Devilish Shorts: Three Devil Springs Short Stories (Devil Springs Short Stories) by Jennifer Bramseth
Devilish Shorts: Three Devil Springs Short Stories - Jennifer Bramseth

 

 

The joy of Jennifer Bramseth is she's never afraid to try something new. Devilish Shorts is a link in the chain of a far bigger necklace. It not only ties up a few loose ends, but it sets the stage for something more. Greer is the common thread between three short stories that are insightful, delightful, intriguing and will leave you wanting more. Bramseth has found a masterful way to patiently make readers wait easier to take.

Fragile Things - progress 85/360pg
Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders - Neil Gaiman

I think I might have a little bit of a bookish hangover after binge-reading my way through my entire Halloween Bingo card. I'm having trouble settling in to my first non-bingo books. But it might be this book. I normally am enchanted by Neil Gaiman, but I've been picking this book up and putting it down again since August. I'm starting to think that short stories are just not one of his many talents.

Lullaby ★★★★☆
Lullaby - Jonathan Maberry,Scott Brick

Entirely predictable haunted house story, but still very enjoyable. The author does a fine job of creating the spooky atmosphere and mood and imagery, even if the plot and characters were a little thin. I think Scott Brick's excellent narration elevates it. 

 

Audiobook short story, free for download as part of their new 2 freebies/month Audible Originals perks for members.

20th Century Ghosts ★★★☆☆
20th Century Ghosts - Joe Hill,Christopher Golden

This was, for me, a wildly uneven collection of short stories. I truly enjoyed a little over half of the 15 stories, with several 5 stars among them. The remaining ones didn’t connect for me at all. Pop Art was probably the best, one of those stories that will stick with you long after finishing it. My other favorites: 20th Century Ghost; You Will Hear the Locust Sing; Better Than Home; Bobby Conroy Comes Back from the Dead; and Voluntary Committal.

 

Hardcover version that has been sitting on my shelf for four years, waiting to be read.

 

I read this for the 2018 Halloween Bingo square Ghost Stories: any story involving ghosts or hauntings, including haunted houses, buildings, graveyards, etc

20th Century Ghosts - 77/316pg
20th Century Ghosts - Joe Hill,Christopher Golden

It is my belief that, as a rule, creatures of Happy's ilk - I am thinking here of canines and men both - more often run free than live caged, and it is in fact a world of mud and feces they desire, a world with no Art in it, or anyone like him, a place where there is no talk of books or God or the worlds beyond this world, a place where the only communication  is the hysterical barking of starving and hate-filled dogs.
