Spooky tales told while huddled around a campfire.
Memories of "the good old days" shared by grandparents.
Alien invasions by flashlight, under the covers, after bedtime.

Short stories are like Forgotten Treasures you find in a trunk in the attic, just waiting to be discovered.

So first of all let me tell you that I love everything Lisa writes. So when I found out that she publiced a book with short stories I just had to read it. And just as I suspected she didn’t dissapoint me.
Some of the stories are beautiful, some are surprising and some are just really scary. I just know that some of the stories I’ve read will haunt me at nigt and keep me scared of the dark shadows. While others made me cry because they had such a beautiful and lovely ending. Once again I can’t hel

Wonderful collection of short stories from Lisa Kessler. She has quite the gift of story telling, with a wide range of dark, spine-tingling topics. Thoroughly enjoyed this! Very easy to pick up and read in spurts.

How does one review a book of short stories? Particularly one with so many different types of tales thrown in the mix? I had high hopes for this book, because I love the nostalgic synopsis. Treasures found in an attic - what a great way to present a book of stories.

First of all, I was thrown off by the spotty editing. There are quite a few grammatical errors in this book. Horses gate, rather than gait, for instance, there is a severe shortage of commas throughout the volume. This book could have

This review is based on a free copy of this book received from the author through the Goodreads First Read program.

Lisa Kessler has a SUPER imagination. This is demonstrated by the stories in this book. While all different in subject matter, running from demons, to outer space, to mages, ghosts, animated houses etc etc. the story telling is at the highest level.

The majority of the stories have a twist in that you are reading them and think you have it figured out and, right out of left field, at

I Enjoyed this book very much. there are 25 short stories divided in many categories. these stories remind me of tv shows such as The Twilight zone, Night Gallery, and Are you Afraid of the Dark? I was one of the lucky Good reads winners who won this book. I especially liked the stories.Stranded, a tear jerker about a tow truck driver who rescues a woman and her abandoned car, Demon's Christmas, who was put on earth to raise havoc by stealing children's homework but he loves Christmas. an intere ...more

Wow! Goodreads just asked me for my city of birth and date of death... What if I could answer that? Would I live life differently if I knew for sure how much longer I had left?

Interesting thought.

That's generally how my writer brain works. I've been dreaming up stories since I was in elementary school. My first book was titled
