My favorite was "Haunted" I think because of the surprise and feeling it left. I love the effect it had on me, in some ways it affected me the same way the movie "Sixth Sense" did the first time I saw it.
I was hooked from the first page, propelled through the rest of the story to the end. I also liked The "Mirror People" and "Scrying Plane" and "Rainers" very interesting stories. Different. For short stories, these were fun, interesting and compelling reads.
I received this ARC copy free for an honest review. I am definitely going to check some of these authors other works too.
Many of the stories feel like they should be part of a longer story. The endings leave things a little unresolved, making the reader want more. Rainer and Ground Zero are good examples of these.
Parallels is a good book for those who enjoy sci-fi and are looking for a quick, interesting read.
First is FELIX WAS HERE, by L. G. Keltner. In the past was war, influenza, and economic catastrophe, but the future brings hope. And then a baby is born, named Felix.
The second story is RAINERS, by Sandra Cox. A girl is caught in a rainstorm while climbing a mountain and seeks shelter in a cave where she finds a wolf and her pup. Her troubles are just beginning.
Third, we have WIN by Sylvia Ney. In this story, when a person turns 55, they have two choices: commit suicide or let a “second” do it for you. What choices, huh?
The next story is GROUND ZERO by Michael Abayomi. In this story, people live in a dome that shelters them from the dust and fallout of the bomb that destroyed New York City. Weird stuff happens, as you can imagine.
THE MIRROR PEOPLE, by Crystal Collier, is a tale of a man looking into a mirror and seeing his reverse identity in another realm. If that’s not scary enough, the man is a killer, and he can’t break away because they’ll both die.
In EVER-TON, by Yolanda Renee, people are leaving their dying planet, but there is a catch to who gets to leave.
Then there’s FOLDS IN LIFE AND DEATH, by Cherie Reich, where an armed drone has bombed the White House. Did the president survive? This story also has a curse that’s interesting.
THE SEVENTEEN, by Hart Johnson, is about medical breakthroughs. Have you heard of “biochemical cleanse”? If not, you’ll find out what it is in this story.
Next there’s SCRYING THE PLANE, by Tamara Narayan. How about a ride in a VRP, virtual reality plane? Strange things are happening.
HAUNTED, by Melanie Schulz, is a story about “nothingness.” When you read the story, you’ll understand.
So, whether your reading time is limited or you have all the time in the world to read, this anthology is the book for you. Happy reading.
However, thanks to one of the stories, I may never look at a mirror in quite the same way again. (I never DID trust them... the older I get, the more they LIE!)
