Reviews of Dark Winds Over Wellington: Chilling Tales of the Weird & the Strange by Tabatha Wood

Simon Fung reviewed on July 16, 2021

A series of supernatural short stories, loosely connected by the setting. A really easy read. Loved how in many of the stories that the supernatural was only one of many problems for the protagonist, and how 'everyday problems' (having your problems minimised by others, general anxiety, socioeconomic) mingled seamlessly with the light horror. A mixture of writing styles keeps the stories fresh. Highly recommend.
