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.
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!)
Felix Was Here: Awesome alternate future story with deep characterization and a strong psychological conflict. It didn't end all tied up with a bow, but the conclusion was satisfying.
Rainers: Dual dimensions. Alter one aspect of reality, and what do you get? Definitely an interesting premise and a fun adventure. (Beware rainstorms, eh?)
WIN: An alternate reality where most everyone relies on a chip implant to obtain knowledge, but what happens if that infrastructure crumbles? I really liked the focus of this story--the focus on the one.
Ground Zero: Alternate reality. The build of tension in this story was great. I wanted it to keep going after that very last page.
The Mirror People: Can you imagine if your life was tied to someone's on the other side of the glass? High concept dual dimensions. I personally love this one.
EVER-TON: Sci-fi-ish futuristic premise. Privileged only gets you so far, but what happens when your favor with the upper echelons ends? A fun read with a meaningful conclusion.
Folds in Life and Death: Super interesting concepts here. I was fascinated by the magic of this alternate world.
The Seventeen: Medical thriller of a completely unique nature. This was cool--the angle taken and I loved how this one resolved itself.
Scrying the Plane: VR takes a new extreme. Fun sibling rivalry/love and a journey to anything being possible.
Haunted: I struggled to connect the threads in this story, guessing and scratching my head until the very end. Definitely a strong note to leave the book on, one that kept me thinking long after its conclusion.
Overall, a very worthwhile collection.
Content warning: Some language. Minor violence.
