If you enjoy short stories in fantasy/sci-fi genres, and stories that make you think then look no further than Maberry's tales which will engross you with stories about karma, greed, time travel, aliens and muses.
In this book you will read stories about: a dog with extra sensory perception, a writer battling his own sub-conscience, a wizard who wonders if the spells he casts for others will work for himself, a man who experiences 2 lifetimes by opening a closet door. These are just a few of the stories to stimulate your reading appetite.
Maberry is a prolific writer who knows how to keep a reader captivated till the end and finishes his stories with an unexpected twist. This book also offers an excerpt to the author's next upcoming novel. As in true Maberry style, he leaves us hanging in anticipation with more to come. A great read!
