There are many great stories contained within Someone Wicked, but my favorite is "The Semi-Aquatic Blue Baker of Borneo" by Justynn Tyme. This story just goes to prove that too much is never enough. A wonderfully sustained absurdist time-shifter that leaves the reader perilously little "reality" to cling to. In fact, I think that the salting of mundanity it does contain is put there just to make the reader think he or she may not be going mad after all! Though it is a short story, it reads in somewise not unlike David Wong's John Dies At The End, but further afield - and by that I mean left field!
Anyroad, enjoy this great collection,

There was only one story in the entire collection I did not like but I didn't allow that to diminish my overall positive feeling for the book as a whole.
Some of my own personal standouts:
Reckonings by Gail Husch - A fantastic tale of evil people being repaid for their little acts of disrespect. How many of us wish we could act like this in our real lives? I know I do...
Missing by Jim Reinbold - Gripping, terrifying and sad. This races down the halls of scary things.
Sometimes the Good Witch Sings to Me by LL Soares - Awesome concept and what a thrill ride. This is a tale to rival even the best of this collection. The hint at the end will drive readers mad with wondering.
The Devil Inside by Shannon Connor - This is golden. It just leaves me wanting more. And the ending is a real head scratcher. It seems as if this would do much better as a longer piece with much more content.
And my two favorite stories:
Right Hand Man by Weldon Burge - The editor of the book delivers one of the best in the collection. This is the #2 story in the entire thing. Burge knows exactly what he's doing in the telling of stories about crime, the mob, and killing. Need to read more by this author.
Mirror Mirror by Chantal Noordeloos - This is the creme de la creme. I will never sleep in the dark again. The shadows in my mirror will forever haunt me and make me doubt even my own reflection. This here is a first rate terror tale teller.
