The Sorrows by Billie Sue Mosiman
"This is a super short collection of bizarrely suspenseful stories. The first story is my favorite; it's about tenacity. Okay, it's about stubbornness. Like that of a kicking mule. And obsession. There's another story, one about patience and forbearan" Read more of this review »

Going Free

Loved this surprising short story. Children playing a game were so realistic you forget you're reading a story. It reminded me a little hoe Stephen King writes his young protagonists. I recommend this story of childhood and shadows.

Pines by Blake Crouch

Fast paced

Crouch writes in paragraphs that are a sentence or two long. That ups the pace of the story. I enjoyed the tale and recommend it.

“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, or making friends. It's about doing what you love the best you know how. It's about making a heart pound in fear, shrink from rage, weep with understanding, or soar with excitement. It's about making worlds and living in them deeply enough someone else can join you there. It's about life changed to words, words changed to life, over and over and over again. It's about giving.”

Bernard M. Baruch

Marilyn Monroe
