I received “Somewhere in the Middle of Eternity” from Phil Giunta, author and editor, back in August 2014. It’s an anthology featuring thirteen stories in various genres’; Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Fantasy, Past, Present and Futuristic. One of the great things about anthologies is you’re bound to find a few stories you really connected with and enjoyed. One of the best things about this book is that I found enjoyment from each of the stories.

Each author brings their own unique style to the compilation

I was very excited to start reading this collection, as a book of short sci-fi, fantasy, horror and supernatural stories is a rare creature indeed. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy as much as I had hoped.

Although the stories were creative, and each had their own set of interesting circumstances, I felt that in general they paid too much attention to their respective genres and not enough to story and character development. Many of the characters felt secondary to the worlds in which they existed,

Biased review: I am one of the authors included in the collection.

A fine mix of science fiction, fantasy and horror from a diverse group of writers. You will find stories set during WW2 Japan, contemporary America and worlds in the far future. There are tales of a haunted barn, a fox who has a debt to pay, a vampire with his own therapist, dancing girls who are more than they appear, a man plagued by the spirit of death, a scientist obsessed with the "Proxima Punchbowl", and an alien explorer w

Normally, I do not prefer to read short stories. This collection became the exception to the rule. We read it for a book club since we were going to host the author and I really enjoyed it! The stories were so disparate that it truly kept my attention and found some of them quite well written.

As with most anthologies, I liked some of the stories and others I skipped. Most of them were enjoyable and a quick read. I always give anthologies a 3 since they are a mixed bag. The stories were definitely clever and entertaining.

An exceptional book of short stories. Another anthology is coming out in July and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. Kudos to the writers

This was a fantastic anthology that I won on a Goodreads giveaway. There wasn't a story in this that I didn't really like and there were a few I would like to reread at some point.

Full disclosure: I'm one of the contributing authors to this volume. That's the only reason I haven't given it a starred rating. However, having just finished reading it, I did want to say a few words on its behalf.

By nature, I don't read supernatural, horror or s-f. But that's what we have here and, having been invited by my friend and this book's editor, Phil Giunta, to contribute a story that barely qualified for inclusion, I looked forward to reading what my fellow authors came up with.

My favorite tales:
Don't Go In The Barn, Johnny! -- A tingler of a tale exploring the nature of darkness.
Photos in the Attic -- A satisfying creepfest
Form and Substance -- A sci-fi with a heart
Deluge -- A story where the reader solves the riddle along with the protagonist, sucks me in every time.
A few places where I had to re-read to get it, and a few stories where the ending felt rushed; but overall an engaging & imaginative read.

Mostly fantasy and paranormal, which is not my genre, so I did not read the whole book and won't rate it, but there is a clever story by Daniel Patrick Corcoran.
