I enjoyed this book very much. Every character is realistically written and terms the author uses to describe the thoughts, micro-expressions and actions that people make (no matter how small or seemingly minor) add authenticity to the experience.

As thoroughly human as most principle characters are, the paranormal aspects are original, infinitely interesting.. and the sort of beings that left me pondering for a long time after I'd finished each - very short - piece of fiction.

That brevity, in it

This book is a solid 4.5 stars. It's missing a half only because I wanted more stories.

The themes of the stories are varied and yet all fit well in this collection. I enjoyed the author's writing style, which flowed easily and revealed a well- and widely-read individual. A bonus for me was the inclusion of South African settings.

The stories with children in them reminded me of the creepy books I enjoyed as a child - particularly Goosebumps and the Wicked! series by Paul Jennings & Morris Gleitz

Graham Downs' new offering, "Heaven and Earth: Paranormal Flash Fiction" is a fresh and enjoyable collection of weirdness. It opens up with some straight-up horror with "The Thing in the Window", with a non-Hollywood-ish ending that sets the tone for the rest of the book. The idea could be expanded into a larger story, in fact, and I wondered if Downs will ever do just that.

"An Automatic Decision" was a surprise for me, with a very interesting concept that I quite enjoyed. But perhaps my favouri

"Heaven and Earth: Paranormal Flash Fiction"s a fast fun read. With six flash fiction stories Graham Downs covers everything from horror to humor. I enjoyed this fast read, however, I do wish there were more stories. I recommend this book to new readers of Graham Downs. It gives the reader a taste of just how talented Graham is, without giving too much away, influencing the reader to explore more into his works.
This is not my first time reading Graham Downs and I will still continue to seek out

The short piece for today is called “Heaven and Earth” by Graham Downs.
The genre is paranormal flash fiction.

This short collection contains six stories. It is hard to describe such a short piece of work without giving away any of the plots. It's a quick read of stories that involve horror and suspense to humor.

My con with this piece is six stories is not enough. You are given just enough to wet your whistle and than it is over. I did enjoy most of the stories that peaked your interest to turn
