I liked reading Journeys of Wonder because it gave me something different in each story. The writing is awesome, the stories were totally different each time. Some dark, scary, others kind of morbid, some stories left you in shock. I loved two short stories in particular titled The Door, which happens to be the first one in the book. Second one I really liked was titles Infinity, I then also noticed they were from the same author. Not to say that all the stories I didn't enjoy as I really enjoyed reading them all, just those 2 were my favorite.
This book is a short read with hopefully alot more to come. I also thought that the cover was very inviting, the authors stayed true to the genre with this cover! Liked it!!! This is a must read especially for Halloween coming up if you want a good scare!
In the story The Door, which happens to be my favorite, I really just thought about the Saw at first, people locked in a room with something they were all trying to figure out to get to the conclusion. About mid-story I figured out what was going on but the play out of that story was completely mind-blowing. Made me stop at the end and think I hope that is not how it goes in real life.
There are many stories that leave you thinking WOW, I pictured an ending totally different. That's what I loved about Journeys of Wonder!!
Things I did not like about the book
Shortness of some of the stories, I have read short stories from Edgar Allan Poe before so I know that some leave you wanting more and that is just what this book did, but I need more in some of the stories. Technically this is not a bad point but as good as this book was I had to pick something I didn't like about it!
I hope that there is more to these volumes soon, because if you are a horror/scary genre person like myself you too will love this book.
I received this book FREE from the author for a 100% honest review
The Door had a poetic appeal with the use of a repeated story element and a slow, yet well-paced revelation of what the door symbolizes. In Infinity, Ian Kezbom tackles a well-worn theme--time travel, but handles it with with a fresh twist, leaving the reader in a time loop. Blackout and Eye of the Wolf by Lisa Gail Green raise the bar on horror in fantasy, and you can't stop reading until "The End." Even after you close your eBook, you have the feeling there's still something in the shadows she hasn't revealed. Leslie Rose's love story, Afterdeath, takes place in a world where death is as much a part of a relationship as life, and she builds an amazing world that's teeming with captivating images.
Review copy provided by an author.
+The Door - Great opener for the anthology - they're trapped in the same room, but whats the connection between the six occupants?
+Blackout - More of a straightforward horror story - the leering neighbor with a dark secret
+Infinity - Strong science fiction story - time travel can be tough, and this does it well in a short space - I can see this expanding out into a novella easily.
+Eye of the Wolf - great twist on a popular horror/genre topic
+Afterdeath - The great beyond in the far future, and a great way to end the first edition - the strange terminology might throw readers not used to reading science fiction short stories, but I loved it.
Great work by all the authors!

Each story was very engaging and kept me reading eager to reach the end to find out what happened. I am looking forward to the next volume.Published on September 8, 2013 by Kindle Customer
All quality stories, and definitely worth the 99c price tag.
I will be reading their future anthologies, as this one was worth my time and imagination.
You never know how any of these stories will end...the twist hits you right at the end and it makes for an interesting read.Published on April 10, 2013 by Rebel G.
I should just learn not to bother with short stories, I'm nearly always disappointed. I have read a few good sci-fi ones though, so I'm every hopeful. Read morePublished on January 14, 2013 by Emma

Most of them even left you wanting more, which is a good thing in my opinion. Read more
I thought that the stories were too predictable. They were sort of like Twilight Zone retreads. The writing was good.Published on January 2, 2013 by Robert Mullins
At first, I wasn't so sure about this book because of the cover. The cover reminded me of the stories I used to read as a kid. Read morePublished on November 26, 2012 by the eternal scribe
Journeys of Wonder Volume 1 is a great compilation of stories worthy of the original Twilight Zone series! I especially enjoyed "Infinity" and "Eye of the Wolf."Published on October 23, 2012 by Shirley
