  •     This collection of short stories is a gem; brimming with imaginative ideas and written so well that it is a shame when you get to the end of each, but easy to go back and read all over again. The endings are never what you think they are going to be which adds to the intrigue. Highly recommended.
  •     Okay, I've been re-reading this book and had to come edit my review. Here's what I wrote the first time:"This collection is very provocative, stretching the imagination in truly untraditional ways. Often, at the end of the story, there will be one last twist that actually makes me gasp with surprised delight. Some of the tales are pure sci-fi, some are pure ghost story--and some combine the two, which is really fun. All of them will make you think.Excellent illustrations, too. They are as bold and mysterious as the tales themselves.I definitely recommend this book."Now amplify that. Those zinger endings are brilliant every single time. Some of them make me cry for joy, some make me shiver with fear, and some just leave my jaw hanging. Instone has really thought about things in some mind-stretchy ways, and none of these stories feels like a parrot of some other work. The very fact that I've read the stories now three or four times each shows that I can find something new to appreciate each time through.So, yes. I definitely recommend this book. But more accurately, I say, "Get this book and read it, already! It's really awesome!!"
