"Where the first story of the anthology is a slow, creaky climb to the top of the roller coaster, the following four are a stomach-in-throat thrill ride that begins straight off the curve. The horror shelf is an ambitious place for a debut author to start but if Ékleipsis is where Wino has set the bar, I am excited to see what comes next."
― Asher Syed for Readers' Favorite
"Ékleipsis is the collection of short horror stories that blurs the line between reality and fantasy. Provocative, clever characters lead these unpredictable, suspenseful short stories that lovers of horror will revel at."
― The Book Review Directory
"Each one of these stories could be turned into a gripping novel. The storylines are never dull and the dialogues just flowed beautifully. If you love Roald Dahl's Tales Of The Unexpected or the Twilight Zone, then you are going to love Ékleipsis by Tamel Wino"
― Lesley Jones for Readers' Favorite
From the Back Cover
Stories of downfall are imprinted on our human psyche. Beginning with Eve and Paradise Lost, we have unrepentantly chosen to abandon the good and the certain for the fascinating, the pleasurable, and the nefarious.
Ékleipsis is a collection of short stories that exposes ordinary people battling their perverse needs and desires, and the destruction caused when downfall consumes you.
Full of complex and darkened souls, these tales ask just how much havoc a desperate person can wreak. How far will someone go to realize their darkest fantasies? And, in doing so, will their worst habits and baser instincts ultimately destroy not only themselves but everyone around them?

Due to the length and lack of thoroughness of short stories, I usually find it hard to connect with the stories and characters, but that wasn't a problem with this collection. I found the execution of the characterisation and plot cleverly done and very in depth. It was certainly a collection marked by thoroughness and accuracy. It's a pity the plot was so predictable as I would have enjoyed it so much more if I wasn't able to foretell what was around the corner. I was waiting to be surprised, but that didn't happen for me. Despite the lack of surprise, I found it exciting to delve into the minds of these characters and the world they inhabit.
There were a few sentences in the collection that were well put, but there was one line in All-In that jumped out at me that just loved. It goes: "Even a broken clock is right twice a day; it's a fact."
It's a well-written collection full of excitement and intrigue.
Wino (great name btw) writes insightful, engaging prose that pulls the reader into the minds and souls of his characters. What really makes these stories interesting is that these protagonists are not nice people. Or, maybe they once were nice, but life has just beat them down and now they have … changed — crossing over a line marking the point of no return. Just pray you don’t meet any of these characters when they are having a bad day.
This is a fairly quick read, under 200 pages, consisting of five different stories. I would categorize this as true psychological horror because the terror I felt was more in anticipation of what was coming, rather than from the shock of blood and gore. There are a few gory scenes but definitely not so much that it overpowers the subtle uneasiness that builds slowly to a shocking climax in each story.
Pleasantly surprised! Will look for more from Wino!
It’s a compilation of short stories that stay with you longer than it took you to read them
There are five stories and each one is, I would say dedicated to some kind of human darkness. Some of them are mostly predictive, as people usually are with its behavior. But the way they are written is what it counts here and therefore I would say that they are written good, especially "When in doubt" and the last one "All in". For me, those two have something special in them, something which caught me in their web, and therefore, they are my favorites.
Read and chose yours.
A Dark, sinister, and eerily unexpected gem!
I enjoyed most of the stories in this book, but a couple I found to be a bit dull with hard to like characters.
