Anthologies are growing on me. I've not read a lot of short stories since my college days. Probably a subliminal thing. Short stories equal homework, something like that. That said the last couple of years I've begun to find my way back to this medium and have been discovering new stories and authors along with re-discovering classics. Coach's Midnight Diner, released earlier this year, is a first in a couple of ways. This anthology is one that introduces us to many new and/or up and coming authors. Some published here for the first time anywhere. And also, it's a collection of mostly speculative/paranormal/horror genre stories written from a Christian world view. Speculative fiction is a growing genre in the Christian fiction market. Some publishers seem to be understanding the potential here. In this reviewers mind, that's a good thing. Like any anthology Coach's Midnight Diner is a mixed bag. There are some great stories here and some . . . well, not so great. The same can be said for most any book of it's kind, so this is hardly a criticism. A few of the best efforts, for me, are The Way Station by Kevin Lucia, Gargoyle by J. Mark Bertrand and Almost A Hero by Mike Dellosso. No doubt you'll find others you like as much or more. Next year I believe we'll see a new volume in the Diner series. I'm already looking forward to whatever it is that the Coach has up his sleeve.
