main character, too. Worth the half hour or so reading time. :) A well-written short story, reminiscent of the style of a multitude of creepypastas I've read and listened to. Likable main character, too.

    Decent quick read. Could be seen as a twist of The Green Man lore, in my opinion.

    cultural appropriation rampant Sort of a pseudo Native American legend attempt, like an evil creator or something of the sort. Overall not a recommend.

    Brilliant short story Happened to stumble upon this short story thanks to Amazon, I'm glad I have it a bash. Tense dark story that reads like a warning letter.
