The great points of the book
I liked reading Journeys of Wonder because it gave me something different in each story. The writing is awesome, the stories were totally different each time. Some dark, scary, others kind of morbid, some stories left you in shock. I loved two short stories in particular titled The Door, which happens to be the first one in the book. Second one I really liked was titles Infinity, I then also noticed they were from the same author. Not to say that all the stories I didn't enjoy as I really enjoyed reading them all, just those 2 were my favorite.
This book is a short read with hopefully alot more to come. I also thought that the cover was very inviting, the authors stayed true to the genre with this cover! Liked it!!! This is a must read especially for Halloween coming up if you want a good scare!

In the story The Door, which happens to be my favorite, I really just thought about the Saw at first, people locked in a room with something they were all trying to figure out to get to the conclusion. About mid-story I figured out what was going on but the play out of that story was completely mind-blowing. Made me stop at the end and think I hope that is not how it goes in real life.

There are many stories that leave you thinking WOW, I pictured an ending totally different. That's what I loved about Journeys of Wonder!!

Things I did not like about the book
Shortness of some of the stories, I have read short stories from Edgar Allan Poe before so I know that some leave you wanting more and that is just what this book did, but I need more in some of the stories. Technically this is not a bad point but as good as this book was I had to pick something I didn't like about it!

I hope that there is more to these volumes soon, because if you are a horror/scary genre person like myself you too will love this book.

I received this book FREE from the author for a 100% honest review

I loved reading "Journeys of Wonder," in a chilling, boogieman, afraid to close my eyes kind of way. Great, short stories that read fast, with as many twists and turns as full-length novels.

Awesome! I'm no longer going to feel comfortable trusting time, my neighbours & family, opening doors, and putting off until tomorrow what I should do right now. Great stories - I raced right through them! :)

Journeys of Wonder, Volume 1 is an anthology of horror/thriller fiction by three authors. These stories lean more toward psychologically thrilling than what has become standard blood and guts horror. I'll admit that I am pretty unfamiliar with the genre in general so I can't really compare it to anything else, but it is a good quick read for fans, or people on the fence about the genre. These are well written stories that go by quickly and give you a good taste of what will be offered in the future editions. This collection is well worth the meager investment it takes to get your own copy.

I'm always interested in the offbeat, the fantastical and chilling, so it was exciting to find five stories in a single anthology that fell into all three categories and raised the fuzz on the back of my neck. I was glad it was a balmy summer day of reading and not one of those wintry dark ones.

The Door had a poetic appeal with the use of a repeated story element and a slow, yet well-paced revelation of what the door symbolizes. In Infinity, Ian Kezbom tackles a well-worn theme--time travel, but handles it with with a fresh twist, leaving the reader in a time loop. Blackout and Eye of the Wolf by Lisa Gail Green raise the bar on horror in fantasy, and you can't stop reading until "The End." Even after you close your eBook, you have the feeling there's still something in the shadows she hasn't revealed. Leslie Rose's love story, Afterdeath, takes place in a world where death is as much a part of a relationship as life, and she builds an amazing world that's teeming with captivating images.

According to the authors, this is the first of a series - if this is the case I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. This issue has five strong short stories - some science fiction, some not - but all great spooky stories.
+The Door - Great opener for the anthology - they're trapped in the same room, but whats the connection between the six occupants?
+Blackout - More of a straightforward horror story - the leering neighbor with a dark secret
+Infinity - Strong science fiction story - time travel can be tough, and this does it well in a short space - I can see this expanding out into a novella easily.
+Eye of the Wolf - great twist on a popular horror/genre topic
+Afterdeath - The great beyond in the far future, and a great way to end the first edition - the strange terminology might throw readers not used to reading science fiction short stories, but I loved it.

Great work by all the authors!

At first, I wasn't so sure about this book because of the cover. The cover reminded me of the stories I used to read as a kid. You know, like Scariest Stories to Tell in the Dark. I still remember one of the songs in the back. I think it went something like: The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, in your stomach and out your snout. I don't remember the rest, but the cover made me thing of those types of stories.

As I read the book, which is quite short and consisting of five short stories, I realized that this book is a lot like those childhood tales. Except, it is geared and adapted to an adult audience. It was brilliant.

The first story, "The Door" by Ian Keszborn, was a perfect start to the series. "When the door opens the world disappears." I loved how you gradually realize what's going on. What is that room? Why are they there? What do they have in common? You'll have to read to find out.

"Blackout" and "Eye of the Wolf" by Lisa Gail Green were great chilling tales. You know bad things are happening. You may even suspect even worse things are going to happen. Still, the author ends the stories with the type of closure I haven't read in years. Happy endings are overrated.

"Infinity" by Ian Keszborn was predicable, but still a fun read and cool concepts. The last story, "Afterdeath" by Leslie S. Rose might just have been the most powerful story in the book. The story had me in its grip, on the edge of my seat and vying for the couple, for a happily ever after. And with a collection like this one, there's no telling whether they got it.

All in all, I enjoyed this short collection of stories and for $0.99, what's to lose? So sit back, relax, and enjoy a little piece of your childhood with an adult twist. You'll be glad you did.
