This collection of stories is great for short flights or a good read before bed. Read one story, ten, or read them all at once. I am very excited for this series to continue.
Elective and selective memory loss is certainly an interesting premise, and it was interesting to see the different ways the different authors treated this same premise, but I'd have to say this was quite a mixed bag. There were some that were really great stories, with interesting twists, and some that really weren't.
Ideally you'd have as many plot ideas/twists as you did short stories in a book like this, but I felt that there were some devices which were repeated a couple too many times. Other stories just didn't grab me. If it had been cut down by a few stories (the right few, that is), I think this would have been a lot better.
Personally, I prefer books to be without swearing, and some of the authors here put a lot of it in their short stories.
The IndiePENdents ran from December 2011 until February 2016. The organization was the brainchild of Jasha M. Levi, (1921- 2013), Author of 'The Last Exile' et al.
Evaluations were made on already published, independently published, books.
Three 'evaluators' passed books that met basic objective standards of spelling, grammar, punctuation, and formatting. Those passing were awarded "The IndiePENdents Seal".
This book was awarded seal number 10012212
I would have backed this project anyway, had I known how nice and efficient Matthew Hance was, he who started this anthology. He kept us updated on the progress of the book, the funding, and the general process of it all. I felt like I was part of the project, which was a nice feeling.
For some reason, I wasn't expecting much when I received my book. I started reading it while eating lunch, thinking I'd read a story or two because I had things to do while my son slept. So, I read a story, then two.
The stories were beautifully written, they sucked you in, spit you out, then sucked you back in again. The illustrations were AMAZING, and I would take a break from one story to just stare at the drawings, stare and wonder about the next story.
A huge round of applause to everyone who brought this book together, writers, artists, Matthew and everyone else. I HIGHLY recommend this anthology. You won't be disappointed.
I bought this on a whim for 99c, and must say its one of the best 99c books I've read.
All of the short stories are different, and approach the theme from a different angle.
Most enjoyable was the basic premise in each story: "... what would happen if.....?". Quite suspenseful!
With the unexpected twists you won't be disappointed.
(And, my, what an unattractive cover!)
