While The Things That Grow With Us was more science fiction driven horror, Anderson focuses more on cosmic, paranormal, and primordial horror in For A Glimpse Beyond the Terminus. Each story is different than the last, fueled by a plethora of different driven protagonists with several motivations: sexual, terror, strange curiosity, and so forth.
My favorite story in this collection is "Under and In and So It All Begins," while "Master" is a close second.
Usually with short story collections, they end up being a bit of mixed bag, with some excellent stories, some mediocre ones and one or two that are not so great. With For A Glimpse Beyond The Terminus, none of the stories really fell into the latter category – some stories were excellent, some were mediocre, but there wasn’t a single one that I didn’t like.
“The Midnight Baby” and “Master” were my two favorite stories in the collection. I also really liked the plot of “The Harem Within” and how it was executed. Perhaps my least favorite was “Under and In and So It All Begins”, but several other reviewers mentioned that as their favortie, which just shows you can’t argue with taste.
Author Jordan R. Anderson has the uncanny ability to sketch his character’s personality in a matter of minutes, like a painter bringing a portrait to life in just a few brushstrokes, and he masterfully creates an eerie, unsettling atmosphere in all of his stories.
I just finished this one, and I’m already looking forward to the next collection! I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
The nine stories in "Beyond the Terminus,"tell tales of death. A man eats the souls of those he makes love to, another escapes his miserable life for the apocalypse of another dimension.
Blood gut and ruin, the perfect tropes of the storyteller.
Short story writing is a unique art in that the author has less than 8000 words to write a fully standing story.
This can be a frustrating endeavor so it makes me happy writers like Anderson are accomplishing much with it. I look forward to reading more of his work as he publishes it.
