My collection of anthologies has tripled in the last year and Tick Tock: Seven Tales of Time is a perfect example of why.
There are seven short stories all based on a theme; in this case, time. I was originally going to post just a mini review, but each of the stories are so good and so unique, I need to touch on each separately:
Suicide High (Corinne O'Flynn) - Rather good take on the traditional ghost story. A student who can see spirits--and the specters know it. It's a good old fashioned 'who dun nit' as well, all pulled of nicely.
Countdown Cafe (Kristi Helvig) - The tactile sense of this story was, well, palatable. I felt everything that happened. Saw where this one was heading, but didn't care, it was that good. Finished it while in a bakery, funny enough.
Jesse's Girl (Rebecca Taylor) - This evil little story scared the living crap out of me. Every wake up and not know where you are or what you've done? Awesome stuff...
Duo'ver (Sue Duff) - The first Science Fiction entry. Hated the female character at first, but that's what makes the transformation so much more impactful. A little slow at first, but grabbed me for the entire ride.
The Door (Shawn McGuire) - A spooky tale that follows the choices of the main character. You'll never look at a door quite the same way again.
The Fate Stone (Wendy Terrien) - Asylum stories always freak me out--I grew up near a massive (and abandoned) insane asylum, so I approached this one with a bit of trepidation. Then suddenly, it was over. This story is a rollercoaster...!
Untimely (A.G. Henley) - Ah. The Time Travel Story. Was expecting this one, and it did not disappoint! Like The Fate Stone, this is a fast-paced, wonderful tale that seamlessly spans timeframes. Great anchor story and a marvelous way to end the anthology.
This is a marvelous set of stories by wonderful authors. I have since picked up additional works from the scribes...and I haven't been disappointed yet. Neither will you.
