Disclaimer: I have two poems in this collection.

This is a great read, a collection of short stories and poems that covers a diverse range of genres. An easy book to dip in and out as you finish each story. A good one to keep on your phone or ipad for those times when you are waiting- the time will fly as you are transported into some strange new worlds.

I particularly enjoyed Leo McBride's story 'The Clay Man.' He uses as inspiration one of the bog people, preserved for centuries in peat bogs. Instead of talking about death, the story celebrates his life, and paints an evocative image of the bog man and his thoughts.

Brent Harris has a spooky story 'The Intruder' which has a unique perspective that gives the story a spine tingling edge. Eric Martell has a post apocalyptic story 'One Candle from Dark' which keeps you flicking pages to the end, wondering. Mike Arneson also has an interesting twist on a detective story, where old fashion detective work must track criminals in a world of magic.

The book is enhanced with artwork by Dave Alexander.
