I will be honest with you guys, I didn't expect to love a collection of supernatural short stories all that much. But I have loved Kuhn's work in the past so I gave these a whirl.

Was I ever happy to be wrong again. Fans of The Twilight Zone will LOVE these, they contain all of the same creepy elements.

I kept expecting Rod Serling to pop up and say, "Imagine if you will a world where Deetz enjoys the supernatural..." Lolz.

My favorites were The Case Against Humanity and Le

This book is a compilation of short stories inspired by The Twilight Zone original series. Before each short story, the Author shares his thoughts and inspiration behind each story. The tales have a creepy supernatural vibe which makes them perfect stories to read while curled up on the couch on chilly fall nights as Halloween approaches. Short Story and Twilight fans will not be disappointed. Like The Twilight Zone, these ten tales are a mix of Science fiction, the supernatural, light horror and fa ...more

Are our dreams nothing more than glimpses into other worlds than this?  Of what value are time slippages, itchy brains, and temper tantrums?  Do we really need a hovering AI presence in our homes?  The author offers plenty of points to ponder in this collection of darkish tales.  

This would be a fine choice for a Halloween read, especially for those who don't want to go all the way over to the dark side, but would like to have a little taste.  My favorites were For the Hive, My Little Girl, Terror

I'm aware that it's an odd way to describe a collection of supernatural short stories, but there was something incredibly comforting about this book. Yes, there were touches of horror, and more than once I felt the hairs stand up on the back of my neck, but the overall sense was one of gleeful anticipation than all-out terror. These are the kind of tales we loved to hear around the camp fire as children, and which offer a sense of warmth and sentimentality as we grow older. I loved each and ever ...more

4 - 5⭐ I’m trying not to be quite so set in my ways with my genres and as I don’t read much sci-fi and this had great reviews, I left my comfort zone and really enjoyed this well written collection of stories. There are some really imaginative stories here, some featuring dystopian worlds, some magical, some that are a bit creepy but there’s also some humour. My favourite is Sally Ann, Queen of the Galaxy because of the Alice in Wonderland references and the fantastic end just blew me away. I al ...more

3.5 stars. This collection of ten SF/fantasy short stories by Kevin Kuhn has a distinctly retro, Twilight Zone type of vibe to it. They're not overall as dark as the title led me to believe, but they do tend to go for the slightly (or sometimes more than slightly) disturbing twist.

There's a lot of variation in subject matter here: accidentally switching places with near-counterpart people from almost-parallel worlds; a huge brain - surely dead! - found on an alien world (that one really re

Plausible...
Kevin has mind-bending imagination...
It’s amazing that stories about artificial intelligence, fading children, other planets,
etc., would make for such human warmth and psychologically astute stories.
Kevin Kuhn made me look at life differently!

Very enjoyable collection!!

The author was inspired to write this collection of short stories by his memories of watching reruns of "The Twilight Zone" series, as a boy.

Wikipedia: "The Twilight Zone is an American anthology television series created and presented by Rod Serling which ran for five seasons on CBS from 1959 to 1964. Each episode presents a stand-alone story in which characters find themselves dealing with often disturbing or unusual events, an experience described as entering "The Twilight Zone" often with a

Welcome to the dark side, the creepy side, the side that makes for wonderful campfire tales. Kevin A. Kuhn has put together some very short, very edgy tales that reach beyond reality and into the recesses of our minds where we look for “what ifs.”

TEN TALES OF A DARK TOMORROW are sometimes hair-raising, sometimes a little eerie, and always just short enough to remember to re-tell or just remember with a little chill or two. Kevin Kuhn cleverly pulls us in quickly, builds the tension than, BAM! The story is overifs.”

The majority of the stories are either science fiction or unusual happenings in normal life. The author brings us variety from My Little Girl, which explores the concept of parallel worlds and how a mother would deal with her daughter being sucked into one and replaced with an “almost” perfect
