I rarely leave reviews of books I have not finished reading but... When I grabbed this book I was planning to read it later. I just started reading the first page to see what it's like. This first story started so interestingly and grabbed your attention from the start. I cannot stop reading it. Great job!

I really enjoyed the majority of the short stories. Gary Davies is a gifted short story writer and very generous with the amount of stories in this free eBook. A must download!

Other than the awful detective story near the beginning that almost had me hitting 'delete', this collection of short stories was fun to read. I'm glad I didn't dump it, though it was a last resort read.

I'm an 'old school' sci-fi fan, and hard to please; so I was pleasantly surprised. The writing style was well edited, and easy to read. The stories were well thought out -and well told. Very imaginative. The author obviously has a knack for short stories.

Definitely a worthwhile read. Nice to see some stories that are NOT about vampires or zombies. Liked baby dragon cover and the two stories (#1 and #20) that it relates to. Liked the humor especially. I liked most the 'happy' stories such as the 'early retirement' story with elves and ghostly dinosaurs, and the 'talking turtle' story. Liked the private eye story. Liked the diversity of story subjects. Liked to see 'technology' based sci-fi stories mixed with fantasy stories. Liked to see both first-person and 3rd person omnipotent voices. He should have labeled this as 'urban' fantasy, maybe. Looking forward to his novels.
