In solitude, and comforted in the shadowy recesses of obsession, we, too, are invited to share in the insatiable craving the narrator has for this mysterious bookstore-find simultaneously “a book that hummed with life” and “felt dead” reciprocated voraciously by the artifact itself for narrator and reader alike. But what makes this story unique is the trepidation that unfolds not within the pages of Consumption as the narrator struggles to make sense of it, but the thoughts that race through his mind reminding us that the perhaps the thing that frightens us the most are the things we cannot hide or run from. That the one thing that consumes and is consumed, our self-made ouroboros, eternally alive and eternally dead, regret.

Monsters under your bed: “Beware most the ones that hide. They’re the ones that will get you in their claws, their teeth gnawing on your bones. Remember this when crawling into bed tonight, no matter how old you are.” – Jason White
Do you remember waking up in the middle of the night, as a young child in your own bedroom, alone, except for your crowd of stuffed animals; goosebumps up and down your arms; hair on the back of your neck standing at attention?
You could have sworn you heard an unusual sound emanating from your closet OR from under your bed. You quaked in fear and hid under the bed covers, nothing was going to get you out of bed! No Siree! No Way! No How!
Maybe it was a disembodied voice whispering your name over and over again?
OR you felt a cold clammy cloud of air caressing your body?
The main genres represented in this Astounding Anthology are: urban fantasy, horror and science fiction. The ingeniousness and brilliance of each story is an authentic treat for the reader’s intellect and is a compliment to the expert editors!
It is impossible for me to just pick one of these yarns as my favorite; each one prowled my dreams, held such ingenuity, adventure, excitement, and a sense of authentic reality morphing into fantasy.
However, Beautiful Booklover, I never reveal spoilers, as I hold too much esteem for you to ever spoil a story!
At the end of the Astounding Anthology are Author Biographies in alphabetical order, where one can probe further into the authors’ background and obtain their contact information as well as find other stories and books they have previously written.
I personally recommend you read them with the lights on OR if you are brave by candlelight in a dark house, all alone!
I am an independent ARC reader reviewer blogger and I originally received this novel free from the publisher and I chose to voluntarily review it.
I liked all of these stories a lot. There were a few that I had a little trouble getting into at first but as I kept reading, they turned to fascination. Then there were a few stories that I couldv'e cried when they ended. I really wanted more of them. I'm hoping these stories will someday become books and I would buy them immediately. Crossroads in the Dark III: Monsters under your Bed has all kinds of monsters, scary, in your head, and then some that are as real as your own friends or family. This was an incredible book and I highly recommend it.
