My least favorite story was "The Dragon is in the Details" because it was all dialogue, only dialogue. The most interesting was "The Incident at the West Flatte Dairy Queen" because it threw a strong curve ball of perspective. I was surprised by the turn of events in "Flesh and Blood". And...8 other stories that are quirky in their own right.
As with any collection, there are some stories that tend to stick out. Perhaps the best of this bunch is "Razor" by Will Swardstrom. The piece seems like a typical story of a man trying to deal with the loss of a relationship, but takes a very unexpected turn which will leave readers' jaws dropped open at the end. "Dead Zone" by Hannah Elizabeth is another story that sticks with the reader -- it's a page turning suspense story in which the main characters square off with maniacal antagonists. "The Dawning" by Allison M. Dickson is what originally drew me to the collection as a fan of her work, and her contribution doesn't disappoint. Renee goes on a blind date looking for love, and while that's difficult to attain in normal situations, she's living in a world where corporations have created artificial humans who often can pass for the real thing. Her date seems to be a great option, but of course, there's a twist.
The great thing about Terrible Cherubs is that there aren't any weak entries. While not a fan of some of the genres included, I nevertheless found the stories that fit those areas quite entertaining. For folks who like short fiction collections, this is a good one.
Looking over the stories included, it seems some kind of unifying theme behind the stories would serve the anthology format better.
