Something New In Reading

Now that the holidays have come and gone, and our purses are lighter, we are all looking for bargains. How many times have you seen a book advertised by an indie writer and thought you’d like to read it? There’s that twinge of uncertainty. Is the author any good? Suppose you don’t like the book or the writing style? Electric Eclectic offers a new series … Continue reading Something New In Reading

“Cons, Dames & G-Men” An Anthology

Part Two: I grew up reading crime stories and watching crime movies. I don’t mean the kind of crime tales you can get now. I’m talking about the gritty crime of the thirties through the early fifties. My father introduced me to the genre and I was immediately hooked. Back then people didn’t give a lot of thought to what was appropriate for children. So, … Continue reading “Cons, Dames & G-Men” An Anthology

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Night Passengers by Charlie Flowers and Hannah Haq

  Although I have never read anything by Hannah Haq prior to this story, I have read several of the Riz Sabir thrillers authored by Charlie Flowers. Flowers writes some great action stories, all revolving around the character Riz Sabir (Hard Kill) and his gang of girls who work off the grid for British intelligence. The short story the duo has included in Twisted Tales … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Night Passengers by Charlie Flowers and Hannah Haq

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns Kindle Edition: The 13th Sign by Jean Gill

I’ve enjoyed Jean Gill’s well researched and beautifully written historical fiction series; Song at Dawn, Bladesong, and Plaint for Provence. Her short story for Twisted Tales is very different from these books. The 13th Sign is a fantasy/science fiction story about the creation or addition of a new zodiac sign, Ophiuchus. Gill gives voice to the zodiac signs and the story is an amusing examination … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns Kindle Edition: The 13th Sign by Jean Gill

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Agent by Alex Shaw

    I love a good international spy story. I was reading Ian Fleming’s James Bond series when I was less than thirteen, much to my parents chagrin. I’d only read one of Alex Shaw’s books, Cold Blood, before diving into his short story in the anthology Twisted Tales. The Agent is a well written short that packs a neat punch. Set in Spain, British … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: The Agent by Alex Shaw

TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: “Karmic Odds” by Mark Fine

I must confess Mark Fine is one of my favorite indie author’s. I further confess his short story contribution to Twisted Tales, Karmic Odds, is one of my favorite stories in the collection. With the same adept use of prose he shows in his full length novel, The Zebra Affaire, Fine weaves a tale that is both compelling and disturbing. Beginning with an easy pace, … Continue reading TWISTED TALES: 15 Literary Lies & Epic Yarns: “Karmic Odds” by Mark Fine
