I have typed before about my love of a good short story collection. Variety is the spice of life and this collection is full of variety. The first book ends with a quote that sets the stage for the rest of the collection “Let’s just run down that track.” And sure enough, the run began. The stories vary in size – some just a page, others several pages and in genre from sweet to down right creepy. One that stuck with me even after I closed my Kindle was Safe Room – I don’t want to give away too much but it intensely looks at the amount of control one is willing to give up in order to feel safe.
Another impactful one was To Infinity – don’t skip to this part – but the last line – GASP!
Giants is presented to the reader from the eyes and mind of a young child. Perspective can be everything.
Gift of Empathy left me with a lot of food for thought. And there are so many others. The perfect pick up and put down to pick up again book.
Tales of mirth, imagination, and mayhem.
Nothing is quite what it seems in this realm. Partners cross each other, intentionally or otherwise. Late-night visitors appear from nowhere and linger long after they’re gone. Mountain lakes, forests, and caves harbor secrets best not revealed. And every day, curious encounters change lives.
In this eclectic gathering of thirty-one short tales, including award-winning flash fiction and longer stories, you’ll encounter crimes gone wrong, one-way journeys to other worlds, and ordinary people entangled with extraordinary circumstance. Some will chill you, some will get you thinking, and some will have you laughing out loud.
Because in The Realm of Tiny Giants, something unexpected is always just around the bend.
