Entertaining, well-written, and exciting. I was very impressed by these short stories. They’re all suspenseful with just the right amount of detail. Great little reads.

I like how Lea Ryan's mind works - I feel like we live in similar fictional atmospheres, because her writing reminds me much of my own - which in my perspective, is decent writing. Ryan's Like Clockwork and A Tangled Mind begins with the short story A Great Man. The questionable protagonist, Charlie, reminisces about a girl he met last night. He remembers Juni, but relies on a brochure to remind him that he wakes in old, lonely Mason's Inn. The only greeting Charlie gets that morning is the scent of the pale girl he met yesterday. He follows her aroma outside. Once Charlie is orientated, she introduces herself. Still, in the end, he decides who she is. It is his divine privilege.

Review by: Brown Wall Publishing on Dec. 18, 2010 :
From a literary standpoint, I really liked “Amy”, which caused me to want to read the other two books in the collection. (I had previously read “Amy” apart from this collection). “A Great Man”, the first story, seems to have been the last one chronologically written. It demonstrates progression in the writing ability of the author, which is an obviously desirable trait. This does not detract from the quality of the other tales, however. These stories are voyages into the macabre and the paranormal, worthy of a read by fans of those genres. I do not normally read this style of writing, but the author has shown a clear skill in this particular niche. Very well done.

Note to the author: This collection has a good title; however, the stories inside each have different titles. I would like to see an additional story included with a title that matched the title of this collection. ;) I know that this is an artistic choice—the title just sounds like a really good story :)
