The photographs in TRIPTYCHS inspired the authors well, for there was a marvelous diversity of themes in the stories and poetry. As a whole, the multi-genre stories and the poetry are whimsically refreshing, mysteriously chilling, and psychologically rich. They come from authors whose genres include drama, romance, intrigue, mystery, fantasy, crime thrillers, paranormal, and horror.
During my read, I was totally engaged by my up-close and personal encounters with a vast array of characters: sisters and an unexpected stranger, fathers and daughters, husbands and wives, the bully and the bullied, mermaids, and otherworldly entities. There are some skillfully written stories that became special because of their themes: choices made that result in empowerment, transitions relating to relationships, transitions concerning death, deformity and love that transcends death, and life lessons effected by mystical influences.
It was interesting to read the variety of stories and experience the various styles in writing. For the most part, the quality of writing was excellent. In a few stories, I felt that more detail, more vivid transitions, could have enlivened the plot. There was only one story whose stylistic choice was too uncomfortable to read.
The short stories cover a range of genres: there are tales of horror and crime and vampires, as well as romance and fantasy. All the stories and poems are well-written, and each one has something special to grab your interest and capture your imagination. I found it very hard to put down this book once I started reading: I kept wanting to know what kind of story would be next.
I love this series! Every time I open a new book from this series I'm thrilled because I know I'm about to read from new authors and ones I already love. I see some beautiful photography and read meaningful poetry. The stories are different from one another, different styles, dark, romance, mystical and the poems are mind blowing. There are 13 authors, photographers in this book, each story meticulously written for your reading pleasure, "pleasure "you will get from this book. There are short stories, some longer ones, I loved each one, I loved everything about this book. It's hard to have a favorite when there's such great authors, you'll have to read it to see what I mean. I know I found new authors in this series, you will to. Whoever came up with this concept is genius! So much talent in this series. They keep it fresh by adding new authors to every book.
As before, the photographs were provided by Martin David Porter and Helle Gade. The latter and Ben Ditmars contributed poetry, while short stories were written by Jason McIntyre, J.Michael Radcliffe, Maria Savva, Darcia Helle, Jay Finn, Eden Baylee, Lisette Brodey, Marc Nash, Julie Elizabeth Powell and Geoffrey David West.
A variety of genres are represented in this excellent book. There is fantasy, horror, contemporary fiction, as well as poetry.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this wonderful variety of short works and it has certainly whetted my appetite to read more by these writers. I’m looking forward to buying a paperback copy, as the full beauty of the photographs can then be appreciated.
An excellent book, which I recommend to lovers of short stories, poetry and photography!
Although I am not a great reader of short fictional pieces, I was drawn to the collection initially because I am familiar with the writers Eden Baylee and Maria Savva who contributed to the project. Like many of these multi-author collections, the contents were something of a curate's egg. Not all of the pieces were of the same writing quality, and in my opinion the inclusion of short poems was something that detracted from the reading experience. I did, however, discover at least one writer (Jay Finn) whose works I will explore further.
Overall, I am inclined to give 'Triptychs' a brave four stars for experimentation.
