Reviews of In a Small Compass - Vol. 1 by Karen Oberlaender

Michelle James reviewed on July 27, 2020

In a Small Compass, v1 is a collection of 15 short stories taking the reader to different locations around the world. The stories are suspenseful with a paranormal element. This collection can be read in one sitting or the stories can be read individually when time is short. I enjoyed them and read them in one sitting.

Marcia Carrington reviewed on June 7, 2017

IN A SMALL COMPASS is a thought-provoking short story collection exploring themes such as telepathy and the paranormal in a suspenseful, entertaining manner. The stories all had something revealing and witty to say about the human condition, making this an easy-read book. I look forward to seeing the next instalment of this collection, and longer standalone stories by the author.
