A fantastic collection of a wide variety of stories, leaving the reader quite surprised as individual stories are explored. I found this extremely appealing, undoubtedly adding interest, not to mention very original in presentation.
17 stories all eclectic, ranging from ScFi to horror, a bit of a sinister feel, even humor, a few literary, also mythical poetry – all part of the grab bag. If you desire assortment this is a collection you will enjoy. A fairly common element in the collection, people viewed as outsiders, human nature, threads dealing with childhood focusing on fear, observations through the lens of a child’s eyes.
With a collection this assorted I’m sure you will find more than a few appealing and of interest, especially given there is no definitive theme, just a loose thread somewhat tethering the stories together. A wonderful variety providing endless entertainment. Well done collection of short stories.
