I was fortunate enough to be one of the early readers on this collection and I must say I was quite impressed! Despite not being my typical reading genre, I was instantly hooked by Miranda Kate’s tales. Well written and sparking the imagination in the very best way!

This book contains two short stories and a novella. The stories were easy, but the novella was a hard pill to swallow. Why? Cause, for starters it’s full of unanswered questions and at the end it leaves you with more questions. Let’s get to it.

Short Story #1:

So Logan and Elise travel through dimensions (jumping through them) and end up in a parallel. I’m not quite sure what was meant by a parallel here. But in the parallel their device used for teleportation turns out to be useless and here tree

I love these short stories of time travel and alternative universes. Each story is absolutely fantastic and this is unusual to find all of the stories so wonderful. I cannot even pick a favorite as they all were fantastic.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Over all, I enjoyed the stories in Slipping Through. The author mentions that the first two stories were originally flash fic, and they seem to still retain the quick, snippet feel of flash. I feel like there is a lot more meat to both stories that could make them longer pieces, should the author decide to go that direction. I'm especially curious about the technology that allows the travelers to "slip through." Where did it come from? How do the people use it? What are the rules? We get a littl ...more

Having a common theme of travelling through time, this book contains 2 short stories and a novella.
InterDimensioning: Travelling via portals Elise and Logan arrive in a strange place where there was no human contact and the trees were lilac.
V.W.G: Vladimir thinks he has cracked the secret to another dimension, but are there forces against him.
The Game: David has been captured to play the Jester’s warped game travelling through different dimensions.
As soon as I started InterDimensioning, I alrea

I was lucky enough to be able to read this little gem of a collection while it was still being edited, and I enjoyed every moment of it, and drank it down in a single sitting, before coming back to reread and revist and ponder on the ideas it raised.

The stories are intruiging, each giving just enough, and leaving you wanting just a little bit more. The first two stories set the theme - sci-fi with an almost fairytaleish, otherworldly flavour - and they were shorter stories that I wouldn't like t

This little collection of three stories following a similar but disturbing theme, basically there are parallel worlds and timelines and what they contain is the prefect fodder for some warped nightmares. Very few characters so no having to remember names which is good for me, but the stories and the content balance everything out and got me thinking.
I do love a book that gets the old grey matter working and letting me question what I think and how I feel, and this does that in spades. How would

I received a copy of this book from TBC Reviewers request- Thank you
This book is a collection of 2 short stories and a Novella. The stories were absolutely brilliant and have left me desperate for another book from the author (wonder if there’s anything in the pipeline).
I don’t often read books where sci fi is the key theme but in Slipping Through Miranda has created a alternative universe that is palatable for the no die hard sci fi’s amongst us.
A lovely read thank you.

Only used the the Flash fiction writing that Miranda does this was a joy to see how her ideas and writing extend into short stories culminating in the Novella, The Game.
I rarely read short stories (Ending before they begin) yet was transported into the three very different worlds, expertly.
In the first short InterDimensioning - It had a very real Sci-Fi vibe. Yet The Game ended up stealing the glory and rightly so; with vibrant, larger than life characters and a twisting, turning plot.

I found this book to be a bit of an odd read and the book doesn't kid when it states that they are stories from different dimensions. You will only enjoy this book depending on your taste. If you only like clear-cut and straight forward books then this is not the read for you. However if like me you like reading something a little bit out of the ordinary then you will find this book a real page-turner. My only gripe with this book personally was the fact that I found it to be a little bit of a s ...more

I'm normally a fantasy reader, but I very much enjoyed this collection of two short stories and a novella. The first involves interdimensional travel, via portal-hopping and reminds me a little of Pratchett and Baxter's Long Earth series. The second addresses the idea of the world as a simulation.

The novella, The Game, has a quite dark concept: the Jester takes people and sends them to other worlds as part of his twisted game. The goal: to catch him, so they can be returned to their own world.

This new collection of short stories from author Miranda Kate is uniquely intriguing. Mrs. Kate's stories always ensnare me with their cleverness and out of the box thinking. The tone she sets is devastatingly hopeful, leaving me whiplashed and emotionally spent at the end of her tales. This is a quick, heart pounding, intriguing read that is sure to ensnare you too.

I don't like to give too much away to the next reader in describing what a book is about. Suffice to say, this one is a science fiction story along the lines of quantum leap, yet sinister and disturbed. People can slip through time to other places, or times to be more precise, only it's a game. And there's a creepy character setting the rules of the game.

It was quite a thrill, this story. And I think there were a few things the writer did really well to help make this a great read. T

A collection of time travel tales that will grip you.

This collection of short stories begins with Interdimensioning and it’s a surreal story that pulls you into new worlds and tugs at your emotions. V.W.G. the second story threw me into the world of computers and altered reality, and kept me turning pages, but it was the last and longest story which completely pulled me into the world of slipping through.

The Game is written in present tense, unlike the other stories, and hooked me immediately.

I have mixed feelings about these three dark fantasy stories. InterDimensioning and VWG have great potential but for me didn't quite work. I was unable to comprehend the nature of the threat in the first story and whilst the author has a easy flowing style, neither tale had a satisfactory conclusion.
I much preferred the longer story 'The Game' which had some brilliant descriptions (I could see this being a film) and a fantastically reprehensible 'Jester'. That said, the story did not

This book is made up with 2 short stories and a novella and all 3 tie in very well in my opinion. Slipping through the dimension is the overall theme and finding new dimensions where humans are not the superior species is very interesting and enjoyable to read. The novella though has so much more potential for further visits. The Jester is a game player and he sends David to another dimension and he has to find the jester and catch him to be returned to his own time frame, of course nothing is e ...more

I like science fiction but this set of stories doesn't explain anything and doesn't contain any scientific ideas so I found it more akin to the horror and fantasy writing made popular by Ray Bradbury and Stephen King. They have both written about slipping through to other worlds eerily similar to our own and even visiting different times. And they've both presented them complete with evil characters who toy with the desires and lives of ordinary mortals for hidden motives.

Slipping through by Miranda Kate.
I really enjoyed this book. The 3 stories went together nicely. I just struggled a little with the 3rd book. I liked the story and some of the characters. By the end I did enjoy book 3. It was different. 4*.

Book loving, writer, who likes to read several books at a time because she's a bit crazy like that.

Go-to authors are Stephen King, James Herbert, Terry Pratchett, Raymond Feist and Clive Barker, with Asimov, Arthur C Clarke, Robert A Heinlein and lots of others in between.

It's not so much about loving particular genres, as much as finding stories and characters to engage and resonate with - but I
