Smashwords book reviews by James S. Hoch

    The short story is alive and well...and it isn't just with Stephen King. Chris has compiled an excellent collection of creepy, well-crafted stories. There are tales like Something Different that are written in the vein of Rod Serling and others such as Frosted Glass tip a nod to the OUTER LIMITS. I really enjoyed the author's writing style. It was clean and I know all his English teachers would be proud. If you enjoy short stories, definitely pick this collection up. You will be entertained.
