5.0 out of 5 stars Scribner is the O'Henry of supernatural tales May 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Joshua Scribner is an excellent short story writer. I think of him as the O'Henry of the bizarre and supernatural. As with O'Henry, his tales have surprise endings. Some of his books of short stories have themes and this one focuses on thoughts. The following is a summary of the plots of eight stories in this book.
In Sending Help, Jackson tries to hide something from his past. Then, years later, he thinks that he has an opportunity to feel better about the past and redeem himself. But does he? Devon in Agent Blue is mentally subjected to something and thinks it is enemy gas. Levi is taken to Alaska by his parents in Missing Letters and discovers in school that things are not what they seem to be. In Voices, Dr. Trevor, a very intelligent man, hears voices that tell him what to do. He goes to a psychologist to persuade her to do what the voices want. In Closed Eyes, a psychiatric nurse tells her boyfriend that a patient has gotten into her mind. Someone increases a psychologist's ability in Magnify. A bartender thinks he understand reality in Signal. Fed Perception is a story based on the question: Does believing make the believed item real?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Compilation from Scribner December 15, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of Joshua Scribner's short stories, and have enjoyed many of them. In previous reviews, I have said he must have a sick and twisted mind which for a horror writer is a good thing as it keeps your content fresh. Morbid-sounding, I agree; if you think about it for a while, you will find it is the right context. In my opinion, he has a lot of Stephen King in his writing of short stories.

This is a nice compilation to read during your lunch break at work (which is what I did), and the five stories take about 10-15 minutes total to read. They are not horror stories per se, but they do have some of the elements as well as shadings of Stephen King: he gets you thinking with these medical / science stories. What I like about Scribner's stories is he doesn't waste any time and gets you involved fast in the underlying story - he gets to the point, tells the tale, and brings home the conclusion. As I type this review, the Kindle version is being offered for free - grab it now before it has a price on it. I'm looking forward to reading more from Scribner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short stories with little or no resolution May 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy oddities of fiction without much explanation or context, this collection may be right for you. As for myself, I felt frustrated to encounter situation after situation without a satisfactory explanation or resolution.

2.0 out of 5 stars What's in your head April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not at all what I was expecting. Didn't take long to get bored of it and give up on reading. Perhaps if I could have powered through this would be a different review but I just couldn't stay awake.
