Things I loved about it:
1) The variety. The stories are from all different genres.
2) The writing style. Mr. Edwards has a more narrative-heavy style of writing, but he does it really well. (Think The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks)
3) The twists. There are some cool twists and turns pulled in the stories. Good setup, and then the surprise ending. Well done.
The one thing I didn't like as much was the variety. I know I listed that above as a good thing. It is, provided you know that going in. Then it's ok. It is truly an eclectic collection.
Lastly, you can't beat the price (10 cents per story)! I would recommend this book, and I hope the author takes some of the stories and expands them into novels. Especially Verda (my favorite story).
Plus which, having a variety of subject matter from which to choose, rather than they're all being of the same subject, at least for me, makes it all the more enjoyable as with each story,there is a new and unexpected surprise.
If you're either a fan of short stories, or if you simply like a good read, then I would highly recommend you purchase this book.
There were a few along the way I would have edited out, but that may just be my taste. I look forward to reading more
from this author.
