I love short stories and these are great. Not many books stick in my head as long as short story plots--so they are a bargain in more ways than one. These are little twisted snapshots that keep you thinking long after you have read them. I'm thrilled the authors keep writing these collections! I'd say they are in the vein of Stephen King's short stories, but I like these even better--no offense to Mr. King.

"Dark Crossings" is a compilation of six short stories by authors Sean Platt and David Wright. This Kindle edition was a 327 Kb download and retails for $5.99. These works kind of mimic the old TV series "The Twilight Zone" where an strange tale concluded with an unusual ending. The works are available individually.

Background... I'd become interested in the writings of these two authors after reading their serial thriller, "Yesterday's Gone". An exciting urban sci-fi/fantasy adventure set in modern day America.

The works found in "Dark Crossings" include... general theme <SPOILER> alert

PULL THE TRIGGER -- Ellie gets involve in a caper involving two resort owners: owners with entirely too much time on their hands and more money than they'd ever know what to do with.

CHRIS WAKES UP -- a Zombie tale seen through the eyes of one of the newly infected.

RESPERO DINNER -- reminiscences with Xavier at his farewell dinner extravaganza.

THE VISITOR -- Blind and dying, writer Mary Fletcher has a visitor that offers her a new lease on life... well sort of.

DINER FADED -- an old dilapidated diner in the middle of nowhere gives Zach a glimpse of the past.

* of all the six stories here, 'Diner Faded' is the one that most fits in the mold of the old "Twilight Zone" shows.

THE WATCHER -- Since the brutal death of Jenny, Frank Grimm has lost more that just his young daughter.

Some thoughts...

Quick, easy reading... every tale, although fairly short, moves along at a nice pace. No dragged out dead spots in any of these short pieces.

All tales are well written and superbly focused on unusual and often macabre goings-on.

Written with all the skill and detail of all of their work, Sean Platt & David Wright continue to deliver the thrills and chills with "Dark Crossing:(Short Stories.Killer Endings)" that their readers have have come to expect...and crave.
Six separate tales that have nothing in common other than being a compelling read. Each story had me holding my breath and unable to put it down. This collection is the perfect answer for those times when you don't want to stop reading 'till the end but the real world interferes and you must put the book down. You can read any one of these stories from beginning to end on a coffee break, a lunch hour or just that magic time when you have a few minutes to put your feet up. The one thing I will promise you is that you will be thinking about these "short stories with killer endings" long after you have finished reading.

Platt and Wright give us a wealth of short stories, characters, suspense and Hide-Under-The-Covers Goodness. Well, not so much Hide-Under-The-Covers, but at least Ewww - Weird. You will find six short stories, each from a completely different world or perspective, and each one will keep you turning pages to find out how it turns out, or what the dirty secret is. The writing is solid, even poetical at times. Platt and Wright seem to bring out the best in each other, both in writing style and in content.

The only story that disappointed, for me, was Respero Dinner. I knew what the ending was the minute I started reading. But even that disappointment of suspense was overshadowed by the depth of character and relationships painted by Sean Platt.

The Authors Notes, placed at the end of each story, offered insight into the writing craft. I usually skip over, or dislike, "Forwards" or explanatory material in a book. Give me the story and let it stand on its own. But these Authors Notes gave me an Inside Baseball look into the creation and collaboration process of Platt and Wright.

All in all, well done. An excellent read, and a good introduction to some amazing authors. Looks like there's a full plate of Platt and Wright books and serials to check out. See you later!

I am not usually a big fan of short stories, I am more of a "longer the better" sort of girl. However, I am a HUGE fan of these two authors, if you haven't tried any of their material you are missing out. Well written, sharp, entertaining fiction with a twist sums these guys up perfectly.

Sean Platt and David Wright are two of the most AWESOME suspense writers out there! I was entranced by these shorts with their twisted endings...truly Twilight Zone bound, these tales. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection as much as I have all their other titles. Their characters are vivid. The settings are true. But most importantly, they smack you in the face when you least expect it. As with all of their works, this is an ABSOLUTE must-have for your eReader!
