"A World of Possibility," an anthology of short fiction by ASMG Goodreads authors compiled by Christopher Shields, is a heterogeneous blend of vibrant writers. We find stories of all genres ranging from Kirstin Pulioff's tale of a young boy and girl unearthing a deadly buried treasure, to Yelle Hughes' detailed account of a journalist's sexual experience while interviewing a porn star. Alan Hardy's sad depiction of a marriage gone stale also deals with sexual frustration.

I was knocked out by the sheer aptitude displayed in this collection of stories. It is a truly inspired piece of work from all concerned. The variety of tales alone is something fresh and engaging and the scope is breathtaking, from including porn stars to a modern day vampire. Hats off to ASMSG, a group of writers of much talent and promise. Everyone should read these tales.

"A World of Possibility" is a wonderful selection of short stories of a remarkably consistent high quality of writing throughout the entire book.
Always unsure what you get from an anthology that includes unknown writers I was glad to be captivated by the opening piece, "The Jumper", and the mystery what said jumper represented in the story.
The book takes us through worlds past and present, into the minds of a killer, victims of abuse, to a possibly haunted Inn, into the past of shipping at Cap

What a wonderful collection of stories, showcasing the talents of many new authors. The stories range, as do the emotions and visuals they invoke. This is the perfect book to read when you only have a few moments... that five minutes waiting for the bus, ten minutes waiting to pick someone up... the perfect collection for everyone.

As a collection of short stories, I found A World of Possibility to be a mixed bag. Some of these stories were quite good. Some of them were stories that I would never have chosen to read, but they turned out to be rather okay. And some of them weren't worth the time it took to read them.

This last category included stories that suffered from mostly bad editing, weak storylines, or both. I guess that's the risk you take with any kind of anthology.

I also found it really unfortunate that the format

Exactly what's on the tin—an anthology of different short stories, some on a much different level than others, but an overall good work in combining them. I might add that nothing in this collection is average, but rather polarizing. Each story is either amazing or awful with little in between.
