The writing varies from pretty darn good to breathtaking. Not a single one let me down. And the stories tend to be longer. While I enjoy really short stories, a really detailed story can't be told in three or four pages. A story like Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily" can be told in four pages, but these stories are delicious and involving enough to savor for a lot longer. They're not too long; on the contrary, we don't want them to end.
Five honest stars, no inflation. JB
I also loved the Kennedy conspiracy. I visited the tower and the grassy knoll many years ago and tried to picture the events as they must have occurred, and the tale in this book actually struck a note of truth. I don't recall any drainage areas from my visit, but if they're really there, this is the most likely scenario that I've ever heard.
Kudos to all of the writers in this book--well done!
"I will give you what you need so that the whole world will buy it-- hook, line, and sinker. No one's gonna know what we did here"
"They can listen. We don't know what they're capable of"
"As I will relate to you, I have evidence to fear for my own safety, which is why I feel compelled to write down this secret history"
Just a small sampling of passages from these dozen tales that kept me engaged long past midnight one evening. So often these anthologies are composed of lesser writers looking for a way to break out from the pack - not the case here. All these authors are proven, having written scores of other fine books making the choice of a personal favorite that much more difficult. But if I had to choose just one, I'd have to say I really enjoyed "That's a Wrap from the Sea of Tranquility" by Eric Tozzi for both for the twist at the end and great exchanges of dialogue like this passage, "Nice job, McNixon." "Thanks," I say, "So what's next. Mars?" He doesn't smile when he says this; "Don't be cute, McNixon. Remember our agreement. We'll know if you break it."
You'll probably have a tough time picking a favorite, too, but with handy links from the table of contents allowing you to access any of the tales in any order you choose at least that's one reason it's made a bit easier...or is it? Very good collection and I do recommend!
