"Tales from the Canyons," is a delightful chill binding addition for all who love an intense, thought provoking tale.
Enjoy each short parable that will entice from the first story until the last. 5 stars for the five authors!
D.K. Cassidy’s “103 Days” – Retiring in 103 days, Helen is a nurse who’s superstitious and isolative from her peers at work. As we learn the origins of her beliefs through flashbacks, we also learn something startling about the fate of the planet! How these seemingly two separate stories intersect in a touching and surprising way makes for a stirring tale filled with character and the power of personal convictions.
Jason LaVelle’s “Keep Rolling” – Kendra is a contestant on a game show that showcases her survival skills in the middle of the jungle. But when something bad happens that’s against the rules, the natives of the jungle get angry! This tale made me both laugh with the situation she faced and the terror it induced as the situation she’s stuck in escalates from humorous to horrific in all of the worst ways that you can imagine and even those you cannot.
Jon Frater’s “Hazard to Navigation” – Emma and Sam drive out to a distant clear spot to watch an unprecedented celestial event. As they talk about it, it becomes clear that this event is an atypical one, no matter what you might think the situation is. How the event occurred and what’s being done to remedy it is only part of the mystery that entranced me in its story, made me laugh with its satirical depiction of a government leader and the completely unexpected revelations with the truth.
Paul K. Swardstrom’s “Hugo King vs. The Many Menacing Minions of the Malevolent Menace Doctor Chicago” – Hugo is a business magnate wielding enormous influence in the community whose girlfriend Glory is in some trouble. She’s been found by Dr. Chicago and that is only the beginning of their problems when Hugo tries to save her! The title itself highlights only some of the true zaniness hiding inside this tale, where the story gets stranger with each scene and the enemies they struggle with. But it also keeps you chortling in uproarious laughter when it’s aware of its own crazy and continues down a road of creative lunacy. A delightful and quite original tale from word one right to the end.
Daniel Arthur Smith’s “The Lost Tapes – Jack Carter” – Professor Carter is being interviewed by special agents investigating a murder of his young research assistant, Emily, as they both work together at the Stem Cell Research Institute. So, who is the murderer and why? As the suspense mounts, all the little clues add up into something you’ll never suspect with an audacious ending and interesting science underlying this tale.
These are all strong and heartfelt stories with character as a focus and the weird, strange, frightening, and unusual events that happen to them. They are motivated by love, greed, conviction and selfishness and a desire for peace which grounds these stories in the real world and making them hit home emotionally. The Canyons collections haven't disappointed me yet and with stories like these, it continues to stoke my desire to read more of them, as they showcase a variety of talent and storytelling styles.
