This book is a collection of some of my short stories. Woolgathering is an old expression that essentially means daydreaming. I thought it suited these short stories since they do stray from what I generally write, which is horror, and they took me on little journeys away from my usual path. While there are some horror tales mixed into this book it does contain mainstream ...more

“Woolgathering is a collection of short stories by R.E. Wood. Like most such collections, it’s up and down—but fortunately, mostly up. The book contains the following:

“Just a Shadow” is a tale told from the POVs of a ghost and the little girl he hopes to scare. It’s cute and creepy, sometimes at the same time. 5/5

“Perfect” is a tale of obsession and proof that there really is such a thing as loving someone too much. It’s one of the best stories in the book. 5/5

“The Handyman” is about a man who d

I loved the mixture of short stories in this book. Even though most of them were horror (which is what I, myself, write), there were some elements that, at times, made me chuckle (especially in the first story). There were even some elements that brought tears to my eyes (the romance story, in particular). It was a wonderful mix, and they were all well written. I liked the book so much, I decided to follow Mr. Wood on Amazon, and will be reading more of his books in the future. I highly recommen ...more

Having never heard of the author before, I stumbled upon this book through Goodreads in a roundabout sort of way, and I will say I'm glad I did.
There are some charming stories in the mix, some I enjoyed more than others and of course had my favorites yet overall this is a wonderful collection of short stories, quite obvious to me- written from mostly personal experiences. The author only admits this once if I remember correctly yet, is not all writing related to our own personal lives in some w

I have always stayed away from short story collections. I tend to enjoy longer books, because I feel that they allow more time for character development. But I really really enjoyed these stories! I felt like I was sitting around the camp fire listening to a friend tell stories. I loved the characters, and didn't miss not having a long book to read. All the stories in this book painted very vivid pictures of the characters and their lives.

I will definitely be reading more of R.E Wood

generally do not read collections, as novels always draw me in more. There is, however, those rare exceptions that prove their worth and present you with just as satisfying a reading experience as any novel out there. Woolgathering by R.E. Wood is one of those experiences. Although I will say this collection is strictly horror as some of the stories are more suspense and paranormal. Each tale is a page-turner, daring you to walk away. The prose is spot on and is penned with us readers in mind. I ...more

Short Stories That Will Appeal to Both Men & Women!

Woolgathering by RE Wood is an intriguing mix of short stories. Wood's skill of thinking outside the box when contemplating everyday situations ensures the reader will be surprised and laughing one minute, be sad the next or left totally shocked and horrified.

Woolgathering is the perfect book for anyone who loves reading, but only has a few minutes each day to indulge in their favourite pastime.

R. E. Wood is one of my favorite authors. His main focus is on Sci-fi (which you will love) but this book is full of short stories that will surprise you. How? By writing about romance, love, death and heartache - enough to break your heart and want to read more. Though I should not have been, I was surprised some of these stories came out of Wood, himself. They are sensitive, thoughtful and emotional. He has a wonderful ability to write from a woman's point of view. Not easy for a man, as we al ...more
