Not all the stories are as polished as others and there were occasions I skipped ahead, but those that shone made the entire read worthwhile. I didn't even make it to the end before I was looking up specific authors and adding their longer works to my ever growing to be read pile.
This is a good read for anyone in the mood to try out new authors with a taste for short stories on the darker side.
It was also a really great way to find new authors to purchase books from. Since there are 20 contributing authors, you’re sure to find a few with a writing style you enjoy! Although they were all good stories, my favorites were:
Passion by Jennifer Ruff - definitely going to be ordering more of her books ASAP!
The Clearer , Fireflies, and The Blind Tattooist by Allison Maruska - will be looking for more stories by her as well!
The Death of Mrs Billen and The Water Castle by Dan Alatorre - already have An Angel On Her Shoulder to start next! He’s great!
Betrayal by Annette Robinson - she’s on my list for reading soon!
Jack and Mary by Christine Valentor - I really enjoyed her writing style
You can’t beat .99 cents and the book was amazing!
I hope to see more of these anthologies!
I don't recall any compilation I've read in the distant past bringing forth the range of emotions that these did, and believe me I'm too old for hormones to have played a part in that!
The majority of stories in "The Box Under The Bed" left me with a variety of feelings that ranged from "good job!", "cool concept!", some 'neat-o' chills and shivers, and sometimes a simple nod of appreciation.
Three, which I won't name because reader opinions vary, left me cold and feeling as if they were cut off abruptly, with no ending. I got the feeling that they were part of a longer story and were aimed to make me scurry to find the book they were exerpted from so a sale could be made. To be honest, they pissed me off. One exception was "The Death of Mrs. Billens" by Dan Alatorre. That was taken from "An Angel On Her Shoulder" and at the end, that was noted. I enjoyed it when I read the book and equally enjoyed it when I re-read it.
Not all paranormal stories are scary, and there were a couple that were truly heart warming, and brought sentimental tears to my eyes. No spoilers, though, so I won't name them. See for yourself.
My absolute favorite was "The Clearer" by Allison Maruska. I loved that story and character so much that I sincerely wish it had been made into a novel. I'd love to get to know main character Sasha more and can envision how her life before and after the short story could be woven into a delightful mystery and adventure. I've considered begging.
Do yourself a favor and spend some time with these pieces of art if only to see if you agree with me! I'd love to hear if you do!
