I don’t know if you guys know this or not, but I am moving some of my stuff from azombiefortheholidays.wordpress.com over to this site. I am also going to stop posting to that site as well. The reason. I’m just out of ideas for that blog, and I don’t have the time to grow it.
So with that said, one of the features I did love doing over there is now over here. It’s my Short Bites category where I read a short story I find on Amazon, and I post a review about it. Case in point, this story. A good collection that stood out to me from the other short stories I have read so far. Not just because it is four stories in one, but the author really grabs you with each one of them.
So what happens after you die? Do you go to heaven, or hell? Or do you go to a special place fashioned just for you based on the life you’d lived in the real world? Based on how you treated people? What you did to them?
This one is a really good starter for this collection. Interesting how this is told from the point of view of the ghost as he relives his life and mistakes. A great opener – grabbed me right away.
Running with the Train…
Sarah has always been lonely. Searching for a love she’s begun to believe will never come. Her family and friends depend, need her…but they can’t give her what she wants. True, eternal love. Like the wolves have.
Any story involving Werewolves and you can count me in. This was a good little short story, but it didn’t stick with me as much as the others.
The Banshee and the Witch…
What would you do to live forever, stay young forever? To find true love again? And if you were a white witch with the magical powers to make it happen…and the secret of how to do it, would you?
This one is probably my favorite of the bunch. I at first didn’t think it would get me, because it was dealing with Wtches. That isn’t my favorite Genre to read, but there is something about this story that just wins you over. I’m not sure about the who’s and what’s of the Witch world, but it seems like this author really knows her stuff. I really enjoyed this one.
Too Close to the Edge…
Artist Penelope had been looking forward to going with her husband, sister and brother-in-law to see the Grand Canyon…even though she was terrified of heights and, when she got there, couldn’t bear to get too close to the edge. She watched people balancing on one foot, acting foolish, taking photos, oblivious of the death waiting below them. It scared her.
A good solid closer, and a hard one for parents to read. I had no idea there were so many ghosts around the Grand Canyon, but it makes sense when you think about it.
