Book Description

THE TITLE: Feckless: Tales of Supernatural, Paranormal, and Downright Presumptuous Ilk THE STORIES: These tales range from the extreme, the paranormal, the supernatural, the fantastic, the spooky, the creepy, the suspicious, the unpredictably psychopathic, and even the deliciously romantic.

THE STORYTELLERS: The authors come to us from many different genres: Science Fiction, Fantasy, Young Adult, Paranormal, Christian Horror, Mystery/Thriller, Romance, and Poetic Prose. Expect to find vampires, werewolves, demons, monsters, psychopaths and plenty of feckless victims hankering to be taken advantage of in the worst way. Each tale features one or more feckless characters; someone who just can't seem to succeed, someone who never gets it quite right, or just can't catch a break no matter how hard they try. This book should tickle fancies across the board, and will definitely frighten the sensitive-hearted, so tell your friends.

Note: BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW, Content Rated PG-13 for mild language, sexual situations, and violence.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is anything but feckless! February 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit, I never even heard of the word feckless until I saw this book, then I had to look it up. gives the adjective meaning as " Lacking purpose or vitality." The characters in the book that are from nine different authors fit the feckless description. Just as the cover of the book describes, the short stories within are "Tales of supernatural, paranormal, and downright presumptuous ilk." I have always been curious about the abnormal and other worldly, so this book and its tales were glued to my hands until I finished. The characters for me had a feel as if they were oddball cousins of mine, and I honestly hope Ellen Maze and the other authors dream up more of these spine tingling tales very soon. I enjoyed Feckless, and if the supernatural spirits tease your interests, I believe that you will enjoy Feckless, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gems to be found in this book... April 7, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely title, isn't it? Especially in these days of one-word titles: Socks, Crumbs, Help.
For me a short story anthology is perfect to dip into. And what glorious dipping this led to. Because of the array of talented contributing authors I found myself laughing outright ("Vegas" by Ellen C. Maze), trembling to my toenails ("Bully"), and fascinated ("Hunk" by Angela Dolbear). There's never a dull moment as each author's favorite genre comes to the fore - science fiction, poetic prose, you name it, it's there. "Possessed" by Ellen is a mouth-watering teaser for her upcoming novel INDWELLING. Read the story and you'll be gnashing your teeth for the new publication. But one of the greatest and happiest surprises were the stories by Elizabeth Little. "Pink Slip" is roar-out-loud funny. It's about an employer who has to fire his employee because of his strange antics at new moon; "Imprisoned" where the prisoner meets the Devil (I think it's the Devil, if it's not then it's someone very bad indeed). But my favorite was "Friends". Here we meet Jacob and Aroul on their way to the Elves' territory because Aroul has fallen for one of the elves. Ahem, it should be mentioned that Aroul has had a promotion and he's now officially Death. Oh my word. This fast-paced story tells us how Jacob fared the night in Death's castle and what a tale it is, although it finished far too quickly. I'll never forget the creature whose neck's been broken so his head dangles somewhere in the vicinity of his belly-button. To my relief I see "Friends" is another little foretaster. It's been adapted from Elizabeth Little's second novel, "Twilight Nova: Book Two of the Evershade Series is to be released in 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Definition For Feckless: Incredible!! April 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Ellen C. Maze has outdone herself again!! Add superb anthology editor to her long list of achievements. I've read my share of anthologies in many different genres but Feckless has just raised the bar mighty high for all others to follow. The group of authors and stories she chose gives the reader the whole range of both genres and emotions. She mixes the quick and quirky all the way to the deep and thought provoking with the turn of a few pages. The placement of the stories keeps the book moving while still highlighting each author's style. If you're a fan of Ellen, such as myself, or a fan of paranormal short stories, you will not be disappointed and will probably find a few new favorite authors in the process of reading this great book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feckless--Read It! June 4, 2011
With "Feckless," author/editor Ellen C. Maze delivers 25 supernatural stories presented from a Christian worldview. Some of these stories are straightforward with their theological leanings, while others are more implicit. All of them are quite enjoyable. As with any anthology, however, there are some stories that stand out in particular, stories that readers are sure to remember long after they have finished the book. For me, those stories would be (in order of their appearance in the book): "Comeback," "Delete," "dtour," "Thirst," "Runaway," and "88." Overall, "Feckless" is an engaging read that I would highly recommend.
