I participated in the Kickstarter for this anthology because of meeting Crazy 8 author Mary Fan at Farpoint. I'm quite glad I did because nearly all of these knocked it out of the park! And those that didn't were still good stories that I enjoyed reading.

I've been into pulp fiction ever since picking up the Big Pulp series at Baltimore Comic-Con nearly a decade ago. There's something really fun that can come from allowing a story to go whereever it goes - even if that ends up being a prurient p

This book has stories from many different genres - fantasy, sci-fi, steampunk, gothic and even romance! There were a couple that I didn’t really care for, but most of them were engaging and enjoyable. The accompanying artwork adds to the stories.

I particularly liked Opium Dreams (historical), Girl Running from House (romance with gothic vibes), Hate Hop, (the Lester Dent story), and Not Just an Intern (a straight-up romance). I would give all those stories a solid 4 stars.

One factor that lowered

This book is a collection of short stories written by several different authors. Some I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. There is something for everyone in this book. It covers a multitude of genres. So take a look and go on an adventure.

Very enjoyable read. Collection of short stories. The stories are just the right length. Takes about 15-20 minutes to read one of them. They cover a wide range of genres from horror to suspense to action. Definitely has that old pulp story feel with a tinge of a modern feel as well. A+

Never has a book been so perfectly titled thanks to the wildly varying mixture of stories chosen for inclusion all of which meet the requirements of having that certain something that grips the imagination yet remains just a little off balance. Pirates, Private Eyes, Mask wearing crime fighters, Alien Invasions, Magic, Ghosts, Gunslingers and so much more delight and entertain in this excellent anthology. Highly recommended for something a little bit different on your reading list.

I wanted to give this book five stars. I thought the stories were a lot of fun, and this kind of anthology is right up my alley. Unfortunately, I couldn't give it that high a rating because it was not edited or proofread nearly as well as it should be. There were numerous typos, run-on sentences, missing punctuation, and even stray pieces of sentences that weren't completely deleted during rewrites. Sadly, these errors kept me from becoming as immersed in the book as I would have liked. ...more

3.5 stars. A mixed bag of stories from different genres. Overall a good read, but as expected with a short story collection, not all the stories fit my tastes. The best thing I can say about the collection is that I backed it on Kickstarter a few months ago, and I’m glad that I did.
