It's even better when the vast majority are great stories. Each one is starkly different from the last in the best possible way. One minute you are in a barn with dueling magicians, then next you are in a stark in gritty future. From space travel to a shut off island receiving supply by boat.
I really liked Man-maker, (already bought more from the author BC Woods, even though its clearly a departure from the story here) other stand outs were The Star-Eater, Cube, and By a Whisker.
Also I have to mention The Accidental Muse, which had me reading a type of story I normally wouldn't, and really digging it.
All and all a very solid collection!
I would recommend buying this book just for the simple reason that all proceeds go to RIF (Reading is Fundamental) which helps bring the joy of reading to children across the country, but happily, there are other reasons to pick this book up as well. Twelve-Worlds has a little something for lovers of paranormal, fantasy and science fiction alike. Some of the stories will make you laugh out loud as the characters scramble to set things right, and others will make you think about such things as a world without music or the need for vengeance and its cost. There were several stories in the anthology that stood out for me:
By a Whisper by Kevin O. McLaughlin was the story of a young man sent to stop a magician from setting free an evil that would not only destroy, but forever torture, an entire community. The main character is charming and engaging and I would love to read more about his adventures. Not to mention the adventures of the cat who helps to save the day.
The Accidental Muse by Amy Rose Davis was a lovely story of music and love in a world where music is controlled by gods who can wreak havoc or give joy. The writing was sweet and the ending was just how it should have been.
Together They Die by Brian Drake was a supernatural tale of a ghost who needed to be set free from her hold on this plane. With the help of two determined detectives and a psychic, the ghost gets her revenge but all does not end well. It would have been interesting to read about other adventures these men had.
The Star Eater by K Gorman was a tale of stars, not the Hollywood kind, the space kind. Stars with magic and the bodies of humans.Read more ›
