Coulrophobia & Fata Morgana - Gilbert Al... Coulrophobia & Fata Morgana - Gilbert Allen;Terry Dubow;Valerie Fioravanti;M.S. Allen;Jacob M. Appel;Kathleen Toomey Jabs;Tom Juvik;Amina Gautier;Nick Healy

I received this book for free through LibraryThing's Member Giveaways.

 

I really enjoyed this and typically I have a hard time with short stories. Usually, I find them to be polarizing; I either love the story or hate it. With this collection I liked pretty much all of them They were all really creative and different and overall just refreshing to read. My favorites were, "Pollen," "Saluting the Magpie," and "Hearth and Home."

Coulrophobia & Fata Morgana
Coulrophobia & Fata Morgana - Gilbert Al... Coulrophobia & Fata Morgana - Gilbert Allen;Terry Dubow;Valerie Fioravanti;M.S. Allen;Jacob M. Appel;Kathleen Toomey Jabs;Tom Juvik;Amina Gautier;Nick Healy I have often, when standing behind someone at the check-out, or waving at someone in passing that I have never really spoken to-- just friendly waves, or seeing a teenager sitting on the curb, wondered what their families are like, their homes, and lives. And every family has weirdness in it somewhere, some more than others, but it is there somewhere. In any given day, by someone in the subway, sitting across from them in the doctors, bumping into them at the crosswalk, we probably glance at people from a wide range of family types... some from happy, quiet families, others from loud, raucous, playful ones, others highly dysfunctional, and still some that nightmares are made of. Mr. Appel, in this collection of short stories, gives us a glimpse into some random peoples' lives-- just a brief window. They say that life is stranger than fiction, and Jacob Appel has captured that essence. He is a wonderful storyteller, with a vivid imagination, and a artist with imagery. He pens with a wry sense of humor that often had me laughing out loud. I would recommend this book to all literature lovers!
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review. Thank you Mr. Appel.

Oltre la frontiera
Oltre la frontiera - Miki Monticelli

Lucio è un ragazzo vispo con il gran desiderio di viaggiare e conoscere il mondo. L'occasione arriverà senza farsi troppo attendere, ma non sarà affatto un viaggio di piacere.
Il padre di Lucio lavorando a stretto contatto con le piante infette ha contratto lo strano stesso morbo e solo nel mondo degli umani Lucio può trovare la cura per salvare suo padre e la valle.
Oltre la Frontiera è il primo volume della trilogia "Cronache della Valle Nascosta", il seguito della Trilogia della Fata di Città dove Cornelia scopre di essere una Fata, per di più l'unica fata umana esistente. Un racconto che ho letteralmente divorato come la trilogia precedente e non vedo l'ora di assaggiare il seguito "Il labirinto d'argento".
