What a wonderful collection of short and very short stories! If you don't have time to invest in a full-length novel, this is the collection for you. Each story has its build-up and then POW...the endings...they are something else. They aren't cliff-hangers because you know, that person got what was coming to them, or the story has ended satisfactorily. A fantastic sample of work that will have you wondering about the author's novels. Seriously...check this out.

Amazing collection of stories! Something that will appeal to everyone! Loved the twist at the end of Virus, who will be the freaks? Eve of Terror reminded me of The Lottery. Best laid plans gone awry. Dinner for two was so appropriate, I could see me doing that! I enjoyed the element of surprise in each offering. I hope there are more collections coming!

Heads & Tales is an entertaining collection of quickly-read stories from across the spectrum of genres. From divine entities to supernatural creatures to relatable, real-world situations, each story gives you just enough to catch your attention before ending, leaving you craving for more, even as you move onto the next entry.

Really enjoyed reading the different stories in this book. There were some I loved, some I didn't quite get but still enjoyed, and others which were really clever.

I loved Haunted by His Absence about a fear of clowns, it was so clever and most of it was left to the reader's imagination.

Nobel Heart could so easily have been a novel, and it was a good long read. I loved this one and it remained my favourite until I reached Spooky - and no, it's not what you think, either. That was definitely my fa

A great collection of well-written, easy to read short stories.
The book contains a mix of genres, and as with most anthologies, some stories appealed to me than others, and some of them left me wanting more!

My favourites were Haunted by his Absence, Nobel Heart, Crossed and Twist of Fate.

A Great Sampler!!

This book show how talented Karina Kantas is and the many genres she has mastered. The stories are all excellent.They are a tad short compared to what I like but I did completely enjoy it. They are good stories to read at lunch or on a break. There are many genres to choose from and you may find one you thought you didn't care for and change your mind. Pick it up and give it a chance. Be surprised!

As with all books containing multiple shorts, there were some stories I really enjoyed and others that weren't in the style I'm normally drawn to. Overall, I enjoyed this book and the variety it offered - some of the shorts would have made good, longer pieces...and I'd have been happy to read them! An enjoyable read.

This is a fun read indeed! It is a collection of flash fiction. Kantas, the author, is a gifted writer and story teller. She can write in many genres from science fiction to thrillers. I highly recommend this book. You will wish there were more to read, as I did!
