I won’t single out an individual author, because they are all wonderful, but I will say the story that sticks with me the most involves a dream, where the dreamer, after waking, feels a desperate urge to travel deep into the desert, to visit his grandfather. This story reminds me of different accounts in The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda. If you’ve read any of Mr. Castaneda’s work, you’ll know that I’m referring to parallel dimensions within our own reality, and in our dreaming.
For anyone who enjoys an eclectic mix of stories, this anthology is the perfect go-to read.
Even for those of you who don’t typically delve into short story collections, I believe that “You’re Not Alone” will be a pleasant surprise. Best of all, the net profits are donated to the Macmillan Cancer Support. I honestly can’t imagine a better cause.
In order of the last stories in 'You're not Alone,' Ooh Air Margrit by Rebecca Bryn, compliments her most recent novel, 'Where Hope Dares,' and a couple of other published books that she has written. Babes, by Max Power, is a bittersweet story as heartfelt as his most recent-honored novel, 'Little Big Boy,' nestled between other horrific books written by the author. 'The Last Goodbyes,' by Paul Ruddock empathetically touches a family death experience, narrated by the father as he and his children say their goodbyes to a mother and wife. Paul Ruddock's book, 'Not What You Thought and Other Surprises,' comes out soon with all the royalties donated to charity. 'A Stitch In Time,' by SK Holmesley, gives a taste of creativity in the cross-genre "Taggert House" book series. Author, Eric Lahti, wrote 'A Day Late, Dollar Short,' and is a glimpse into the dream world, also giving the reader a glimpse into Eric Lahti's style of prose featured in his many books included in the "Henchmen Series." S.E. Meyer has written many Sci-Fi books in the "Origins Series," and his short story, 'Love In An Elevator,' in this Anthology portrays the same genre with a 'Twilight Zone' feel. Lastly, Nico Laeser writes a heartwarming story about an autistic child and the accessibility of love. I enjoy the author's ability to capture inner feelings in this story and other books including his most recent, "Harmonic: Resonance."
The poignant stories range from family humor with adaptable episodes to magically stirred visions emerging the reader into funeral homes, neighborhoods, living rooms, and countrysides across the world. Some of the stories were a little out of this world like the riveting story of SK Holmesley's ' A Stitch In Time,' complete with instructions on saving time and not short on originality in a Sci-Fi fashion. These stories are like sampling the best ice-cream in an ice-cream shop, to discover a variety of the up and coming writers at work - it's great to have a taste so that you know the quality of their longer pieces.
The last seven stories in this anthology give the impression that relationships are compelling and redemptive, nicely harmonizing with the other 21 stories in the grouping. The common theme appears to be 'no choice.' The perfect people show up in life's path, giving us all a chance to feel human with caring, with irony, and destiny all mixed in, to form us into sensitive creatures. Concerned about what other's think about us? Many of the stories cover that dilemma. Time management/priority problems? That too is more than exposed. Puzzled at how others think? An inside glance reveals many examples in life. Some stories are in first person perspective, others third person POV. All good writing. All reminding us of the possibility of separation and that life is too short. Memories keep the love alive or help us accept reality by meeting situations head on in the here and now. Regrets and frustrations are evident in these stories, but ultimately an opening up to ah ha moments of truth allows such incredible connections that prevent separation. All that to say this section, as well as the rest of the Anthology, deserves a full Five Star Rating.
