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.

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
This is truly an exceptional collection of suspenseful short stories! Each is a thrilling short read. I am amazed at the fruits of Lisa's imagination as you will savor each one.... Between these pages, you'll find tales of demons, pirates, gods, aliens and so much more... Highly recommended!

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?
