Every so often, Rob sets up a challenge to write on a theme, or prompted by a graphic, and The Mysterious Dr. Ramsey, a collection of 82 fictions by 80 different writers is the result of one of his latest challenges, and what a superb collection it is. I'm not just saying that because I have been graced with a page in the book, nor because so many of the friends I have made on the network appear along with me. This is a truly outstanding collection, presenting as many different takes on the photo prompt of a mysterious woman and the name Dr. Ramsey as there are stories. Each one is unique and of a high caliber of writing.
Dr. Ramsey sometimes appears in these stories as a male, sometimes as a female, and sometimes the doctor is merely incidental to the tale, or is something other than human. Eighty writers let their imagination run wild, and reading through their work, you will rarely be disappointed. There is some nuance to every piece that lifts it out of the ordinary.
Some names you may not be familiar with yet, but soon should be: Bob Clay, Sal Buttaci, Paul de Denus, Peter McNiff, Bill Lapham, JM Prescott, Grey Johnson, Rod Drake, Gita Smith, Joe Gensle, Nicole E. Hirschi, Teresa Cortez, Jared Culpepper, oh, the list goes on and on. You should buy the book and become familiar with all these writers. It's money well invested as you will find yourself returning again and again to savor your favorites.
If you're a writer, and you enjoy crafting tight little tales, you should look into joining the Six Sentence Social Network. You might find yourself in the next collection. To all readers: There are several 6S collections now in print, and all offer quality flash fiction, but without a doubt The Mysterious Dr. Ramsey is one of the best.
all revolve around the theme of the title with many different takes on the concept. it has some published others as well as some brand new writers published for the first time ever .
it great for a nice long read but you can easily put it down and get back into it because of the flash style !
