Winter's Regret: What Might Have Been

4.27  ·  Rating details ·  22 ratings  ·  6 reviews
To be human is to have regrets, to question decisions, even to doubt our own abilities and capacities. Whether it’s because of a path not taken or a decision made for selfish or – perhaps worse – unselfish reasons, we all have had moments and decisions we regret. We might regret not recognizing an opportunity. In the end, the choices we make help shape our future. The fina ...more

There are 18 stories in this anthology, which means you get 18 chances to explore different voices, worlds, and characters. The common theme is regret, but each story showcases its own interpretation of regret, and it was fun to see how varied our perspectives can be. In Perfection by Mindy McGinnis, for instance, regret rears up its ugly head years later when the mother misses the time she could have spent with her children. In Do Dead Psychics Smoke Cigarettes by Robert McCoy, there's a sci-fi ...more

Up until a few years ago, apart from college assigned 'The Garden Party', I had avoided short stories, preferring to spend my precious reading time on novels I could get stuck into. It was only after a BBC 4 'Open book' recommendation that I once again opened a short story anthology and since then I have enjoyed several, however, this is the first anthology I have read that collects different authors into one book rather than being written by a single author. As such, this may explain w

Interesting concept for an anthology - stories about the choices we regret. A very nice collection of authors and tales - all are easy reads, but leave you with that wonderful desire to think about them long after the story itself is finished.
Some of the stories are poignantly real - like "A Life on Fire", by Morgan George, about Henry Tubbs, whose barn burns, killing all his cows - and what he does in the aftermath. Or "Anguish", by Kelly Heinem, about a woman's complicated, painful relationshi

Beautiful. I have never been so into a book. One of my new favorite books and the introduction, i read it well over 10 times. It's almost as if my heart was speaking and although i had no control over it it told the truth and only the truth. Beautiful book and i was very very impressed especially by the introduction i dont have the words to describe how it smoke to me. The stories were amazing also, some of them showed pure love, some showed how people aren't always what we think they are etc. B ...more

The art of the short story is making a welcome return. Where else can a reader find a complete literary concept crafted in just a few pages and get a feel of a writer's style as succinctly. Every story in this collection is unique in voice and style. All well edited and definitely worth reading.

I received this book as a giveaway. Most of the stories are well written, but be forewarned they are very depressing.
